They couldn't be more different—but there's one thing they agree on . . . In London after a two-year exile, Lord Blakeney plans to cut a swathe through the bedchambers of the demimonde. Marriage is not on his agenda, especially to an annoying chit like Minerva Montrose, with her superior attitude and a tendency to get into trouble. And certainly the last man Minerva wants is Blake, a careless wastrel without a thought in his handsome head. The lights and din of her debutante ball set Minerva's teeth on edge. Surely a moment's rest could do no harm . . . until Blake mistakes her for another lady, leaving Minerva's guests to catch them in a very compromising position. To her horror, the scandal will force them to do the unthinkable: marry. Their mutual loathing blazes into unexpected passion but Blake remains distant, desperate to hide a shameful secret. Minerva's never been a woman to take things lying down, and she'll let nothing stop her from winning his trust . . . and his heart.

I have really enjoyed seeing the variety of sets of stories that have been put in place in this series.I found that the first half was alright, didn't exactly completely draw me into the story, but once I got ab...
Boring.The hero and heroine has zero chemistry. I could not connect with the heroine at alll. When she wasn't going off about how she wanted to be involved with politics and blah blah blah, she was snooping through her husband's things. When the hero wasn't bemoaning his dyslexia, he was going on ab...
I never warmed up to Blake, and I kind of wish he and Minerva had fought more.
Really, really annoying heroine - her sense of entitlement to her dream of becoming a "great political hostess" was completely over the top. Has anyone, anywhere, met a 19-year-old girl whose dream in life is to be a "political hostess" and power-behind-the-throne??? The villain in the story was not...
