I enjoyed this book, the main & supporting characters were well written. The story took some twists & turns, sometimes not quite believable. However, that is the point of fiction, I like my drama between the pages.
Lorraine Heath is an excellent novelist. Her stories bring the characters to life and you want the novels to go on and on! All the elements are present - humor, emotionally tinged reads have you lauging one minute and crying the next!
Lydia Westland was ecstatic to finally be visiting England. She heard so many stories about her stepfather's homeland growing up. Now she wants to marry a titled gentleman and live in polite society. When she is introduced to her stepfather's half-brother, Rhys Rhodes, she is spellbound. Rhys has just become the Marquess of Blackhurst. He's not interested in marriage. He's not interested in taking his place in society. But Lydia fascinates Rhys as no other woman has ever done.
This is the third book in Heath's Daughters of Fortune series. I thought the first half of the book was very slow. Lydia and Rhys would find themselves together over and over again. He would kiss her then push her away for her own good. I thought the second half of the book when he is helping her enter society was more interesting. My rating: 3.5 Stars.

I did not like this book at all.The heroine falls in love with her stepdad's younger brother.The brothers are only half brothers and haven't seen each other in a long time but it was still too close for comfort. I just didn't like it.
