Now, with a large inheritance to his name, Harry knows that he'd best start running from London's matchmaking mothers and widows.

    Not Terrible, Just Trite

    I almost gave up on this book, but since I actually paid for it (ie not a credit) I felt bound to finish.

    It wasn't that the story was t..Show More »
