Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling series!
"Smart, sexy, and oh-so romantic." -Mary Balogh
For Miss Charlotte Windham, the best way to maintain her spinsterhood - and her independence - is a teeny, tiny brush with scandal. She chooses wealthy, handsome upstart Lucas Sherbourne as her unwitting accomplice. He's intelligent, logical, and ambitious. What Charlotte doesn't count on is that one kiss will lead them straight to the altar.
Sherbourne has no love for polite society, nor is he keen on being anybody's husband of last resort. He is attracted to Charlotte's boldness, though - and her family's influence. Without a title, he knows he'll never truly be part of their world, even as he and Charlotte inch closer to a marriage that means much more than convenience. But a scheming business partner is about to test that tenuous trust, forcing Sherbourne to make a drastic choice: his wealth or his wife.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Excellent wrap up of the Windhams

Poor Charlotte is getting all the family attention because she's the last to marry. And our Grace goes and pulls the antagonist from the last book and makes him believably sympathetic as a match for an understandably prickly heroine.

The marriage is a bit rushed, but needs to be for the struggles of this couple to mesh in a relationship are the perfect focus. Many of the issues resonate today. A woman who loves math and bookkeeping struggling to get her husband to let her look at the books of his business. A man used to being the wealthy provider running into business problems. (I'm glossing over the major themes as I don't want to give spoilers and those are only a couple of the problems this couple run up against.) As always, a lovely character study with believable antagonists.

If you haven't read a Burrowes, go ahead and grab this one. You can start anywhere and each book stands alone. But you won't want to miss a one once you start.

I want to take a moment to shout out to James Langton, the narrator for this series. I always forget he's reading, because he immerses me so deeply in the story and keeps each character clearly delineated. Yet the moment I hear his voice, I give a wriggle of pleasure knowing I'll be enjoying whatever story he's reading to me. (It doesn't hurt that Burrowes gives him such fabulous material to work with.)

He will forever be the voice of this series and I hope he does every Grace Burrowes book from now until one of them has to stop working.
