    At four in the morning, the night of his 25th birthday, Baron Montford finds himself quite sauced with a large group of gentlemen in his library. Spurred on by revelry, pride, and drink, Montford takes on a wager he'll soon regret: to successfully seduce the virtuous Katherine Huxtable within the coming fortnight.

    Overall

    It pains me to write this review about an author I have the deepest respect for. This is definitely Balgh's weakest book in my opinion and I am quite disappointed with it. When introduced in book 1, Katherine seemed quite different from her character in book 2. The scene in Vauxhall gardens with Baron Montford was too unrealistic and absolutely out of character between her and a man she knew to be a "rake" of the 1st order. The pace of the story was too slow and the plot failed to draw me in. I felt that it was contrived and forced. There were no sparks between these two and I frankly could not care what happened to them. There was none of the sexually tensed banter, no moment that tugged at one's heart and no strong/proud heroine that came remotely close to the Ms Martin school's heroines of the Simply series. I gave all the simply series books 5 stars and expected the same quality of work from this author. I'm glad this is not my first listen/read for Mrs Balogh and I hope that book 3 (Meg's story) will be much better, otherwise it will be to this reader's great loss as Mrs Balogh is usually a top notch writer and this one fell short in my humble opinion.
