Too-clever, too honest, Cassandra Pomfret is legendary in London society for her strong opinions, the latest of which has caused yet another uproar. Her exasperated father decrees that If Cassandra won’t conform for her own sake, her younger sister can neither finish her debut season nor wed before Cassandra does....
But fate has thrown a wrench in her father’s well-laid plans, in the person of the Duke of Ashmont, whose angelic swoon-worthy looks are completely eclipsed by his monumentally bad behaviour, and whose sudden, scandalous pursuit of Cassandra threatens her reputation as well as her family’s.
Ashmont may have his (nearly uncountable) flaws, but he knows better than to ruin a lady’s reputation. The only honourable course is to wed her - especially since he wants to - and hope they both make it to the altar without killing each other!
A delightfully clever, charming and romantic Difficult Dukes novel.
