Summary

The proud and arrogant duke of Everingham is determined to secure a marriage of convenience with heiress Lady Georgiana Rutherford. He's the biggest prize on the London marriage mart, pursued by young unmarried ladies and their matchmaking mamas, as well as married women with a wandering eye. He can have any woman he wants. Or so he thinks....

Lady Georgiana Rutherford - irreverent and unconventional - has no plans to marry. Having grown up poor, Lady George has no intention of giving up her fortune to become dependent on the dubious and unreliable goodwill of a man. Especially a man as insufferable as the duke of Everingham, whose kisses stirs unwelcome and unsettling emotions....

The more she defies him, the more the duke wants her, until an argument at a ball spirals into a passionate embrace. Caught in a compromising position, the duke announces their betrothal. George is furious, and when gossip claims she deliberately entrapped the duke - when she was the one who was trapped - she marches down the aisle in a scarlet wedding dress. But the unlikely bride and groom may have found love in the most improbable of places - a marriage of convenience.

Contains mature themes.

Totally disappointing.

The heroine has been built up over a series of books as independent and strong. I was looking forward to her story. Then suddenly she becomes a totally wimp and doormat.
I hate it when this happens, just to fit the story the author ruines a good character and matches her with a personality she wouldn't touch with a barge pole, let alone become his doormat. I couldn't finish the story as it so totally wanted to make me scream. They say the last in the series, is always a disappointment as the author is just wanting to finish. This proves the idea, don't waste your money

A good mix of romance, humour,tension and passion

A good tale of loneliness , where the heroine and hero surprise themselves by loving each other in what was expected to be a marriage of convenience

Loved the story!

I really enjoyed this book. Kept my interest the entire way with surprising twists and turns. George was an admirable character who most women would love to emulate. The Duke was also wonderful especially learning who he really was in his heart and not someone everyone saw him as. I highly recommend this romance story. The narrator was also excellent and convincing as the many characters she played out were all unique and easily pictured in my mind.

Fun read

I was excited to read George’s story. It was modeled quite a bit on pride and prejudice but no complaints here. I really enjoyed it. Was worth a credit to me. Last one in series so a little sad to get to the end too. Cool, cold hero and wild wonderful heroine. His conversion was a little quick near the end but it was all great fun.

This Story Will Make You Smile

I was a little unsure of the direction the story was going after that spectacular dress George wore for her wedding with Everingham. There had to be a conflict so enter the ward, a look a like, a potential kidnapping, fear of a drowning in the lake...Now the real conflict when the duke plans to go back to London If only they would say how they feel.LOVE.

So much Fun!! A Duke and an Independent Lady

I love the Rutherfords!! The whole series was delicious and each book had its own unique H/h.
George (Lady Georgiana) is a fun character whose life has been very interesting. When the Duke of Everingham (Rose's jilted husband to be from the previous book) turns his sites on George, sparks of all kinds start flying. I really enjoyed the how each puzzled out the other.
I don't do spoilers, however, you will not be disappointed with the story and romance.
The narrator, Alison Larkin, was perfected for this novel. She did a great job with the various character voices. The narrator for the first book in the series was someone else, don't remember who. Thank goodness Ms. Larkin was the narrator for the remaining books in the series.
Had fun and I definitely will be listening to this story again!!

joyous!!

I really enjoyed the series and this was my favourite as I thought George was a wonderful young lady. I just wish they had used this narrator for book one. she made this series very special. I loved her voice.
