At Last Comes Love (Huxtable Quintet Series #3) by Mary Balogh

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Mary Balogh's The Secret Mistress.

Step into a world of scandal, intrigue, and enthralling passion as
New York Times bestselling author Mary Balogh sweeps us into the lives of an extraordinary family: the Huxtables. Margaret, the eldest, embarks on the most risqué adventure of her life and agrees to marry the most notorious man in London.

Only desperation could bring Duncan Pennethorne, the infamous Earl of Sheringford, back home after the spectacular scandal that had shocked even the jaded ton. Forced to wed in fifteen days or be cut off without a penny, Duncan chooses the one woman in London in frantic need of a husband. A lie to an old flame forces Margaret Huxtable to accept the irresistible stranger’s offer. But once she discovers who he really is, it’s too late—she’s already betrothed to the wickedly sensual rakehell. Quickly she issues an ultimatum: If Duncan wants her, he must woo her. And as passion slowly ignites, two people marrying for all the wrong reasons are discovering the joys of seduction—and awaiting the exquisite pleasure of what comes after….

Five years ago, Lord Duncan Pennethorne caused the scandal of the decade when he jilted his fiancé to run away with her sister-in-law. He stayed away from London until now. His grandfather has written him to find a wife in fifteen days or he will inherit nothing but a name. Desperate not for himself but for four years old Toby, Duncan moves into the home of his mom and stepfather as he has a fortnight to marry a proper spouse.-------------- At a ball, almost thirty and obviously on the shelf, Margaret Huxtable flees an unwanted suitor only to crash into Duncan. He quickly realizes she is perfect to satisfy his grandfather, but she proves to be a stubborn spinster. As he courts her and she rejects him, they become friends and soon fall in love. As each reveals their past secrets, they find hope in each other's arms until his scandal re-explodes. With her extended family in their court the lead couple believes love will bring justice to those who unfairly were punished and those who should have but were not.----------------- The third Huxtable Regency romance (see FIRST COMES MARRIAGE and THEN COMES SEDUCTION) is simply great as the story line takes a deep look at values that were powerful in the early nineteenth century and remain so today. The lead couple is a delightful pairing of two intelligent caring souls who try to always do the right thing even when the cost is their reputation. Fans will enjoy this superb entry while awaiting the last single Huxtable tale to be told.---------- Harriet Klausner

The best Mary Balogh bottk. Duncan P did something scandalous 4-years ago - he is scorned by the ton but needs a wife in a very short time period. He marries Margaret Huxtable and they go off to his estate. He brings his son to life with them. They are happy together until the future comes roaring back. The author handles a difficult topic beautiful - so read it!

I started reading this series backwards. I've read Con Huxtable story. Then read Stephan's story. Now I've read Meg's story. This story is a great read and can be read with the series. Or on it's own. Ms. Balogh is one of the most gifted writers.

I liked this book, but I have to say that I didn't love it as much as the others. Meg just never really interested me a great deal and so I enjoyed the books about Vanessa and Kate much more than this one.

It was a good story that gave Mag's character a lot more depth while resolving her lingering storylines from the previous two books. Definitely one to read if you like the series.
