Kate Westbrook's family has been snubbed by the ton ever since her father's marriage an actress. Kate feels that if she can just marry the right man, one with lord in front of their name, she will make life easier on her sisters.
Kate finally has the opportunity to find that husband when her friend Nick Blackshear keeps popping up. Kate's father has asked Nick to keep on eye on Kate when she goes out to each evening's entertainment.
Nick would do anything for Mr. Westbrook, even watch over the women that scorned him three years ago. Nick acts like his torch for Kate is gone, but spending more time with her just shows him that it isn't.
Because of a scandal with Nick's brother, he must marry into a family with no blemishes. Kate want to help her family finally find acceptance. Can they put aside their wishes to find the desire in both of their hearts?
I really enjoyed this story. Kate and Nick had developed a friendship (other than his initial declaration at the start of it) before trying to make it more. They had more to build their relationship upon that the normal physical attraction that you find in books. I don't know if there are going to be more books in the series, but I'd really love to see the story of Louise and Lord Barclay as well as the stories of Kate's sisters.
