In this instant USA Today bestseller, a marriage of convenience between a duke's niece and a reformed rogue leads to a delightful battle of wills.
For Miss Charlotte Windham, the best way to maintain her spinsterhood -- and her independence -- is a teeny, tiny brush with scandal. She chooses wealthy, handsome upstart Lucas Sherbourne as her unwitting accomplice. He's intelligent, logical, and ambitious. What Charlotte doesn't count on is that one kiss will lead them straight to the altar. Sherbourne has no love for polite society, nor is he keen on being anybody's husband of last resort. He is attracted to Charlotte's boldness, though -- and her family's influence. Without a title, he knows he'll never truly be part of their world, even as he and Charlotte inch closer to a marriage that means much more than convenience. But a scheming business partner is about to test that tenuous trust, forcing Sherbourne to make a drastic choice: his wealth or his wife. "Smart, sexy, and oh-so romantic." -- Mary Balogh "If you're not reading Grace Burrowes you're missing the very best in today's Regency Romance!" -- Elizabeth Hoyt

I liked this story of two people each who were very much on their own. But they end up together and it’s just a great story, and a satisfying conclusion to the Windhams, at least for now!
Charlotte and Lucas were made for each other
What a feisty, fantastic pair Lucas and Charlotte are. I love her intelligence and grit. I marvel at Grace Burrowes’ ability to create so many different yet strong women. Not an insipid miss among them! And of course the men must be srong in a complementary fashion. Great end to the Windham Brides series.
I wanted to like this one!
I was looking forward to this book for weeks, but it has been a disappointment. It has taken me three days to get half way into it and I'm bored! Normally I can sit down and in a few hours I'll have devoured a good book. This is not that book!
I've skipped several pages already.
The characters aren't un-likable or likable. They are more flat and uninteresting than anything. I just can't muster up any empathy or feeling of any kind for them. They're dreadfully boring!
The plot is achingly predictable and unimaginative. I don't have to go any further into the pages to know how it ends and quite frankly, I have no desire to read any further.
Wish I could get my money back.
