Desperately seeking a husband....
Suzette is not like other heiresses; she wants a poor husband, a gentleman who will be so grateful for her dowry that he will allow her access to it so that she can pay off her father's gambling debts. When this alluring beauty encounters Daniel Woodrow - handsome, titled, single, and even more impoverished than she could have hoped for - it seems Suzette's wildest dreams have come true.
But Daniel has not been truthful. Tired of being accosted by an endless stream of vapid coquettes and their fortune-hunting mothers, Daniel has decided to plead poverty to stop them in their tracks. Yet here is a most refreshing and delectable lady, who claims to be thrilled by his penury. Now all Daniel has to do to find true happiness is to keep a little white lie alive... while avoiding a villain who's determined to prevent this union by any means necessary.

The whole first half of the book was just the last book in a different point of view. I assumed we'd be following different characters where the last book ended. I was pretty disappointed. The book got good when it picked up to a part that wasn't rehashed. I bought the 3 books for 2 credits so I'm really hoping the third is better.
Over half the book was what went on the the first book of the series, I really got bored. I doubt I'll purchase the third.
I wish I could add to my comments of the first books I read. Did'nt realize how important It would be now. Did'nt really know how to review
If you have read The Countess by Lynsay Sands don't waste a credit for this book. It is just about the same book except this is the sisters view of the same story. It was a good story, but again I felt like I had wasted a credit. If you have not read The Countess then I would recommend this book. I did read both and I must say I liked The Countess the best out of the two books.
Liked the story, tho i did get the Countess first (got intrigued and wanted to listed the story told from the other side in a way) and most of the half was just listening to the summary of the first book, but still liked the way the story is written, with the hint of humor, although, feels, there could have been more to Daniel's and Suzette's side of the story
This is supposed to be part of a "series", but it literally takes huge parts of the first book "The Countess". Save your credits. The first book was good, though.
