After being thrown over for the second time in one Season, Mr. Simon Appleton's interest in courting another young lady is less than his interest in reconciling with his estranged brother.
Entering into her third, and dare she hope final Season, Miss Henrietta Hughes has a single goal: make it to August without becoming engaged, thus securing her sister's promise of being allowed to become a spinster.
But with the most scandalous woman to ever step foot in London acting as Henrietta's chaperone and Simon's undeniable urge to vex her every chance he's afforded, they both might find themselves with new plans.

This book was just as good as the Scandalous Sisters, Brothers, and other Groom sets! I can't wait for the next book! I do believe its about time for a house party so we can see how all of these wonderful inter-connected characters are doing!!! Maybe see how the younger generation is faring since there are so many of them so close in age! :)
Passions of a Gentleman by Rose Gordon Gentlemen of Honor Series Book Three Simon Appleton has had a terrible Season. First he finds out he has a half-brother he never knew about and his parents give said brother all of their attention. Next, he befriends the friendless Isabelle Knight, only to find out she's still married. Then he gets attacked by highwaymen and wakes up naked in a bed, being riddled with questions from a boy with a very lovely mother. A mother who chooses his newly found half-brother over him. What more can go wrong? Henrietta Hughes is from a very large, very poor family. She's living with her sister, Lady Drakely, and her family. She's in her third Season and just wants to be left alone. Why can't anyone understand that she doesn't need a husband? And then there's the pesky, arrogant Simon Appleton. Looking at her like he remembers every detail from three years ago. If you enjoy series, be sure to read the first two books in this series; Secrets of a Viscount and Desires of a Baron. The reader can meet Simon in both books and understand why we find him feeling like he has no confidence left in this story. Her Secondhand Groom is Henrietta's sister's story and where the reader can first meet her. I enjoyed all three stories and it's great to see Simon get his happily-ever-after. **Sexual content within marriage
