Harrison Thornwick was the youngest son and his brother the Earl had a young son. The last thing he ever expected was to become the Eael of Thornwick. And because of his cousin's support of the French, Harrison has drawn the attention of the Prince. He is given the ultimatum to either marry Miss Angelina Rule or go to Newgate for five years for dueling.
Miss Angelina Rule is a beautiful debutant in her first Season. She has dreamed of Captain Maxwell since he left for India when she was sixteen. Now he has returned to England and she wants to make a match with him. Unfortunately, her father has gambled away everything and has begged his cousin by marriage, the Prince for help. If Angelina marries Harrison, Mr. Rule's debt is paid. Harrison doesn't want to marry Angelina, but when he sees the fiery beauty, he changes his mind.
I loved the plot and the characters of this novel. Harrison grew up, but still retained his spirit from his wild youth. He is one of my favorite heroes I. The books I have read recently. Angelina just wants to save her father and still marry Captain Maxwell. I know the series is "Heir's Club", but I hope that Captain Maxwell gets his own novel or novella. There is more to his character and I felt sorry for him when the woman that he has been dreaming of is lost to him. The one thing I hate about a book like this is when it is over!
I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
