The wealthy Duke of Weybridge knows that everyone loves a good surprise…and a good scandal. He has bounteous amounts of both for the guests at his extravagant birthday ball — particularly for his nieces and nephew, Emily, Isabel, and Lucien. They think his promise to improve their lives means a generous stipend. But he’s got a different gift in mind: finding them perfect matches. His task won’t be easy, because the Arden siblings have given up on love.
Lucien is committed to his freewheeling bachelor lifestyle. Emily was brokenhearted when her engagement ended in disgrace. And Isabel’s dreams for a happy marriage were dashed with a terrible betrayal on her wedding night. As the duke’s celebration approaches, his romantic schemes ignite passions and spark more than a few juicy rumors that will have the ton buzzing for years.

This was like getting 3 romance stories in one. Michaels did a wonderful job with this because even the secondary stories felt really well done and complete. Usually I don't feel like the author gives enough development to secondary stories but Michaels managed to develop them completely and they also felt> finished at the end of the book. I don't want to give spoilers so I will just say that Leigh Michaels wrote another wonderful romance full of laughter and love.
