Catherine Evan has been in love with the Earl of Kerrick since they met. Unfortunately, she has had to wait to have her coming out to pursue him. As the season starts, Catherine eagerly awaits having her first dance with Kerrick. She soon learns that Kerrick's mother has plans for Kerrick to marry the daughter of her best friend, but that doesn't stop them from forming an attachment as he has no plans to marry the other woman.
Unbeknown to most of the ton, Kerrick works for the government and has one last assignment. He must pretend to court a young woman, the very one his mother wants him to marry, to get close to her father to see if he is a traitor.
Can Kerrick save the relationship he has just started with Catherine while trying to do his job or will she be swept up by someone else?
I've been eagerly awaiting Kerrick's story since I read Loving the Marquess. Medeiros did not disappoint. She had me laughing throughout the story with the witty conversation and antics of the characters which is what brings me back to reading more from an author.
Medeiros does a great job of getting you invested in her secondary characters. They have as much depth of character as the H/H of the story, which leaves the reader hoping to see them again! I was happy to read at the end of the novel that Rose (the other woman) and Brantford (Kerrick's boss) would be getting their story next. I can't wait to read it!!
