Good story - the duke was a little stuffy but overall a good story and nice romance. ( )

Like the others in this series...eh. The lust level is a bit too high here for my taste, and the other main trope is misunderstanding (and low self-esteem), which annoys me. It's nice to see Neville grown up a bit, from the petulant idiot he was in The Marquess. Fiona hasn't changed much from The English Heiress at the beginning of the book, but she grows up quite a bit (as does Neville, he does change and develop) over the course of the book. The villains are pretty ineffectual and quite stupid in their plotting - Sean does Neville more damage than they manage, entirely by accident. Legislative maneuvering is a major portion of the story, which may be why there's quite so much sword- and cudgel-play - trying to balance things out. Didn't work for me, they were both rather dull. I rather liked when Neville couldn't talk and they were managing the kids. But the scene at the end of the book where they exchange a look and both perfectly understand one another...especially between these two and all the misunderstandings they'd been through, it didn't ring true. It wasn't terrible, but I think this is my least favorite of the series (which isn't much of a favorite overall, either). I see no reason to reread this. ( )

This is about a Romance is a different light. It about a woman. It somewhat an adventure then a romance. There a lot going on in the book. There some drama and some really action though out the book. It a book in a series and this this the first one i read. ( )

This was a fairly average story -- nothing really outstanding about it. There were so many extra characters that didn't really seem to add that much to the story, it was hard to keep track of them all. I never felt there was actual love between the two main characters, just lust. Everyone knows that doesn't make for a lasting relationship, then or now.

Not an awful story, but not outstanding, either. ( )

A most enjoyable story. This takes a little twist in that both the hero and heroine are penniless. He falls in love with the penniless Irish girl from his childhood even though he needs an heiress. She fights her attraction to him with all her might, but eventually love conquers all. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Neville Perceval, the bankrupt Duke of Anglesey, has been burdened since youth with more responsibility than one man should handle. He has finally accepted that he needs to marry a wealthy, gracious lady who will ease his burdens and smooth his political path. Fiona MacDermot, the rebellious, untamed cousin of an Irish earl, has the freedom and independence Neville has never known. Like the duke, she needs cash to help starving villagers and orphans. Unfortunately, she'd rather earn a living than have anything to do with useless men, and the politicians she knows all belong at the wrong end of a rope. But when the duke is nearly beaten to death, and Fiona's looms are lost to a murdering thief, their lives are entangled in ways that threaten their futures. Lust shouldn't factor into their destinies, but it does, and now they have to find their dreams together, or die trying.… (more)
