Publisher's Summary

The Somerset sisters, three beautiful, headstrong debutantes in Regency London, are discovering that a bit of scandal is a delightful thing....

For the sake of propriety, and her younger sisters' reputations, Iris Somerset has kept her rebellious streak locked away. But though she receives a proposal from Phineas Knight, Lord of Huntington, Iris can't marry a man she knows isn't truly enamored with her. In fact, Iris no longer wants to be chosen - she wants to choose. Under the clandestine tutelage of "wicked widow" Lady Annabel Tallant, she'll learn how to steer her own marriage prospects - and discover her secret appetites.

What kind of debutante refuses a marquess? Finn is surprised, a little chastened - and thoroughly intrigued. This new, independent version of Iris is far more alluring than the polished socialite she used to be. Finn believed he needed a safe, quiet wife to curb his wilder impulses. But the more Iris surprises him, the more impossible it becomes to resist their deepest desires....

Contains mature themes.

Excellent story!

This story will keep your attention from beginning to end. The narrator, Heather Wilds knows how to tell a story with multiple characters. The writer teaches all to love people for who they are.....big 5 Stars ⭐️

Rollicking regency

This recency romance had a certain charm that was almost lost in the telling. The narrator's deadpan delivery was soooo distracting I almost gave up in the first ten minutes. (Sorry to see that the others in this series have the same narrator.) But I soldiered on and this undemanding story turned out to be the perfect companion for a rainy weekend.

Really enjoyable.

Characters were good. Love a strong man who will love his woman but still learn. Both admitted their mistakes and came together.

Good, mostly

The story line was a good one: "proper" marquess choosing a "proper" debutante to be his marchioness, without really caring who she is except that she has the right bloodlines and behaves properly. Both of them are more than they present to the world, and when the heroin finds out more about her betrothed, she finds she can't go through with it. Despite being jilted, twice, the marquess still intends to marry the heroin, even more once he really gets to know her. But, there was WAY too much inner dialogue that made the story a bit too long. And the narrator, Heather Wilds, was ok, but could have been better in differentiating the character voices and she was a little slow in the narration.

Awesome

Love the work of this lady! She weaves in and out and keeps you guessing if the couple will ever actually an up together!
