2nd of this series about American heiresses looking for husbands in England. I enjoyed it, not quite as much as the previous book, "To Marry The Duke", but still a compulsive read.
The first half of this book is about a rake who doesn't really want to reform, but finds himself so attracted to the heroine that he can't help himself, and ends up marrying her. The second half is a different story, about a newlywed couple adjusting to married life, while his family are subtly trying to sabotage the marriage by undermining the heroine's trust in her husband and basically "gaslighting" her. On a second read of the book, I found this part even more interesting. Clara, luckily was pretty levelheaded and reacted to situations in a rational way, by trying to logically talk things out with her husband, which put her a step above many romance heroines.
