STORY: England, 1811. Delia Somerset despises the privileged ton, but her young sister, Lily, is desperate to escape their family’s scandalous past and join high society. Unwilling to upset her sister, Delia reluctantly agrees to attend a party at the Sutherland estate—and avoid the gossip at all costs.
Alec Sutherland is known as a hot-headed scoundrel, but nothing gets a rise out of him as much as the news that his brother desires Delia’s hand in marriage. She is, after all, the daughter of the London belle who soiled their family name. He’s determined to ruin her reputation as well, in the most delicious way possible. It’s only a matter of time before he can woo her with his irresistible advances.
As Delia devilishly plays along in Alec’s game, determined to prove the joke is on him, they inch ever closer to repeating history. And in this game of seductive glances, scandalous whispers, and old debts, the outcome might be much more than either of them anticipated…
REVIEW: This was a fun and entertaining debut and despite it being predictable, I liked the pace and the plot of it. The characters needed to grow on me as the story developed, but once they did, I enjoyed their banter and romance development.
I also liked the secondary characters, Lily and Robyn as well as Charlotte and Ellie. Every time they spoke, for some reason I giggled.
If you’re looking for a light, humorous and entertaining romance, you found it!
