    Only desperation could bring Duncan Pennethorne, the infamous Earl of Sheringford, back home after the spectacular scandal that had shocked even the jaded ton. Forced to wed in 15 days or be cut off without a penny, Duncan chooses the one woman in London in frantic need of a husband. A lie to an old flame forces Margaret Huxtable to accept the irresistible stranger's offer. But once she discovers who he really is, it's too late - she's already betrothed to the wickedly sensual rakehell.

    Overall

    The first 2 books of the series dealt with the stories of the 2 Huxtable sisters: Katherine and Vanessa. We've also been introduced to the eldest sister Margaret (Meg) who sacrificed her happiness to fulfill a promise she made on her father's deathbed when she was only 17 years old to raise her brother and sisters until they reached maturity. As a result, she tells her sweetheart at the time, Crispin Dew, that she will wait for him to return to her when he finishes his military service, only to find out accidentally that he married someone else and did not even bother to inform her himself. Book 3 is Meg's story and I am delighted to say (after giving 3 stars to the last book) that it has been the best one in the series so far. Duncan was a great match for the self sacrificing, compassionate, honorable and level headed Meg. He was also a cynic who no longer believed in love but was seeking to marry out of necessity. Their first exchange is one of the highlights of the book and carries Mrs Balogh's traditional signature humor and sarcasm. The main theme of their story was trust and being faithful to one's conscience in my opinion. This book featured what I have always expected of Mrs Balogh: humor, exquisite dialogue, sarcasm and lots of heart. The 2 villains were somewhat one dimensional, but the secondary characters (grandfather, Duncan's mom, Sir Ingraham and Tobby) were very likeable and had a lot of depth to them. Stephen has also matured in this book and we are obviously being prepped for his upcoming story. Yet, I cannot wait for Constantine's book because he is the most complex character in the series. If you are reading Mrs Balogh, please give us Con's story. To audible listeners, download this book and enjoy. You won't be disappointed.
