Lady Kate Cole is exceptionally talented, exceptionally beautiful and the darling of the ton. The only problem is that she is also exceptionally clumsy and so prone to accidents that many find it wise to stay as far away from her as possible.

But that doesn't include Andrew Hunter. The strong, rugged man is barely a gentleman but he can't help but be charmed by the delightful Kate. When he decides that she'd make the perfect wife his mind is made up. Only Kate won't settle for anything less than a love match and Hunter doesn't believe in love. Who will win in their battle of wills?

This is actually the fourth and last book in the Providence Series (after As Luck Would Have It, Tempting Fate and Mcalistair's Fortune) a fact I hadn't realised when I started to read this book. Characters from the previous books featured and while it whet my appetite to read the previous books in the series, there's no need to have read them in order to understand and enjoy this story.

And I really did enjoy it. Kate was a likeable character - pretty and sweet with enough oomph to make her someone we could really root for. As for Hunter - he's my favourite type of hero - a rugged, sexy man who is barely a gentleman and in need of the love of a good woman. Together the pair were funny, sweet and had great chemistry.

The plot was fairly calm, focusing more on the relationship between Kate and Hunter than anything more adventurous.

Wasn't sure of this book during the first few pages and even thought about not reading it. But I persevered and was glad I did. It turned out to be well written, funny and with a good plot. And, although I don't like to admit it, I did shed an emotional tear at the last two chapters.

Delightful, engaging characters, strong willed and determined, socially different but equally feisty and passionate.
He wants the heroine and trys to manipulate her to attain his goal, just as he's done to attain his fortune, but becomes caught in his own web.
The heroine dislikes the alpha attitude, the way he"looms", but is gradually won over, she falls in love with Hunter.
Lots of humorous dialogue between the main protagonists, plenty of attitude and angst, passion simmers and boils over, hearts are broken, but love conquers all.

The plotline is about spies and smuggling but, the story is really about romance and wooing a lady.

Loved it!

Interesting story, romance with a twist of intrigue , well written but what a pity it missed out the wedding. The ending in my opinion was a bit abrupt.

Very enjoyable and funny at certain parts. I like the cunning plots of the smuggling business. Also the loyalty of Lizzi.

All right but very trite in places and historically
not very accurate. Holiday read maybe. Predictable.
