Summary

Never trust a gentleman....

Once before, Lady Alice Winterbourne trusted her heart to an honorable, respectable man... only to be jilted in the scandal of the season. Longing for an escape from all the whispers and humiliation, Alice eagerly accepts an invitation to her friend’s house party. In the country, she hopes to find some peace from the embarrassment left in London.... Unfortunately, she finds her former betrothed and his new bride in attendance.

Never love a lady....

Lord Rhys Brookfield has no interest in marriage. Ever. He’s worked quite hard at building both his fortune and his reputation as a rogue - and intends to enjoy all that they can offer him. That is if his matchmaking mother will stop pairing him with prospective brides. When Rhys and Alice meet, sparks flare. But with every new encounter, their first impressions of one another are challenged, and an unlikely friendship is forged.

Desperate, Rhys proposes a pretend courtship, one meant to spite Alice’s former betrothed and prevent any matchmaking attempts toward Rhys. What neither expects is that a pretense can become so much more. Or that a burning passion can heal... and hurt.

excellent short story of unrequited love

it was a good book that fed my hunger for fictional regency, even as my study of history draws to a close.

Mixed feelings

At times I really enjoyed this book and at others I felt like something was missing. The book ended with me feeling cheated. I was expecting more. Especially from this author. I’m torn asking for my credit back or listening again to see if I somehow missed a whole lot of the story! Narration was good though.
