It's a wonderful addition to the set and I love the way the characters in all three books are connected.
This is the story of Lady Margaret Ponsby, the daughter of an Earl. She's a shy young woman who has resigned herself to being a spinster after not being offered for after a few seasons since her 'coming out' into society.
It is also the story of the Earl of Finchley. He is what is known as a Rake, caring only about having fun with his friends and enjoying gambling, women, and wholly enveloping his freedom. The last thing he wants is to be married. His grandmother is most put out that he isn't ready to settle down and show some maturity, and when he goes to her for the umpteenth loan to pay some debts, for the first time ever she refuses him. She wants to see some sign of him changing his ways before she will be willing to give him more money to squander away.
Finch decides that the only way to prove that to his grandmother is to arrange a marriage in name only, but to keep that last fact a secret. A series of coincidences finds the Earl wedding the lovely Margaret Ponsby. From there in the book we find out if their marriage of convenience could possibly turn into a love match. Will the Earl realise that there is more to life than being a 'Rake', and will Lady Margaret finally find love with the man she has adored from afar for a very long time?
I really enjoyed reading this book. There were some fun light moments amongst some quite deep ones, and overall of course was the desire to carry on reading to find out if Finch finally comes to his senses and when that defining moment will be. Cheryl Bolen is the Queen of 'marriage of convenience' novels which makes every one a real delight to read. I fully recommend this book and indeed all of this author's books.
Margaret is a very shy young woman. Her and her sister might look almost the same, but their characters are very different.
Margaret has always admired the young man who visits his grandmother in the house opposite, but everyone call him a wastrel, she would never be permitted to even speak to him.
Will she ever be bold enough to reach for what she wants?
Will John's plan backfire on him? Or will his grandmother get exactly what she wanted.
This is a lovely romance. No sex scenes, but very romantic. Our poor John tries so hard not to grow up. But a sense of honour and a conscience work against him. Our heroine is just about the most patient woman on the planet. Or just plain determined.
but the story does develop well and ends very satisfactorily
