What a Lady Requires (The Eton Boys Trilogy, #3)

★★★★

23167197[1]by Ashlyn Macnamara 

 

Unlike every other proper young lady, Miss Emma Jennings views marrying well as little more than a means to an end. Such a merger would provide her industrious father with social credibility, and Emma with a chunk of her vast inheritance. Emma’s practical views are shattered, however, when her father ties her to the fabulously handsome ne’er-do-well Rowan Battencliffe, a man she loathes on sight—from the smile that promises all manner of wickedness to the way he ogles her with those striking blue eyes.

Deep in debt, especially to his wine merchant, Rowan figures the sooner he gets his finances in order, the sooner he can go back to doing what he does best: burning through ridiculous sums of cash. Which is why Rowan agrees to marry the merchant’s daughter, a prim and proper woman with delightful curves and an ample dowry. But Emma seems to think it’s her business to reform him! Their marriage is a tinderbox—and it’s just too tempting to resist playing with fire.

My review

Third book in the series, I wasn’t sure about actually wanting to read the book. I loved the first one and couldn’t warm up to the second one. The description of the hero in this book didn’t attract me, but I wanted to give the author a second chance based on my enjoyment of the first book. What can I say, the third book is as good as the first, maybe even better! I really enjoyed the story, the characters and the writing!  …
