Lady Clarissa Mcpherson has determined to never wed because she can't find anyone that makes her heart pound the way it does when she is around Lord Theodore "Ben" Bennett. A friend of her brother, Ben had never given her any indication that he even sees her as a woman. But everything changes the day that her comes to her rescue. They are caught in a compromising position and are forced to wed.
No one is more shocked than Ben himself that he came to the rescue of Clarissa. Although he is not ready to get married, he does need an heir, so now is as good a time as any to do it. What his beautiful new bride doesn't know is that he had been intrigued with her for many years. He has also made the decision to give up his rakish ways and be faithful to Clarissa.
What will it take to convience Clarissa that Ben has turned over a new leaf and is determined to be the husband that she wants and deserves?
I really liked this story! The bantering between Clarissa and Ben had me laughing out loud. They do say the rakes make the best husbands and that is certainly the case with Ben! Determined to make a marriage of their forced wedding, he did everything he could to get Clarissa to see that he was a changed man. Of course, if they had just talked a little sooner then they could have enjoyed the thrills of married life a little sooner...but then where would the story have been??
The next book in the series stars Clarissa's best friend Lady Belinda Howells and her brother Lord Phillip Macpherson. It looks to be just as good as this one!!
