Lady Charlotte Hastings—already branded a hellion by polite society—is in a terrible scrape, courtesy of London's most notorious blackguard. One thing is certain: her name cannot appear in the gossip rags... again. However, Charlie's bold attempt to extricate herself from the fine pickle she's in takes an unexpected turn, when the devilishly handsome Maximilian, the Duke of Exmoor—the rakehell she's secretly loved for years—comes to her aid.
Upon discovering the irrepressible Lady Charlotte—his best friend's younger sister—is in danger, Max Devereux feels duty bound to offer assistance. Only, he soon realizes he's also mired in deep trouble, when an entirely inconvenient desire for Charlie sparks to life. If that's not enough to contend with, Max's manipulative mother is busily engineering his betrothal to a perfectly polished debutante. A hardened rake with an armor-plated heart, Max has absolutely no intention of becoming leg-shackled to anyone. At least, not this Season.
When unforeseen disaster strikes, plunging both Charlie and Max headlong into a new public scandal, Max proposes a deal: to restore Charlie's good name and to help Max avoid his mother's machinations, they'll enter a temporary engagement-of-convenience. But, even the best laid plans can go awry. As passion flares between Max and Charlie, their arrangement doesn't seem like make-believe anymore... and hidden enemies intent on ruining Charlie, once and for all, are waiting in the wings. Will a happily-ever-after ever be within their reach?
Sighs. We have reached book 4. Sounds like it might be the last one because she was the last girl of the group to finally find love.
The story follows Lady Charlotte and Max Devereux. Lady Charlie has been on the edge of polite society since she was kicked out of the girl's school for unladylike behavior and since she is seen as the leader of the trope, she is seen as even more of a hellion. But now she is in trouble again...and Max might be the only person who can help.
I am in loveee with that cover! That dress...the colors. Beautiful indeed!!
Yayy! I've been rooting for these two to get together since I seen them first interact. I knew they would be perfecccctttt together. And Charlie deserved love. Max too especially when we learn about his terribly sad childhood. Poor guy :(
The mystery was fun and unexpected. It blew my mind for sure when all the reveals came out at the end. It all made sense though! Loved it!
This was one of my favorite of the series. Max and Charlie are perfect together. Max is damaged and Charlie is struggling to fix her image. It starts with a convenient engagement to help both of them and then actual love.
I do hope we get more in this world. I loved the stories and the people. I really want to see a couple side characters find happiness like Max's sister-in-law. Poor girl. So sad.
They did change up the narrator in this one. I was nervous, but this narrator did well! Her voices fit. The Scottish accents were a little rough at first for some of the characters, but I liked her. It worked well.
In the end, this was one of my favorite of the series. I loved Charlie and Max. They deserved happiness. I hope we get more! Too sad to say goodbye! I'll give this 5 stars.
