After falling in love twice and having her heart broken, Meg Featherton is determined to marry a man who does not engage her heart. Having set her eyes on such a man, she sets out to find if they would suit. But she has another mission that occupies her time as well. She believes that a scoundrel is determined to win the hand of her best friend. She must see if he is worthy of her. What she doesn't know is that scoundrel is after her!
Damon, Marquis of Hawksworth, has determined that Meg will be his bride. He can't figure out why she seems immune to his charms. Determined to bring her to the altar, he does everything he can to convince her that he is not the man that everyone thinks he is.
Can Damon convince Meg that he is worth risking her heart again?
This is probably my favorite of Quinn's stories and I'm sad to say it is the last in the series.
I liked that we see a whole transformation of Damon throughout the story. He comes back from war and is bored because his father won't give him any responsibilities of the dukedom. Everyone ends up thinking he is a scoundrel. But while trying to woo Meg, he decides that she needs to know the real him and we see that he is a totally different person than the one we have been led to believe.
Meg is ready to give up on love. But she soon learns that if the right guy comes along it might be worth letting him into her heart. She realizes that she didn't really know her previous fiancee's, all she saw was what they wanted her to see. Which ended up not being who they truly were. This time she was able to learn about the real man behind the persona he showed the rest of the world and fell in love with him.
Of course we have an enjoyable appearance by our elder matchmaking ladies...another one in the books for them!!
Quinn is starting a new series starting in March of 2016!
