Wealthy Willa Reverly had hoped to marry for love, but when Matthew Addison, the newly minted but woefully impoverished Duke of Camberly, offers for her, her father gives her no choice but to accept. Despite her unsuccessful attempt to jilt Matt, Willa marries him and hopes for the best, never thinking she'll be drawn into the web of a vicious blackmailer who bankrupted Matt's family and whom Matt is now determined to unmask.
VERDICT With quick-witted plotting, delicious chemistry, sparkling wit, and a serious dollop of danger, Maxwell delivers another Regency gem and gives the third of her spinster heiress heroines a husband who is definitely worth loving. Maxwell (If Ever I Should Love You; A Match Made in Bed) lives in Buda, TX.
