This is my first time reading anything by this author. I loved reading this book. I did not want to put it down. She started becoming one of my favorite authors, I have to read one or two to be sure. I can't wait to read Cecilia's others books. I highly recommend this book to others. ( )

Just simply way too short....left me wanting more.

I so wish the books in the Gentlemen Next Door Series were longer than 50-some pages. I love the writing, and the plot has to much potential, but due to the shortness seem to rush through. ( )

This is a delightful book that is the second in The Gentlemen Next Door series by Ms. Gray. Please be aware this review may contain spoilers.



This book is about Chastity who we briefly met in the first book, A Delightful Arrangement.

Chastity is determined to marry someone who will make sure that her father's shipping empire will succeed another generation. Chastity is determined that Mr. Highster is the man for the job. What Chastity does not realize is that Lucas, Lord Willoughby who is a Baron.

Lucas is also known as "Matchmaking Baron" since he has had 6 betrothed that married other men who came into lots of money. His last betrothed went to marry his older brother. So Lucas is a little mad about all of this.

Chastity has ask Lucas to pretend to be betrothed to her so she can get the attention of Mr. Highster. Chastity believes this is the only man who can save and restore her father's shipping empire.

As like in the first of this series the author did not use the correct wording for the period I have taken off one carrot for this. But this is still a wonderful book and a great read. The two books in this series can both be read in about an hour.

The bunnies and I give this book 4 Carrots. ( )

Lord Lucas Willoughby earned his moniker as the Matchmaking Baron after his six engagements ended with each lady happily wed-to someone else. He swears off marriage proposals, until his headstrong neighbor proposes something else entirely. Chastity Drummond has her sights set on a man who barely sees her as a woman, much less a potential wife. She can't seem to get him on bended knee, but knows an engagement to the Matchmaking Baron will turn his head. Lucas and Chastity's charade takes on a life of its own. As feigned attraction becomes real, they wonder if they might already be perfectly matched. Their illicit engagement will inevitably end in marriage-but to whom? * * * ABOUT THE GENTLEMEN NEXT DOOR SERIES The complete series of novellas is available now!

Book 1: Kiss Me After Book 2: Kiss Me Darkly Book 3: Kiss Me Sweetly Book 4: Kiss Me Softly Book 5: Kiss Me Again.… (more)
