Matson Brentwood is ready for the London gossipmongers to find something new and stop speculating about the fact that he and his twin brother strongly resemble Sir Randolph Gibson—who is not their mother’s husband. To make matters worse, he also has a bad case of infatuation with Sir Randolph’s ward, Miss Sophia Hart. Despite knowing that she’s out to snag a title to match her fortune, Matson is drawn to Sophia’s beauty, humor, and practical manner. Sophia is determined to fulfill her father’s dying wishes no matter what, driven by a somewhat childish need to make up for past wrongs. In this humorous conclusion to the Rogues’ Dynasty series of Regency romances (after A Gentleman Says “I Do”), Sophia plays a dangerous game, urging Matson to seduce her while looking elsewhere for marriage. Sophia’s two aunts, Mae and June, and Sir Randolph himself are delightful, and series fans will cheer Matson and Sophia to their happy ending. (July)
