Publisher's Summary

Lonesome Lily Turned Scandalous Siren
Miss Lillian Harwood has lived much of her life alone in a gilded cage, longing for love and companionship. When an artist offers her pretty promises and begs her to pose for a scandalous portrait, Lily doesn't hesitate...until the lying libertine leaves her in disgrace. With the painting now public, Lily has no choice but to turn to the one man who might save her from ruin.
Highland Devil Turned Halfhearted Duke
The duke of Warnick loathes all things English, none more so than the aristocracy. It does not matter that the imposing Scotsman has inherited one of the most venerable dukedoms in Britain - he wants nothing to do with it, especially when he discovers that the unwanted title comes with a troublesome ward, one who is far too old and far too beautiful to be his problem.
Tartan Comes to Town
Warnick arrives in London with a single goal: get the chit married and see her become someone else's problem, then return to a normal, quiet life in Scotland. It's the perfect plan until Lily declares she'll marry only for love...and the Scot finds that there is one thing in England he likes far too much.

Insipid, teen-age drama

Technically, the writing is good; grammar, syntax, all that is as it should be. The narrator does her normal good job, although for me, the pacing is a bit slow. Characters are well-delineated and elocution is good.

As to the plot -- to me, it is a teen girl's angst-y fantasy; the forgotten and ruined ward and the poor, misunderstood 'brute' of a Scotsman who 'save' each other. Not my thing, and I see no reason to put myself through another 9 plus hours of it.

Your mileage may vary, as always, and if you like woe-is-me drama with your romance, you might like this one. Thank heavens that people like different plots, and thank you to the authors who write them differently.

Very very good

Fabulous!!! I loved the Duke from the previous book and I've been waiting to read his story. It was well worth the wait.

Sarah is one of my automatic-order authors. She didn't disappoint with this one. The characters are well written and their dialogue is both witty and sincere. Alec and Lily are both flawed and that almost makes them made for each other. But they don't see it that way.

I love how characters from previous series make cameo appearances.

I want to see a picture of "the dress."

Narration was spot-on. A wonderful book that is making me want to re-read all of Sarah MacLean's books.
