What is a young Worthington woman to do when the man of her dreams is not who she thinks he is?

This season, all eyes are on the Earl of Worthington’s spirited, beautiful sister, Lady Louisa Vivers. Many gentlemen are vying for her attention in and around the ton. Yet, Louisa longs for someone who can take her beyond the ballroom—a man who is worldly, adventurous, and passionate. She won’t settle for just any suitor. She wants her true soul mate—and she’ll know him when she sees him.

Is Gideon, the Duke of Rothwell, him? The moment he and Louisa meet, they share a powerful attraction. Rides at sunrise and waltzes at dusk follow. Finally, Gideon can no longer resist the urge to embrace her, and Louisa is sure he will ask for her hand. But Gideon believes he is in no position to marry. The Rothwell estate has gone bankrupt, a scandal simmers in its wake, and he has nothing left to offer. Now, he must decide if he will let pride stand in the way of true love—or if he will risk everything, and let the lady decide for herself…
Nothing beats reading a historical romance about a strong-willed lady who knows what she wants and very determined to marry for love. A chance encounter was all it takes to build the sizzling attraction between Louisa and Gideon. Imagine the surprise when they both realised how small their world was and how it brought them together again. Although the attraction was there, there was nothing Gideon could do until he sorted out the mess his father had left behind. Then comes the danger... the misunderstanding... and... more.

I really enjoy reading about Louisa and the funny little adventures and 'conspiracy' that she has. It is very obvious that both Louisa and Gideon were destined for each other from the start but there were many obstacles in their way but it concluded nicely.

The pacing of the story was good and engaging. Quinn has a good cast of supporting characters who helped to bring the story to live. Although this is the third book in the story, I have no problem reading it as a standalone. I'd definitely recommend this light read to anyone who fancies a lovely historical romance read.
