I received a complimentary download of this book from Netgalley in exchange for a review.
Lucinda & Emily Cardington couldn't be more different. Lucinda is counting the days until she comes into her inheritance and can live a quiet life as a chaperoned spinster. Emily however is enjoying the social season and day dreaming about her future husband. Both the girls plans are threatened when Emily finds herself in a scandal with James Simpson, one of London’s most scandalous bachelors.
Emily’s Father agrees to James’s, post scandal marriage proposal to her under one condition, James must find a husband for Lucinda as well. Thus begins an entertaining and romantic journey for James and Lucinda as he realizes that he wants no man for Lucinda but himself.
This was a unique premise that took some getting used to in the beginning since James and Emily had been sharing stolen kisses for quite some time. I loved Lucinda’s love of books and practical personality. Emily was quite annoying in the beginning of the book but I soon enjoyed her story as well.
A sweet Historical romance with just the right touch of humor and passion.
