Lady Victoria Lennox longs for romance and marriage. But such dreams may come to nothing when her sharp-spoken older sister, Amelia, sends away every potential suitor. Desperate to hear wedding bells, Victoria hatches a scheme, a scandal that will ensure a husband for Amelia and clear Victoria's path to the altar. However, Victoria makes her first mistake when she ropes the devilishly charming Lord Julius Cavendish into her plot…and her second when she surrenders to his passionate kisses.
Julius feigns interest in Amelia, yet he yearns for petite, spirited Victoria. Meanwhile, his friend Lord Withington agrees to act as Victoria's decoy suitor, distracting Amelia from the very real courtship happening under her nose. But when Withington sees how tender and protective Amelia is beneath her frosty facade, he is immediately smitten. All four soon find themselves publicly attached…to the wrong person. Now, making the right match means untangling a web of secret desires and risking everything for love.

An absolutely wonderful book!!
I am amazed at the Amazon ratings for this book. Since there were no audible reviews I decided to chance getting the book. Now I wonder if they read the same book as I did. The plot does sound silly initially but the logic makes more sense later on. I never found it complicated to follow. It was a short book but there was never a dull moment and the passionate scenes were certainly erotic though not bold. If you like historical romance, this book is a must!

Interesting story with plenty of plot twists
This was a fairly interesting story, though I felt the characters could have been a bit more developed. I didn’t feel like I got to know them very well through all the antics that ensued.
The plot is loosely based on The Taming of the Shrew, and becomes quite complicated. I grew a bit tired of all the plot twists, and didn’t find myself caring all that much about any of the characters. The only one who I really had any sympathy for was Lord Withington, who was drawn into Victoria’s scheme against his better judgement and ended up getting deeper and deeper entrenched.
I have read other stories by this author and, though this isn’t one of my favorites of hers, it is still a worthwhile read.
The narration was well done and added depth to the story.
