In this second title in the "Duke's Daughters" series (after Lady Be Bad), Lady Olivia is set on marrying the man she loves and helping him with his good works. He also happens to be the lord her sister had rejected and whom her parents now want Olivia to marry. The problem is that Olivia might have been a little wrong when she assumed he loved her as much as she loved him. After he declines her overture, she vows to win his love and if she must transform his rakish friend Edward Wolcott into a gentleman to get her man, then she will. She will also try not to kiss Edward or fall in love with him in the process. Edward knows society will never accept him owing to his birth. However, his father wants him to marry well so that is what he plans to do. If Olivia can help him find a wife to make his father happy, he is fine with accepting her assistance. Especially if it allows him to be close to her, kiss her, and maybe fall in love with her.
VERDICT Readers will enjoy the chemistry between Olivia and Edward as well as the relationship Olivia has with her twin sister, Pearl. The interactions are fun and will keep readers entertained. A solid romance with steamy love scenes that is an enjoyable read.
