This is the 7th book in The Dukes of War Series and I my favorite. The Duke of Ravenwood is a peer who takes his responsibilities seriously. No one knows that he hates crowds, speaking in public and is uncomfortable in all social situations. Katherine is a young lady who pushes the limits and rules of Society and doesn’t care for her reputation. She is never getting married and is definitely never having children. Ravenwood has a reputation of being cold and haughty, it is just a show, he secretly wishes for love and family, but not with the hoyden Katherine Ross.
As you can surmise from the title they wind up in a compromising positon and are forced to marry. As they get to know each other they realize their is so much more to each other then they thought.
This is a very romantic story that actually brought me to tears. Beautifully written by Erica. I am so glad that I discovered Erica’s books. She writes an amazing story with a intelligent plot that moves at just the right pace. I loved the vulnerability of her characters. She gives them fears, quirks and insecurities that make them more real to the reader.
