With her three good friends all recently married, Elizabeth Turley is ready for some husband-hunting of her own. One gentleman in particular sparks her interest. Geoffrey, Earl of Harrington is tall, handsome, and dashing. He’s also just a bit too sure of himself. But Elizabeth has observed enough about the rules of attraction to pique the earl’s attention. Yet once she has it, the discovery of a troubling secret taints her future happiness . . .
Lord Harrington must marry or lose a prestigious position in Brussels, and pretty, well-connected Elizabeth fits his needs admirably. But could it be that he has underestimated his bride? She doesn’t bat an eye in the face of the danger they encounter overseas. She’s strong-willed, intelligent, and more enticing each day—yet also more indifferent to him. Now Geoffrey faces his greatest challenge: to woo and win his own wife, or risk losing her for good . . .
This is book 5 in the Worthingtons series. This will be the first time I haven't enjoyed reading a book, for me I just couldn't connect with Geoffrey, he comes across as being perfect and far too sure of himself and he wants a wife who will also be perfect.
Geoffrey thought he had found the perfect lady to be his wife, but then he was called away, and when he returned the lady in question had set her sights else where. So that left Geoffrey with a problem, because he needed to be married within two weeks, because he was taking a position in Brussels.
Even though I wasn't keen on Geoffrey, the lady who he chooses to be his potential wife is Elizabeth, who is the exact opposite to Geoffrey. She is warm, loving and a loyal friend and sister. For me when Geoffrey is talking to Elizabeth, I felt he was interviewing her, rather getting to know her.
Luckily for Geoffrey, he gets help from his grandmother and aunt. Because without them he would have definitely lost Elizabeth.
Because I didn't really enjoy this book, it won't stop me from reading Ms Quinn's books in the future. So with that in mind I will give this book 4/5 stars.
This book is on pre-order at Amazon UK and is released on 29th May.
I received this book from Netgalley in return for a honest review.
