Sophie and West, the Marquess of Weston were once a love match, but a threat from West’s father and a deadly accident led Sophie to make the heart-wrenching choice to marry another for the sake of her family and West’s own future. Years later, Sophie is now the widowed Lady Fitzwilliam and is relatively happy until she realizes her sister is delaying her own marriage out of fear that Sophie will be lonely. Sophie hatches a scheme in which the only person in the ton who can assist her, due to their history, is West. He’s kept a careful distance from Sophie since one dalliance led him to realize he’d never stop loving her. Playing her fake fiancé will allow him to dole out a bit of revenge on his father and give him time to convince Sophie that he only wants her.
VERDICT Waters’s “Regency Vows” series ends the way it started, with humorous escapades and passionate interludes. Readers can start with this title but will get a bigger payoff by beginning with To Have and To Hoax and tearing through the whole series.
