Publisher Description

She’s capable of many things—including driving him mad.


At the start of their London Season, Philippa Clavering discovers her friend Susan is being pursued by the wrong gentleman and decides to turn Susan’s head to a worthier suitor. Not one to shrink from what she views as her duty and gift, Philippa sets plans in motion to bring about the happy ending her friend deserves. What she does not expect is to have Susan’s older brother watching—and criticizing—her every move.


After a respectable number of years on the town, Jack Blythefield is at last contemplating the idea of settling down. What he seeks is a compliant wife to provide him an heir or two and make his home comfortable while he spends his evenings at the club where a man can get some peace. What he does not need is a termagant who sets his life on end with madcap schemes which invariably involve his unwilling assistance.


However, when the reputation of Jack’s family is threatened, Philippa is the one he turns to. And as her most determined suitor grows assured of his conquest, Jack must decide if a comfortable and docile wife is truly what he seeks, or if he should throw down the gauntlet of his heart before Philippa closes court.

Recommended

Jennie Goutet does a great job of developing the characters and getting you invested in their welfare.
Phillipa and Jack did not initially hit it off, and there were many obstacles that came up. It was interesting to see how their feelings evolved and changed.

I love a good romance and a happy ending. I would have liked maybe a little less politics and more romance in this story, but the politics did play a crucial part in the plot. Overall a very enjoyable read.
