Overview

A taciturn soldier and a social butterfly --is the perfect home worth the price of a marriage of inconvenience?
Blake Montague's draconian temper and clever mind belong on the Continent, decoding French communications. Instead, as the youngest son of a baron, he's terrorizing London ballrooms in search of a wife who will buy the commission he can't afford.

Jocelyn Carrington, after years of smiling through the pain inflicted by an uncaring family, has just inherited a fortune. Now she can buy the special home with an aviary her eccentric younger brother needs--but Blake Montague's family owns it. They offer the house if she will marry their son and prevent him from marching off to war. Except Blake will use her dowry to buy his commission.

How can Jocelyn gain the home of her dreams while keeping alive a courageous man with a bad habit of attracting trouble? Can Blake believe the beautiful Jocelyn might actually free him from his family's manipulations?

Can this wary, cynical pair open their hearts to trust in the power of love?

Blake Montague and Jocelyn Byrd-Carrington were made for each other. Both hide behind false fronts, and watching the two of them learn about each other and what will make the other happy is a delicious journey. She hides behind a blank smile and he hides behind a grimace. Blake is brilliant, but is having a hard time convincing the War Department that they need him. Jocelyn has too many people needing her, and she works hard to secure the safety and happy of those who are dependent on her. When Jocelyn sees Blake finally smile and relax in her presence, it is very, very sweet. When Blake finally eggs Jocelyn on to finally show some emotion, I wanted to cheer. I really enjoyed this book. Both Blake and Jocelyn are intentionally deceptive about things that are very important to them, and which have a huge impact on their future together. One of the things that I really liked about the characters is when their respective deceptions are discovered, they understood each other. It did not cause their relationship to sour or require one to beg or grovel for forgiveness. They had come to love each other, and that helped them forgive and move forward. This is the second book in the Rebellious Sons series, with Fitz and Abigail making a few appearances. It can be read as a standalone, but you should read the first book, too, as it is just as fun.
