STORY: What happens when a bride ends up with the wrong groom? In Rebecca Kelley’s witty, passionate tale of romance, sparks fly between an eligible lady who doesn’t trust her desires and the roguish suitor determined to prove her wrong.
Wolfgang Hardwicke, the Earl of Northcliffe, is up to no good, as usual. He doesn’t know why he comes to the aid of a drunken gambler. He certainly isn’t expecting to be rewarded with a glimpse of the gambler’s exquisite sister—and yet one glimpse is not enough. So Wolfgang is absolutely thrilled to see her again, lighting up a dull party as she plays piano. But to win this glorious musician’s hand, the notorious rake will have to change her tune—fast.
Miss Grizelda Fleetwood has no interest in romance—she’s only marrying to save her family from financial ruin. That is, if she can find a suitable match before the unprincipled and relentless Earl of Northcliffe ruins her reputation. Unlike her not-so-secret admirer, Zel is an unabashed do-gooder with a soft spot for those in need. But if Zel is too generous with Wolfgang, she might find herself walking down the aisle with the one man she never expected—a husband she loves with all her heart.
REVIEW: This story was predictable, yet I liked it. For that I give credit to the wonderful characterization of the two leads. Both were too good to be true and I still loved them. Their romance was fun and funny!
Seriously, if you love your romance to have a bit of drama, comedy and move at a fast pace, I recommend this one.
