With a crumbling estate and a dwindling fortune as his inheritance, Lord Elliot Havenford, Baron Ralston, is in dire need of funds. He intends to marry a rich heiress, quickly—preferably his cousin’s lovely friend Nina Trent. Elliot has always been intrigued by Nina, who’s intelligent, beautiful, and an accomplished artist. Nina, meanwhile, is pressured by her family to marry the wealthy Duke of Fernbridge, who is at best a safe choice after her recent disastrous engagement. Elliot knows the duke is far too dull for Nina, so he comes up with a scheme to win her hand secretly: he’ll pretend to court her to attract the attention of the notoriously competitive duke. The plan backfires when the duke actually pursues Nina, even though she’s now attached to the passionate, lively Elliot.
VERDICT Miller (Never Kiss a Notorious Marquess) continues her “Infamous Lords” series with a charming entry featuring a surprisingly sweet hero engaging in a romantic rivalry to win a most worthy heroine.
