Publisher's Summary

Two possible futures loom before Miss Anne Davenport. The first option: sharing an unhappy home with her father and soon-to-be stepmother. The second: a life of independence at the Spinster House, if only her friend, Cat, would vacate the premises and marry the Duke of Hart. A well-placed whisper about the pair's secret tryst might speed the course of true love. But the duke's stubborn cousin poses an obstacle - a ridiculously handsome, very persuasive obstacle…
Nate, Marquess of Haywood, has spent his life looking out for the duke, hoping to stave off a family curse. The only way to keep his cousin alive is to keep him single. That means convincing the intriguing Miss Davenport that her lovely lips could be put to far better use than gossiping. Kissing, for instance. In fact Nate is beginning to hope that Miss Davenport's destiny lies not in the Spinster House at all but with him.
Contains mature themes.

Fun and sweet

It was a sweet story, and I like that the book begins in the in the first book in a way. The narrator is ok, not that i think se made a bad job, but the male voice is a bit arrogant, when i think It's ment he is sad, happy or nervuse. But overall like the book, and can't wait for the next one

Too Silly

I have enjoyed previous series by this author, but I'd recommend giving this trio a pass. The improbable and logically inconsistent premise of this and the previous book, dooms both. The impediments to the HEA are so artificial that there is no logical or organic way for the author to write past it. The characters simply must remain foolish until they aren't. I just wanted the story to be over.

The third book in the series may benefit from being free of the curse storyline. However, it will take time for readers/listeners to warm up to Jane, the probable heroine. She has been easily the least likeable supporting character.

On a side note, I love heat in my regencies, but these characters are ridiculously randy. The fact that the hero is instantly and constantly aroused, comes off as more strange than sexy.

Not worth a credit.
