Secrets of a Scandalous Heiress by Theresa Romain

Secrets of a Scandalous Heiress by Theresa Romain.

This is book 3 in the Matchmaker Trilogy.

Heiress Augusta Meredith is in Bath to find a lover. But because of her notoriety, she is posing as the Widow Mrs. Flowers. Hoping to find a lover without anyone else the wiser, she is dismayed to encounter someone from London that she knows. Joss Everett knows who she is and calls her out on her charade.

Hoping he will keep her secret, she offers to help him with his task of finding a buyer of some land his is trying to see for his employer. Having already turned down Augusta's offer to be her lover, Joss finds himself becoming more and more attracted to her.

Can Augusta keep her identity a secret and find a lover or will the attraction that she feels for Joss consume them both?

I really enjoyed the conclusion to Romain's Matchmaker trilogy.  I like stories that are in the world of the ton, but feature an unlikely H/H.

Romain's addition of a blackmailer just made the story that much more interesting and kept me reading to the very end to see who it was (big surprise!) I also liked that the H/H got to know each other as friends first.  Augusta proposed that Joss become her lover and after he turns her down, they proceed to develop a friendship that ultimately lead to love.

I'm excited to see what Romain has in store for us next!
