Gareth Cavendish, Duke of Wessex, believes he’s chosen the perfect bride… until he meets her sister and lightning strikes—literally! Now he’s the only member of society dreading the wedding of the season. Or is he? Cleo Barrows can’t fathom why her knees weaken every time the handsome duke approaches, or why her sister isn’t in the clouds at the prospect of marrying him. But the more often wedding plans throw Cleo and Gareth intimately together, the faster time is running out to turn the celebration of the summer into the scandal of the year...and a happily-ever-after.
Originally published as part of At the Duke's Wedding. Now with a bonus epilogue.

WHAT A CUTE NOVELLA!! This is a quick read - I got it as part of a set called Seven Wicked Nights. There is mild lovemaking, that was just descriptive enough that you felt the passion. Your heart will ache for Cleo and how she was treated by her parents. She and her sister are so different and there lies the problem for the Duke. The Duke is a great character and you will love how he is torn from doing right, or following his heart. There is an epilogue, and I wish it included a little more - like weddings. But, no cliffhangers, and you will enjoy the journey how their love builds.(ljb)
I originally read this novella in the anthology "At the Duke's Wedding" and loved it. When a group of authors announced a $0.99 sale and I heard Caroline Linden had added an epilogue, I had to buy it. I'm so glad I did. It was a lovely evening's read and the epilogue was worth every penny! Since novellas are short, I hate to reveal any plot spoilers. I will say that Gareth, the Duke, didn't expect to love his chosen bride, but when he meets her sister sparks fly. What is he to do? Read it and find out. I can highly recommend this novella.
I bought this book in the set "Seven Wicked Nights". An excellent read.
