This was my favorite book of the trilogy. Our couple's relationship was based on mutual respect, lust then love. He respected her mind and her body. She wanted to experience lust that turned into love. All the plot turns worked, this was an interesting romance. I listen to the other two through my romance package but I bought this one I'm glad I did.

She was too tool for his revenge. But he fell under her spell.

These two characters were well suited for each other. No other person would be better suited. She was smart, fearless, and willing to play a game to win the man she loved. He imagined himself evil, despicable, and he was, but he really couldn't be around her. Their banter was good, storyline never got boring, a good all-around fun read.

The second side romance of her friend was enjoyable though I could have gone with a bit more emphasis on that.

Protecting a steam engine from sabotage was the majority of the story. The romance was the minor component. A couple of kisses was all it took to solidify this couple.

Jo Beverley is a New York Times best-selling author whose lush romances have earned her a place in the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame. An Unwilling Bride traces an unlikely match between two headstrong people. In order to keep his vast estates in the family, the Duke of Belcraven must find a suitable bride for Lucien de Vaux, his only heir. But the woman he chooses for Lucien has plans of her own. It will take more than simple romance to turn this arrangement into a fairy tale wedding.

I loved the premise of the book. Hard working teacher picked to marry a duke's son because she was blood related to the duke and his son wasn't. I'd never come across this scenario.

I loved that duke's marriage was ice cold until she entered their family allowing the older couple to find each other again.

I loved that she was smart, articulate, and well educated. He was too.

I enjoyed the opening sections of this book UNTIL out of fear she impulsively lied to him causing mistrust and anger. It took a long time for them to make it to altar. It took a longer time for them to overcome her lie. When he hit her, that crossed a line for me. She recovered. I didn't.

Miss Minerva Lane is a quiet, bespectacled wallflower, and she wants to keep it that way. After all, the last time she was the center of attention, it ended badly - so badly that she changed her name to escape her scandalous past. Wallflowers may not be the prettiest of blooms, but at least they don't get trampled. So when a handsome duke comes to town, the last thing she wants is his attention.

I've enjoyed the Louisa character throughout this series of books. Her choice to care for and support others while putting her own needs second resonates. What this book explored included finding out who she was beyond the role of caregiver. That was satisfying. Narration was superb. The cast of characters that I've loved over the other books were all here with some great new additions.

Misunderstanding is the key to this story but not in a bad way. She thinks ill of him based on bad first impression. He finds her willingness to insert herself into others problems tiresome. And yet, they find each other in each other's company again and again. You can guess what happens next. This is an old school romance, cerebral not physical.

The premise of the book was good. She finds out her marriage is a sham. She begins a new life. She gets an inheritance. Her next door neighbor is an old childhood friend. They become best friends but hesitate to take it to the next level. This was a pleasant read. But it was all too easy. Her inheritance meant she never had to worry about money. Her neighbor had loved her since childhood. They became instant best friends and did everything together. There was no conflict. Her journey to finding herself was the best part.

He was a higher social rank than she. She didn't like him. He didn't like her. Then he liked her but she still didn't like him. He was too shielded and unemotional. She was free spirited but wasn't always appealing either. That was the majority of the book. When they came together it was good but it was too late to make this more than a decent read.

A much better read by this same author is "The Proposal" which has similar elements - one is of higher social rank than the other, one was guarded, and they don't like either other initially. But that all changes and their delightful courtship was the majority of the book.

This single gal has had enough of the games, the BS, and the endless chase. I know what I want most, and it's not true love. It's a bun in the oven, and I'm not afraid to hit up my sex-on-a-stick coworker to do the job. Ryder is gorgeous, witty, and wild - and he's also a notorious commitmentphobe. That makes him the perfect candidate to make a deposit in the bank of me. I won't fall for him, he won't fall for me, and there's no way baby will make three. Right?
