STORY: As a young, penniless gentleman, Maxwell Harwick knew he had little to offer Juliet White—the most beautiful debutante of the season—except his love, and one thoroughly scandalous kiss. But when they were discovered in a compromising position, a nearly ruined Juliet fled into the arms of a rich, older lord… taking Max’s heart with her.
Now a widow, Lady Juliet Granworth intends to use the fortune she inherited from her odious husband to build a new life in London. Five years have passed, but she’s never forgotten Max… or his soul-searing kiss. Yet it’s clear the newly-minted Marquess of Thayne has not forgiven her—after all, the infuriating man can barely stand the sight of her. But Juliet has endured far too much to give up without a fight and if it’s a battle of wills he wants, it’s a battle he’ll get.
He hates her for breaking his heart. She detests him for destroying her future. But beneath all the loathing simmers an intoxicating passion that neither can ignore… and the harder they resist, the harder they will inevitably fall.
REVIEW: This is book three of the Season’s Original series and we finally get to Max and Juliet’s happily ever after.
Even though each of these stories in the series can be read as a stand alone, I think I had much better grasp and understanding of all the characters as I read it in order.
I’m a sucker for a second chance romance tropes and this one was well told and I thought the characters were fun and entertaining. The chemistry between the leads was spot on.
I hope you read it. I know you’ll love it if you do!
