Description
Fans of Bridgerton will adore this charming second-chance Regency Romance that includes:
  • An anxiety-ridden duke who must marry
  • An untouchable countess determined never to love again
  • A bargain that leaves them both in danger of losing their hearts
  • With a painful history between them Michael, the Duke of Wyverne, has no idea why Caroline, Countess of Stratton, would agree to help him find a bride. As the most sought-after woman in London society, Caroline has motivations of her own.

    Brilliant but rumored mad, Michael Layward, the impoverished Duke of Wyverne, has no success courting heiresses until widowed Lady Stratton takes up his cause—after first refusing his suit.

    Caroline Graves, the popular Countess of Statton, sits alone at the pinnacle of London society and has vowed never to remarry. When Michael—her counterpart in an old scandal—returns to town after a long absence, she finds herself as enthralled with him as ever.

    As she guides the anxiety-ridden duke through the trials of London society, Caroline realizes that she's lost her heart. But if she gives herself to the only man she's ever loved, she'll lose the hard won independence she prizes above all.

          It isn't easy finding a wealthy woman to wed when most of society believes you are crazy. Michael Layward, duke of Wyverne, discovers this particular axiom when he arrives in London, only to find that everyone in the town still thinks of him as Mad Michael. Unfortunately, if Michael is to have any hope at all of saving his duchy from ruin, he needs to marry a lady with buckets of money. Fortunately for Michael, Caroline Graves, countess of Stratton, is willing to help him rebuild his reputation despite the fact that he almost destroyed hers 11 years ago. There's only one problem with Caroline's plan. Each lady Caroline introduces to Michael seems to have all the necessary qualities he needs in a wife except one: she isn't Caroline. The latest in Romain's (It Takes Two to Tango, 2013) Matchmaker trilogy will wow readers with its perfectly imperfect protagonists and emotionally compelling plot. With this superbly written novel it is easy to see why Romain is one of the rising stars of Regency historical romance.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2014, American Library Association.)
