Griffith, Duke of Riverton, likes order, logic, and control, so he naturally applies this rational approach to his search for a bride. While he’s certain Miss Frederica St. Claire is the perfect wife for him, she is strangely elusive, and he can’t seem to stop running into her stunningly beautiful cousin, Miss Isabella Breckenridge.
Isabella should be enjoying her society debut, but with her family in difficult circumstances, she has no choice but to agree to a bargain that puts her at odds with all her romantic hopes–as well as her conscience. And the more she comes to know Griffith, the more she regrets the unpleasant obligation that prevents her from any dream of a future with him.
As all Griffith’s and Isabella’s long-held expectations are shaken to the core, can they set aside their pride and fear long enough to claim a happily-ever-after?
My thoughts and review:
Kristi is a wonderful author. I have enjoyed this series so much and was very excited to finally read Griffith’s story. Griffith has been a strong character in all of the books, looking after others and doing what is best for his family.
The same is true in this book, but in this book we get to see a slightly softer side, but it doesn’t come easily. There are some situations in this book that even made me laugh out loud.
Isabella is a wonderful character as well. She is beautiful but not proud. She finds herself in a very tough situation that I was sure could only end in disaster. To see if I was right you will have to read the book. You won’t be sorry.
Visit Kristi here.
