Publisher's Summary

A fake engagement and plenty of charm keep listeners entranced in this delightful Regency romance, which the USA Today best-selling author Julia Quinn hails as "terrific".

"I have come to ask you to kill me, my lord."

Miss Abigail Abbott desperately needs to disappear - permanently - and the only person she trusts to help her do that is Lord Stephen Wentworth, heir to the Duke of Walden. Stephen is brilliant, charming, and - when he needs to be - absolutely ruthless. So ruthless that he proposes marriage instead of "murder" to keep Abigail safe.

Stephen was smitten the instant his sister introduced him to Abigail, a woman with the dignity and determination of a duchess and the courage of a lioness. When she accepts his courtship of convenience, he also discovers she kisses like his most intimate wish come true. For Abigail, their arrangement is a sham to escape her dangerous enemies. For Stephen, it's his one chance to share a lifetime with the lady of his dreams - if only he can convince her his love is real.

Best of the series

This was an awesome story. Grace Burrowes out-did herself. Throughout this series, Stephen was my favorite. Yes, he was a pain in everyone's backside, but he was interesting, complicated and complex. In this book, it's obvious he's finally grown up to become his own man. His "duchess" is the perfect foil and is as intelligent and complicated as Stephen. The end of this story is the perfect ending....and oh so creative. Thanks to Grace and James Langton for a great product.

Liked most of it

This wasn't the strongest story in the series in my opinion. I loved brother Stephen in all the other books, and was really looking forward to his tale. I enjoyed where it deepened our understanding of the character. I was a little disappointed that nothing was offered as a solution to his physical pain - I'd hoped they'd discover acupuncture or deep massage to help ease his suffering. Also he makes such a big deal about not wanting to be the duke and not wanting to have children for years then blink, he's fine with it. I think my overall lackluster response to this book was that once again it takes two fiery tigers and, for no apparent reason, turns them into domesticated kittens. I liked both characters better in earlier books when they had more strum and drang. Once they got together it was underwhelming. Not bad by any means, just not terrific.

Love, honor. And fun

Enjoyed the characters and dialogue in this entertaining book. Perhaps a little too descriptive with bedroom scenes but sharing their emotional connection made me smile. The parenting section references was somewhat complicated. Always enjoy this author’s stories.
