This is book 4 in the Scandalous House of Calydon.
After being jilted by a lord, Miss Payton Peppiwell is determined to marry someone that is NOT of the peerage. Unfortunately her family has other plans. But during a house party, she meets Mikhail Konstantinovich, a man that has no title and leads an ordinary life. Payton can't believe the attraction she feels for the man and she soon gives in to her passions.
Mikhail is hiding several big secrets, one of which is the fact that not only is he a member of the peerage, but he is actually a prince. As his feeling grow for Payton, it becomes harder and harder for him to tell her the truth.
What will Payton do when she finds out that the man she has fallen in love with is a part of the institution she abhors?
Loved this story!! The chemistry between Payton and Mikhail was red hot!! I liked that Payton got to know Mikhail without knowing that he was a prince. It allowed him to find someone that truly loved him for himself and not his position. Unfortunately for him, he fell for someone that would have rather had a horse trainer for a husband.
I liked Payton a lot. I don't blame her for not wanting to associate with the ton after what she and her family had gone through. She made a promise to herself and meant to keep it…too bad she fell in love with a prince!!
As with the rest of the series, Reid had me enthralled the entire story. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
