All of London looks forward to the Dowager Duchess of Clayworth’s annual ball. For no matter how hard the serious society matron strives to host an elegant event, scandal always ensues…

Seven years ago it was a young Serena Donovan and Jonathan Dane who shocked the ton when they were discovered in a most compromising position. Tonight they return for the first time as the Earl and Countess of Stratford. And while Serena hopes for a quiet evening to introduce her younger sister Olivia to society, Jonathan’s only desire is to pick up where he and Serena left off…

Though innocent Olivia secretly longs for the kind of passion her sister shares with her husband, none of the men she’s met spark a fire inside her heart—least of all the notorious Marquis of Fenwicke. When his request for a waltz turns into something sinister, Olivia must use her wit and wiles to evade a powerful peer who vows if can’t have her, no man shall…

 

Review: I would have to say I was definitely left wanting more. If the intention of this book was to lure me in for the next book it has definitely succeeded in its task. Having not read the first book, Confessions of an Improper Bride, I am intrigued enough to go and pick that one up as well. The scandal of Jonathan and Serena’s story is one I would love to know more about. Olivia seems to be a very interesting and possibly very entertaining character. She is going to need someone pretty special to get through her defenses. The Marquis of Fenwicke is definitely a character I love to hate. At the end of the story is the prologue for the next book. After reading that I realize that Max already has me in his corner. The way he is portrayed is so endearing, I already know I am going to be cheering for him the whole time. I will definitely be going out to buy Secrets of an Accidental Duchess.
