OrangeReviewStarLord Graelem Dayne arrives in London determined to find a bride by Midsummer's Night ensure that his inheritance does not pass to his no-good cousin. He is almost to his grandmother Eloise's house, when—BAM!—he is overrun by Brutus, Laurel Farthingale's boisterous and unruly horse. The black nightmare leaves Graelem with a broken leg, and the entire Farthingale clan clamoring over him. Capturing his attention is Laurel herself—beautiful, remorseful, but also brave and defiant. His broken leg means no balls and soirees for him, and in his haze of pain and lust, he traps Laurel in a marriage vow. She can rescue him from disinheritance—her beauty and brains are a bonus. But this is a Farthingale sister—only true love will do. Fighting attraction, and sizzling up the pages, Laurel and Graelem must fight to be together—or lose true love in the process.
VERDICT Platt (Rules for Reforming a Rake) has created an out-of-order sort of series revolving around the Farthingale daughters: Lily, Dillie, Daisy, Rose, and our heroine, Laurel. Set in the Mayfair District of London in the early 1800s, this historical series follows the lively sisters who refuse to be bound to husbands who don't love them. This latest installment has the elements that fans have come to cherish: passion, love, a bit of joviality, and a lot of steamy kisses! A return trip to visit the Farthingale clan is always a welcome treat full of interesting surprises.
