How to tempt a duke? By refusing to be tempted at all...
He'd returned from war a duke. Now Rafael Daughtry was battling a force more terrifying than Napoleon's army—his family. Thankfully, his childhood friend Charlotte Seavers had agreed—reluctantly—to a bargain. While Rafe would provide her with the home she'd lost, Charlotte would provide him with a chaperone for his unruly twin sisters.
But who would chaperone Rafe? For the feisty young girl he remembered had blossomed into a sensual woman—a woman whose haunting beauty and deeply kept secrets drew him like no other. Charlotte had good reason to mistrust men—yet could Rafe's sizzling seduction convince her to give in to temptation?
I really loved this book! It was a great start of a series, with this family, and I can't wait to get to Rafe's sibling's stories! I know they'll be just as fantastic as this one, and I want to see how can stand up to these guys and gals as strong willed as they are!
I can't tell who got the better end of the bargain. Because they fell in love with each other, and while she didn't want to agree to the bargain in the first place, well, yeah, love. It was just really fantastic to read their story!
I did get confused with all of the female relatives, there were a lot, and I got them mixed up, though I did enjoy them, especially the twins, though more Lydia then Nicole, for some reason. Lydia, I just connected better to, I guess!
It was really great to watch these two get their happy ending! They fought it, and they didn't want it, but they got it, and then they were really happy with it, happy with each other! And that was just the best to read!
I enjoyed this book so much, and I can't wait to read Lydia and Nicole's stories and happy endings!
