Overview

#1 New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens has returned to another utterly irresistible branch on her beloved Cynster family tree . . .

The only thing more troublesome than a Cynster man . . .

. . . is a Cynster lady who believes love is not her destiny. Famously known in London society as "The Matchbreaker," Henrietta Cynster's uncanny skill lies in preventing ill-fated nuptials—not in falling victim to Cupid's spell.

But then she disrupts one match too many and feels honor-bound to assist dashing James Glossup in finding a suitable bride for a marriage-of-convenience.

A task infernally complicated by the undeniable, unquenchable attraction that flares between James and Henrietta, who continues to believe she will never fall . . .

John Charles
This romance is richly imbued with breathtaking sensuality, pleasing wit, and just the right dash of intriguing danger.
Kirkus Reviews
When Henrietta Cynster steps in to prevent a friend from marrying James Glossup, her brother's best friend, she feels honor-bound to help him find a bride; she doesn't expect to become one herself. Known as The Matchbreaker in late Regency society, Henrietta Cynster takes no pleasure in disrupting James Glossup's pursuit of her friend, Melinda. But she knows Melinda wants to marry for love, and while James would like to marry her, he does not love her. Henrietta has learned that James, her brother's best friend, needs to find a wife in a timely manner or he will lose an enormous financial inheritance that supports the tenants of his estate. Feeling guilty for placing so many innocent people in jeopardy, Henrietta agrees to help James find a suitable bride for a marriage of convenience. But as James and Henrietta plan and consider the possibilities, James realizes that the woman of his dreams is right in front of him, and a marriage of convenience is no longer an option. Convincing Henrietta he's the man for her is risky enough, but when it becomes clear that someone is trying to kill Henrietta for no apparent reason, James, Henrietta and all of the Cynster clan jump into investigative mode to get to the bottom of it. Laurens' newest addition to the popular Cynster family novels is a touching romance set against a mystery that heightens the sexual tension between two characters who are only beginning to understand just how much they mean to each other. The mystery--which causes Henrietta's endangerment--seems a little strained in the end, but as it sets up dramatic external conflict and compels high-stakes emotional honesty, readers will likely be willing to forgive its weaknesses. With witty, authentic dialogue, great writing and characters, and a charming story of two people forced to look more closely at something that's been there all along, the romance in this book is potent and winning and generally overcomes the slightly shaky core of its suspense elements.

If you are a fan of the Cynster clan.....this is the book for you. Actually I think I liked this book so much, it is probably one of my favorites of the whole series(all 20...so far and I have them all). Don't get me wrong, I have enjoyed all of the Cynster tales, but Henrietta and James made this a story that you could get wrapped up in. It was very hard to put down once you started to read it. I am looking forward to Mary's story......but I hope that isn't the end of the series. Looking forward to June's release date and thank you for writing such wonderful stories.

This book was a disappointing entry in the Cynster series. The romance between Henrietta and James seemed contrived and unbelievable. The subplot involving a murder was interesting and well written, but was not enough to redeem the book. I feel that 2 of the last 3 of Ms Laurens' books were mediocre, and I may not purchase her next release.

Good story. Well worth the wait. Really looking forward to Mary's adventure in the next book. The lead in from this book makes it sound just as exciting as this was. In this book, I tried to figure out whom the "badguy" was and if he was another victim of the "Matchbreaker." I didn't see the outcome and therefore his story, so was just as suprised as they were. Sometimes we need a pushy sister to make us do things that we should do. Sometimes its just what we need, but now I wonder if the push will come from her sister, or her friend.

Why oh why have Romance Novels become graphic sex and porn with little or no Romance? Why the repetition? Please bring Romance back!!!!!

A tall figure in a flowing hooded robe swept into the village, face hidden by the hood. Glancing around he approached the 14-year-old and grabbed her wrist in a steel grip.

She crept out slowly, looking at Su. Tears stung her face and she came out, hugging her tightly.
