Hell, hath no fury like a woman scorned. Good thing he likes a challenge.
Rose Allen was supposed to be duchess when next she came to London. Instead, she was thrown over in favor of her sister. Now, no respectable gentleman, let alone a man of title, will have anything to do with her—except a fortune hunter desperate for her large dowry.
Not only had Lord Oliver Brandon just lost his father, but he had discovered the family coffers are empty. If he is to save his family from total ruin, he needs to find a solution and fast. When approached with an offer for a marriage that includes a handsome dowry, he doesn’t know whether to thank his good fortune or curse his bad luck—because the match also comes with a discontented wife.
In choosing a marriage of convenience, Rose and Oliver may forfeit their pride, but what of their hearts?
Rose Allen was pretty horrible in the first book An American In Duke’s Clothing when her sister and the Duke fell in love. I liked the struggle in this book of watching her try to grow to be a better person. She was the one having a hard time forgiving herself, and because of that she doubted everyone.
There were some really sweet little moments between Rose and Oliver, and the meaning of the flowers Oliver gave her was interesting.
I suggest reading An American In Duke’s Clothing first. Not only is it one of my favorite books, but you will get Rose’s full backstory and be better able to appreciate her growth.
