What a lovely story of romance, just the right amount of angst...and a happy ending although I wasn't sure it would be. The story of Phillip and his lovely bride. Although she starts out with disgrace she more than acquits herself. She starts a home for war widows and their children after her brother writes to her of his fellow soldier's wife, asking her to look out for her. Ms. Bolen's books are always well written , and I can't wait for the next one!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. If you don't care for explicit love scenes this book is great. The story is so very entertaining.

Liked the characters and the story but it felt rushed at the end.

Lady Elizabeth Upton is on a mission of charity, hoping to find a home for the widow and child of a soldier killed in the Peninsular War, when a series of accidents leads her into a very compromising situation involving a tub of bath water and the Duke of Aldridge. As the daughter of a marquess, she has a position in society to uphold; she can’t laugh away such an embarrassing incident. But she has no intention of being forced into a loveless marriage, either, even if she did once have a girlhood crush on Philip Ponsby long before he became a duke.

Although it was not as good as some of her other books, it was still a cute read. I was hoping for a little more suspense, I would love to find out what happens between lord sister and his wife cousin, if the bill passed and what happens to the widows. But all in all I will continue to read this author.

I really loved this story. I really enjoyed that i didn't have to flip thru page after page of sex tales. It was the first pleasant thing that i noticed as i was reading. The story was good.

Philip Ponsby, the 5th Duke of Aldridge, has returned to London after spending five years in Italy.  He has grown weary of having young women chasing after him.  He has decided that it is time to begin working for the Foreign Office and join the House of Lords.  His longtime friend, Charles Upton, Marquess of Haverstock is thrilled that he will be returning home. Lady Elizabeth Upton, sister to Charles Upton, is a young woman whose mission has long been to care for others.  Her dream is to see that the widows of men killed in action are cared for as many of them and their children are nearly homeless and have no funds.  Elizabeth is a single lady who, for many years, carried a torch for the handsome Captain Smythe serving in the war.  She felt he loved her in return but his lack of any contact with her during his absence has finally convinced her to forget about him and concentrate on helping others. When Elizabeth goes to Aldridge’s home to visit his sister, an unfortunate event occurs that leaves Philip with no recourse but to offer for Elizabeth’s hand in marriage to save her reputation.  Their quick so-called marriage of convenience finds them each falling in love with the other but when numerous misunderstandings occur that make each of them think that the other is “straying,” they aren’t sure if the other one truly loves them. This novel is filled with wonderful descriptions of beautiful gowns, sumptuous dinners and real life.  Elizabeth is a very intelligent woman who wants only to make her husband proud of her and strives to entertain well to that end.  Philip is a hard working man trying to solve many problems facing his country. I think the reader will enjoy the stories of Elizabeth and Philip plus those of their family members.  I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did. This is book #2 of the House of Haverstock series.
