Second in the beloved, hilarious Regency series that launched the career of New York Times bestselling author Katie MacAlister.
If Dare thinks he can escape his fate...
Having weathered the scandal of elopement with an Italian count who subsequently had the bad taste to die, Lady Charlotte Collins has set her sights on Alasdair "Dare" McGregor—one deliciously handsome and brilliantly inventive Scottish earl.
Then he doesn’t know Charlotte
Charlotte doesn’t accept that the McGregor family fortune is a sham and Dare is working desperately hard to find a way out. She has no intention of giving up one iota of either the success or the connubial bliss they both so clearly deserve. She will simply have to take their destiny into her own hands…with explosive results.

What was the author thinking?
I honestly adore this author and everything that she has written… up to this book. The second in a Regency set of books, I had high hopes for this book after the previous had me laughing till I was crying multiple times. I will say that the heroine is not at all relatable or likable. She spends time either making a hash of the english language, lusting after the husband she tricks into marriage or whining about how everyone hates her for eloping (before the main plot of the story), because, as she describes it, she was bored. There was very little redeeming qualities of this character (her husband had to tell her they were poor more times then I care to count before it finally sank in, as she was too busy lusting after him every time she saw a bared forearm). I am only halfway through and I am sure that the character becomes less insipid, but as it stands right now, reading this character is too painful to finish the book, as there is absolutely nothing appealing or admirable about her so far. I would not recommend this book as an example of this author's brilliantly amusing work.
