An enchanting historical romance from the 2018 RITA award-winning author that New York Times bestselling author Sarah MacLean calls "a charming, clever, and engaging storyteller."
Named to All About Romance's "The Best of 2018!"
Duke. Scoundrel. Titan of business. August Faulkner is a man of many talents, not the least of which is enticing women into his bedchamber. He's known-and reviled-for buying and selling companies, accumulating scads of money, and breaking hearts. It's a reputation he wears like a badge of honor, and one he intends to keep.
Clara Hayward, the headmistress of the Haverhall School for Young Ladies, on the other hand, is above reproach. Yet when she's reunited with August all she can think of is the way she felt in his arms as they danced a scandalous waltz ten long years ago. Even though her head knows that he is only back in her life to take over her family's business, her heart can't help but open to the very duke who could destroy it for good.
"Where have you been all my life, Kelly Bowen? If Julia Quinn, Sarah MacLean, and Lisa Kleypas were to extract their writing DNA, mix it in a blender, and have a love child, Kelly Bowen would be it."-HeroesandHeartbreakers.com
Wish there was an epilogue
Although good the story left questions. Some parts were needlessly long. The sex scenes were thrilling and different from other authors, like Sabrina Jeffries. A good way to pass the time but not a page turner.
This book was so good. It made me laugh and cry (happy tears).
Learning to understand yourself and learning to love another
This was a love story that was infused with problems to overcome, affection, soul searching, and humor. Respect was there but trust wasn’t. As the story evolves, a greater understanding and admiration of the characters develops. This was a wonderfully enjoyable book to read.
