Lady Hope Post has suffered the most rotten luck over the last year. She’s lost the love of her life. Her great-uncle and Machiavellian matchmaker the Duke of Danby has a special license just waiting for her somewhere. And after one tiny little phaeton accident in the park, the most devilish earl attempts to blackmail her over the incident.
Thaddeus Baxter, the Earl of Kilworth has every intention of restoring luster to the earldom he’s inherited from his ne’er-do-well cousin, but when an adventurous lady upends his phaeton in the park, all of Thad’s perfectly respectable plans are tossed out the window. What are the odds he’d cross paths with the same girl who’d nearly brought down his cousin’s earldom in the first place? And what are the odds he’d lose his heart to her as well?
This one was at the top of my TBR list and it didn’t disappoint! That tiny little accident set off a chain of events that changed their thoughts about each other. I loved everything about it from beginning to end especially when they realized they loved each other and the scenes with the Duke.
Hope is an adventures girl that has broken my heart since she lost her love. The sparkle left her eyes and she has changed to a sad quite girl and says she doesn’t care about her future. That all changed when she met Thad. I loved how adventures she is and that when she loves someone she will do anything to save them.
Thad is the opposite of his late cousin, but there is still some adventure in him. He comes off a bit uptight at first, but really isn’t. I loved how he called her a menace but found himself drawn to her and then protecting her before realizing why.
The wedding is one of the best ones!
