Ever since "The Duel" sent her cousin Daniel fleeing to France, Lady Sarah Pleinsworth has absolutely loathed Lord Hugh Prentice; after all, it was his fault that she couldn't make her come out on time and lost her chance at marrying any of the 14 men who became engaged that dismal season. Of course, Hugh doesn't think much of Sarah, either, especially since their first disastrous meeting. So when they find themselves at a wedding and are forced to spend time together (and behave) as a favor to the bride, they anticipate being vexed—a lot. They never imagine what will happen.
VERDICT A fiercely outspoken heroine and a mathematically brilliant hero whose eidetic memory is both a blessing and a curse clash splendidly in an unstoppable romp that sparkles with enough hilarious situations, over-the-top characters, and laugh-out-loud dialog to keep the chuckles coming long after the book is closed. A lovely tale that is just plain fun! Quinn (The Bridgertons: Happily Ever After) lives in the Pacific Northwest.
