Fans of Waters’s “Regency Vows” series will be thrilled to see oh-so-proper Emily, the third member of a trio of friends, come into her own and attain her much deserved happily-ever-after in this latest installment (following To Love and To Loathe). After six years on the marriage mart and being forced to court a seedy gambling den owner her father is indebted to, Lady Emily Turner sees no way out of her predicament, until Lord Julian Belfry suggests a marriage of convenience. He shocked the aristocracy by purchasing a theater and performing on the stage, but he is now determined to attract high-society crowds to his shows and make his disapproving father proud. Emily is to use her impeccable character to improve Julian’s standing and his theater’s reputation; in return, Julian will free her family from debt and blackmail. However, once they are married, not all goes according to plan; while dealing with unexpected events, they discover just how delightful and passionate a marriage of more than convenience can be.
VERDICT Waters stays true to the humor and wit that characterize the series’ first two installments.
