What should a proper lady do when she believes her days are numbered?

Step One: Take a Lover . . .

After being told she will not survive beyond the year's end, prim and lovely Marguerite Laurent intends to live what remains of her life to the very fullest. Though she may never know love, she will know passion—and she agrees to a whirlwind romance with a former admirer. But hours before embarking upon her grand adventure, Marguerite is abducted—by an unscrupulous rogue who boldly announces his intentions to bed and wed her before the week is out!

Step Two: Live With No Regrets . . .

Ash Courtland pulled himself up from the gutter to become a successful man of business, and now he wants revenge on his one-time partner for betraying him. Still, his enemy's bewitching daughter is most certainly not about to surrender her innocence to the infuriating—if shockingly attractive—cad who took her captive. Yet with no more than a touch, Ash makes her tremble with desire . . . and resisting the heat of his passion could cost Marguerite her last, best chance for ecstasy.

Sophie has always been one of my go-to authors. However, this was by far my least favorite of her books. The premise was interesting. The heroine transformed from a seemingly deep character to a simpering idiot after the third chapter and the hero was completely forgettable and only slightly less obnoxious than the heroine. Even now, a few weeks after having read it... I'm still annoyed.

Not quite good as the first book in the series but still an entertaining read.

Good book- this was the first  had read of this author. The story moves well and there is great character chemistry between them

This story and the characters are likeable enough, but that is about it. Writing is competent, but not particularly evocative.

When I read a review here about this book I was prepared to be disappointed. Instead I was greatly pleased. This book was a continuation of the three friends at Penwich School for Girls. The last of the friends finds her mate and two half sisters which may lead to other books. Marguerite is a practical and logical nurse but, when something almost supernatural occurs it shakes her out of her comfort zone and into the arms of her father's business partner. But, according to her father a gutter rat isn't good enough for his daughter. I thought this character was well developed and consistent with how she was portrayed in the other books. I think the author walked a fine line between the romance and the supernatural in this book. It almost put me off but, I kept thinking this is when the scientific revolution really began to develop. After all bleeding with leeches was an acceptable and common medical practice for many ailments. A series of coincidences can shake anyone's common sense. In the end the author I believe resolved those issues in an satisfying measure. I recommend this series to anyone. I recommend the author as well.
