This is book 2 in the Heirs' Club of Scoundrels Trilogy.
Harrison Thornwick never imagined that he would one day be the Earl, but when his father and brothers suddenly die he finds himself thrust into being the head of the family. Wanting to get the estate into order, he is surprised to get a visit from the King's man demanding that he marry a lady of his the King's choosing or go to prison for fighting a duel. With only one option, Harrison heads off to London to meet the woman he is to marry. He is attracted to her the moment he spies her across the ballroom, but she is in love with someone else.
Angelina Rule has been in love with her Captain for many years and is just waiting on his return. When she learns of her father's debt, she knows that she must do her duty and marry to save her father from going to debtor's prison. Even with her heart given to another man, Angelina finds herself attracted to Harrison and can't seem to keep from kissing him.
Will Angelina realize that what she thought she wanted is not what she really needs to get her HEA?
Loved this story!! We've got Angelina who is caught between two men. The Captain is finally back and he is who she has dreamed of for the past three years. But she doesn't want her father to go to prison, so she must marry Harrison...unless she can't come up with another plan!
I loved the love triangle and watching Harrison do everything in his power to get Angelina to see that he was the right man for her. The chemistry between the two of them was red hot!!
I can't wait to read the last book in the trilogy which is about Harrison's friend, Adam Greyhawke!
