Description from Amazon.com:
A battle of wills!
When Lady Sara Herriard’s husband dies in a duel, she turns her back on the vagaries of the ton. From now on, she will live as she pleases. She won’t change for anyone—certainly not for the infuriating Lucian Avery, Marquess of Cannock!
Lucian must help his sister recover from a disastrous elopement and reluctantly enlists Lady Sara’s help. She couldn’t be further from the conventional, obedient wife he’s expected to marry, but soon all he craves is for her to surrender—and join him in his bed!
I don’t expect to love every book I read. This one was well written but I really didn’t like the heroine, Sara. And I just couldn’t wrap my head around her pushy interference in Lucian’s family life. I mean yes it was nice of her to want to help but she was like an overpowering tornedo. My way or the highway. I couldn’t get past that to enjoy the story or other characters. Let’s just chalk this one up to “not my cuppa tea”.
(But if ever I was to buy a book because of the cover, this one would be it. The H/h in the book match the cover and the balcony also features in the book. I want to see more of this reference between both cover and story in other novels.)
