Catherine Evans knows the Earl of Kerrick is the one man for her. During her first season, she hopes he will come to feel the same way about her.
Kerrick has tried to see his best friend’s sister-in-law as a younger sister. But just when he realizes his feelings for her go much deeper than friendship, duty compels him to court another woman.
It is supposed to be a brief courtship in name only, but outside forces seem determined to see Kerrick married to that other woman and to keep him and Catherine apart.
When I first got the book, I started reading straight away. After about 17%, I was not sure about the book so far… Both h and H are likeable, but I had to force myself to keep on reading… I thought: “Maybe I have a case of regency fatigue… I will put it down and try again in a few weeks..” Unfortunately, my second try was not better, I just can’t get myself to stay interested in the book for more than a few paragraphs at a time. The book is the second book in the series, so maybe the book is more attractive for people who have read the first one.
