What lengths would a young lady go to in her pursuit of the perfect match? And how far would a gentleman go to stop her? Cassandra Effington is one of the most delicious debutantes to ever waltz across a London ballroom. But while her identical twin sister Delia is now wed, Cassandra is still unclaimed, and everyone agrees her standards are entirely too high. So how could she possibly lose a most unseemly wager with the handsome, scandalous Viscount Berkley? The proposition: She will find him an ideal bride well before he finds her the perfect match. But Lord Berkley intends to be very hard to please. He's already chosen the right woman, and no lady Cassandra puts forward to him will be perfect enough save the luscious Cassandra herself. And he'll do whatever it takes to make certain no gentleman he introduces her to is enticing enough, until she realizes that the perfect object in her pursuit of marriage is none other than the viscount himself.

Giving it 2, actually, 1.5 stars...What saved it from being rated 1 star... was its neatly wrapped up ending..It had a promising start....somewhat. But then the story dragged on after 60% of the plot...I mean, I've read better romance and believable stories in 150 or 400 pages...This one could easil...
It was good in the start but then the good points starting vanishing and well, it was okay in the end. But not my kind of book.
A delicious Regency read!! Engaging characters and an entertaining plot line. Nice amount of steam to keep the story popping!They really are quite a pair! Such an entertaining tale, much farce!I love a lively historical with all the pomp and circumstance! Really enjoyable read!A fun series.
