*Starred Review* Now that Genevieve Stafford’s brother, Lord Rawdon, is married, their grandmother, the countess, decides Genevieve must follow suit. After all, Genevieve is 25 years old, almost too old to be a bride. Urged by her friends but still skeptical, she prays to St. Dwynwen, the Welsh saint of love, for a husband. Almost miraculously, Lord Dursbury appears, and they become engaged. However, when Genevieve is trapped by an aggressively amorous member of the ton, a scandalized Dursbury dumps her. Just when it looks as though Genevieve is ruined for life, Myles Thorwood, Alec’s amiable best friend, proposes. Genevieve has known Myles since she was a child, and she thinks of him more as a friend than a romantic interest. Faced with disgracing the family forever, she accepts his proposal. Although Genevieve sees their relationship as a marriage of convenience, Myles is determined to make it a real marriage, no matter how long it takes to woo his wife. Camp’s third book in her Legend of St. Dwynwen series (A Winter Scandal, 2011; A Summer Seduction, 2012) sets a charming courtship against the duplicitous actions of the upper class. Readers will be captivated by the strong-willed heroine and the man who loved her all along. --Shelley Mosley
From the Author
The Marrying Season
is the final book in the Legend of St. Dwynwen series, the story of two people from the earlier books--Genevieve, Lord Rawdon's sister, and Sir Myles, his friend.
Genevieve was not the most likeable character in A Summer Seduction
, but she is a heroine with whom I strongly identified because she was shy and felt awkward in social situations. I hope that readers will come to know and like the woman behind the proud, aloof mask Genevieve adopted to cover her nervousness.
And Myles---well, he has always been the man from the trio of heroes whom I personally would have fallen for. Like my husband, he comes from a large family of women, has an easy-going personality, and no matter where you go, he nearly always turns out to be friends with someone there.
