Lord Boyce Parker wants to regain his father's respect after he published a scandalous book. The Earl of Stainthorpe has placed an advertisement because his daughter needs a husband. The Earl issues the challenge of a race that ends in Paris. There are several contests within the contest and each one has it's own cup. Boyce hires a hot air balloon to take him to Paris so he can win the race and the challenges. The pilot of the is Eve Mountfloy.
To be honest, I just could not get into the book. I got to chapter two and couldn't read further. I found Boyce to be an arrogant idiot and stopped reading.
I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
