In New York Times best-selling author Cathy Maxwell's glittering new series, wedding bells are ringing...until the return of a rake throws a bride's plans - and heart - into a tailspin.
Every debutante aspires to snag a duke. Elin Morris just happens to have had one reserved since birth. But postponements of her marriage to London's most powerful peer give Elin time to wonder how she will marry Gavin Baynton when she cannot forget his brother, Benedict.
Already exasperated at being yanked from the military to meet "family obligations", now Ben must suffer watching his arrogant sibling squire the only woman he has ever loved. Joining the army saved Ben from sinking into bitterness, but seeing Elin again takes him back to the day they surrendered to their intoxicating desire.
As the wedding draws near, Elin tries to push Ben far from her thoughts. When danger brings them together, there is no denying their feelings. But can Elin choose love over duty?

I always enjoy a Cathy Maxwell book. This one didn't disappoint. I smiled and giggled a several times like I always do. I've given it a 4 star rating due to the inconsistency in the narration. For example, the heroine started with a bit of a Scottish accent, but didn't end with one. Her voice is very pleasant nevertheless. I can't wait to listen to the Duke's story, whose only requirement in a wife is that she be "kissable"!!!

The story is delightful! The conflicts makes it a page turner and I loved every minute I spent with the characters! Bravo!
