From What is a young Worthington woman to do when the man of her dreams is not who she thinks he is?

This season, all eyes are on the Earl of Worthington’s spirited, beautiful sister, Lady Louisa Vivers. Many gentlemen are vying for her attention in and around the ton. Yet, Louisa longs for someone who can take her beyond the ballroom—a man who is worldly, adventurous, and passionate. She won’t settle for just any suitor. She wants her true soul mate—and she’ll know him when she sees him.

Is Gideon, the Duke of Rothwell, him? The moment he and Louisa meet, they share a powerful attraction. Rides at sunrise and waltzes at dusk follow. Finally, Gideon can no longer resist the urge to embrace her, and Louisa is sure he will ask for her hand. But Gideon believes he is in no position to marry. The Rothwell estate has gone bankrupt, a scandal simmers in its wake, and he has nothing left to offer. Now, he must decide if he will let pride stand in the way of true love—or if he will risk everything, and let the lady decide for herself…


My Rating: 4 stars out of 5

This was a charming read! I have loved the Worthington family since the first book featuring them, and I am pleased to say that these books just keep getting better and better! If you haven't yet been introduced to this family, you needn't worry, this story can be read as a stand alone. You do not need to have read the others in order to enjoy this one. I found Louisa to be a very strong-willed character who knows her own mind and heart very well, which made her one of the most endearing characters I have read about in awhile. 

I loved the build-up within this story. From Gideon and Louisa trying to ignore their feelings for one another, to the scandal that is lurking just beyond the shadows, everything was perfectly blended into a truly enthralling story that builds up to a very pleasing conclusion. 

Overall, I am sure this story will still appeal to those who enjoy a well written historical romance.
