In the battle between love and duty, the heart has the most to lose…
Despite his previous irksomeness, Lord Julian Wade has become a dear confidant to Portia Hayes. He’s proven attentive, honorable, clever, and would make many a lady a fine catch. Not herself, alas. Wade has naught but lint in his pockets, and Portia is expected to make an advantageous match. Her recent betrothal to the Duke of Montrose thrills her parents, but as she learns of his unfavorable reputation—and equally untenable behavior—Portia’s happiness is less assured. As is her chance of being loved.
Julian Wade may have lost the battle for Portia’s hand, but her heart has yet to be won. Certainly his old enemy Montrose is unworthy of her affections, and indeed, it seems the dastardly duke is up to his usual unsavory tricks. But Julian has a few tricks of his own, as well as the support of dear friends. Penniless though he may be, should he win Portia’s love once and for all, Julian may yet prove to be the richest gentleman about Town.
Despite his previous irksomeness, Lord Julian Wade has become a dear confidant to Portia Hayes. He’s proven attentive, honorable, clever, and would make many a lady a fine catch except his pockets are to let.
Julian is frankly BROKE! He needs an heiress but will not marry Portia simply for her money because with all else said he is in love with her.
Will Portia realize before it’s too late that Julian is the man for her and despite her parent’s insistence that she marry a man with a loftier title that she prefers love over the title of Duchess.
There was one thing that bothered me about this book and that was the Duke being referred to as My Lord instead of His Grace. That being said it is an engrossing title that I finished in one sitting only taking the usual BR or snack breaks.
I gave this mostly sweet (only one heated scene) book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization. All of the characters except the Duke of Montrose, are endearing. I look forward to Lavinia getting her own story. It looks like that may be with Sullivan but we can’t be certain of that.
When the author read this in my review (There was one thing that bothered me about this book and that was the Duke being referred to as My Lord instead of His Grace.) she responded: “Fixing that mistake right now. Thanks for the warning.”
It does help the author sometimes to get an advance review!
