Isabelle Catherine Hutting is the eldest daughter of the vicar of Loves Bridge. All she wants is quiet so she can write her novel in peace. She thinks she finds the answer to her problem when Marcus, the Duke of Heart arrives in Loves Bridge. Marcus has to find a new Spinster for Spinster House and Cat wants to be the Spinster. He lives under a curse that has affected his family since the 3rd Duke got Isabelle Dorring pregnant then married another. No Duke shall live to see his heir's birth. Now, Marcus is stuck in Loves Bridge. Cat's independent spirit and wit captivate him to the point where he wants to forget about the curse and love Cat. Can true love end a centuries old curse?
Sally MacKenzie has written another wonderful novel. On one side it is engaging and humorous and the other side is a sensual romance building between Cat and Marcus. I hated having to stop reading when I had to go to work and would find myself wondering what was going to happen next. I loved the characters in the novel from Cat and Marcus to Nate and Alex (Marcus's cousin and friend) to Cat's siblings.
I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
