Viscount Hart Highgate has decided to put his rakish ways behind him and finally get married. He may adore a good brandy or a high-speed carriage race, but he takes his duties as heir to the earldom seriously. Now all he has to do is find the right kind of woman to be his bride—ideally, one who’s also well-connected and well-funded. . .
Meg Timmons has loved Hart, the brother of her best friend, ever since she was an awkward, blushing schoolgirl. If only she had a large dowry—or anything to her name at all. Instead, she’s from a family that’s been locked in a bitter feud with Hart’s for years. And now she’s approaching her third London season, Meg’s chances with him are slim to none. Unless a surprise encounter on a deep, dark night could be enough to spark a rebellious romance. . .for all time?
As always I would like to first thank Netgalley and St. Martin’s Press for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.
Man did Meg’s past hurt me. The wasn’t the woman that Hart’s father wanted for him. And it isn’t who Hart wanted at first either. But slowly he starts to realize that she is exactly the woman that he needed in his life. She has been through much, seen a lot of things that no one at her age should have needed to see. Hart needed learn humility and was shown how much his life was easy, while it wasn’t for others. There was a moment that I was so sad for Meg and Hart, things that happen are misinterpreted so badly they almost lost the chance for love and happiness.
