Louisa North likes her independence very much, despite her royal father’s protests. So when Simon Tremaine, the dashing Duke of Foxmoor, whom she once loved — and had exiled from England — returns bent on marrying her, she’s skeptical. The fire between them burns as hot as ever, but when Simon’s ulterior motive for marriage is exposed, along with the deeply buried secrets of his past, Louisa vows to make him pay… and the price will be his heart.


Review:  Louisa North is a daughter of the King, and Simon  left after things got complicated so when she has to marry him, the sparks fly. Louisa is working hard to save the ladies reform group and it involves going into prison, which is dangerous and Simon has political ambitions. How can Louisa trust that Simon really has feelings for her after they have had to marry for convenience?

Sabrina Jeffries’s  story kept me on the seat of my pants after she has so many obstacles that keep Louisa and Simon from acknowledging that they are meant to be together. And it is even more hard when Simon has grandfather baggage Big Time. I like it when the hero has baggage because it allows me to fall in love with him as Louisa does, especially at the end of the book.

I still have to read the first book of the series but the anthology based on this series was very addicting like this book. Sabrina Jeffries’s book Only a Duke Will Do is one book you should check out if you enjoy reading about strong women who fall in love with men who are softies.
