Lady Alexandra Hobbs, the daughter of the Duke of Huntley, has intended to marry Lord Owen Monroe since she first glimpsed him from the window of her bedchamber, back when she was just a girl. But the duke has already chosen Alex’s infamously spoiled elder sister, Lavinia, for Owen. And now there’s no turning back.

Owen has spent most of his bachelor years drinking, gambling, and skirt-chasing. He won’t see another pound from his parents, however, until he’s engaged to Lavinia. Desperate, he accepts an offer from her innocent and spirited–and absolutely beautiful–sister Alex: She will
turn him into a perfectly tamed suitor, and show him how to woo the shrew. But when Alex’s true motives come to light, will their bargain lead to recriminations–or to a romance that defies everyone’s expectations? ” -Goodreads


I honestly can not get enough of this series! Valerie Bowman, please please please write faster! This was another book I could not physically put down until I finished it. While it was not my favorite of the series, it was still great! I can relate to our curvy female protagonist Alexandra, a younger sister and one who tries to be daring. She pairs perfectly with the secretly great human being, used to be rogue, Owen  who is, of course, beautiful (despite the fact I don’t prefer blondes). To those who have not read this series before, I definitely recommend it, it is full of energetic, sometimes mischievous women up to a lot of fun and adventure. To those who just come across this one, it would be perfectly fine and not confusing in the slightest to read it as a stand-alone.


I received this book from Netgalley for this honest review.
