Loved this one --- I don't always like her older ones as much but this one was good -- Interesting hero who while silent, you could still tell was enamoured with the heroine -- Of course a cad is involved as well, a brothers and a sister. Quite interesting - I'd recommend.

From Inside Cover: Miss Henrietta Tallant met the Duke of Eversleigh for the first time at a ball--when she tripped over her own feet in a waltz and stumbled over her own words in conversation. Then he appeared again--in her drawing room.

"Miss Tallant," he said, in a languid tone that belied his clear strength of person and authority of bearing, "I can see it is useless to try to make polite small talk with you. I shall get immediately to thepoint. Will you do me the honor of becoming my wife?"

Henry's jaw dropped. "Your wife?" she said faintly.

"I have taken you by surprise, I see," said the Duke. "Should I have paved the way more carefully by falling on my knees and declaring undying love and devotion? I can still do so if you wish."

Henry stood frozen. She had only to say yes to possess everything any young lady could want...any young lady but her.....

I loved this book. One of my Balogh favorites and goes in my "Do not depart with" file. I like how we can tell from the get go that the Duke is in love with Henry, even though he is a quiet man, and not overly demonstrative. He is always very gentle in his guiding of Henry. She is delightful, very likeable. Her extended family is quite a trip too, and I love how Everleigh takes it all in stride. Good Read.
