Regency Seasons #10

Hiding behind her quick wit and biting tongue, the last thing in the world Lady Grace Post wants is a husband. After all, if she can’t have the love of her life, why would she want some other man? Unfortunately, her Machiavellian matchmaking great-uncle, the Duke of Danby, has other plans for Grace and has decided it is past time for her to be wed. To keep the duke from selecting a fellow she doesn’t want, Grace begins her great husband hunt, very aware that her time is ticking away.

Oliver Ashbee, Earl of Prestwood, has never gotten over Grace. Watching her from afar, as she dances and flirts with other men, is enough to drive him to an early grave. Things would be different if he could court her, if he could hold her, if he could kiss her again. If things had been different she’d have been his wife long ago. But things aren’t different…

…Or are they?

My Thoughts

Grace's heart shattered the moment Oliver told her they can't be married. From that moment on, Grace kept antagonizing him on their encounters. It was difficult for her to know that the man she loved can't be with her.

Duke of Danby, her great-uncle, was known to play matchmaker for the family that she decided to elude it by getting a husband of her own choice. It seemed difficult to find until Mr. Lacy. He's pleasant enough but deep - inside Grace knew that no man can instill the fire like Oliver did.

Oliver was heart-broken when he heard that Grace was getting married to another man. Supposedly, he can't blame her for doing so but that didn't mean he would like it. But was there another way?

I really like the story line with some twist and it was quite humorous in the end. Even though, there are some characters from the previous books, you won't get lost with it. It was explained well enough. Grace and Oliver were honest with their feelings and they weren't hiding it at all which was a refreshing change to what I normally read. There were issues and scandals from each of the family which I enjoyed immensely.

If you have read other stories with Duke of Danby, you will definitely enjoy this story.
