This is a historical romance about a wealthy American family who moves to London. Since the Lindwells already have money, the father wants each of his twin daughters to marry titled me.
Temperance Lindwell, one of the twins, was deceived by her fiancé who was in love with someone else. She called off the engagement and caused a scandal. She is the main reason the family left.
Unfortunately, Temperance no longer wants to get married. She is a smart, independent woman who does not want to become the “property” of some man who caters to his “whims,” while she is unable to follow her own dreams.
James Harrow, Marquess of Ridgemont, has been told it is time for him to marry. His brother-in-law sets up a dance for James with Temperence. When they have their dance, James and Temperence disagree about everything.
When Temperence goes outside for some fresh air, she is attacked by two men who kidnap her. James, being a gentlemen and a protector of women, tries to stop it, and he, also, gets captured.
The rest of the book reminds me of an old black and white movie. James and Temperence, with their totally different personalites, are kept in one room where they must work together to find a way to escape.
The two captors are so inept and so stupid that they remind me of the crooks on “Home Alone.” This unusual situation allows James and Temperence to get to know each other better, and they learn to respect each other. It is fun to watch as this author, skillfully, allows the main characters to reveal their true personalities to each other.
This is the ninth book of the “Sins and Scandals” series. Throughout most of the book, I could not even notice that there were other books in this series. However, toward the end of the book, many secondary characters referred back to their own experiences when they courted their wives. At that time, I wished I had read the other books, just because their back stories sounded interesting. In spite of that, I was able to appreciate and enjoy this book.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Reading Deals. This is my voluntary and honest opinion of it.
Provided a complimentary copy of this book so I could give an honest review.
