Description

The conclusion of New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James's Essex Sisters series!

Fueled by the knowledge that notoriety is better than failure, witty, unconventional Josie does what no proper young lady should—she challenges fate. She discards her corset and flirts outrageously. She attends the horse races and allows an arrogant rakehell to whisk her behind the stables for a surreptitious kiss . . . and is caught!

She doesn't want to marry the young hellion—but who's to help? Her chaperone keeps disappearing for mysterious appointments; her guardian is on his wedding trip; and his friend the Earl of Mayne is too busy staring into the eyes of his exquisite French fiancÉe.

Can a marriage forced by stuffy convention and unwilling desire become the match of the season?

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 09, 2006 – In the final installment in her Four Sisters series (after Taming of the Duke), James tells the story of Josie, the only Essex sister yet unmarried. Nicknamed the "Scottish Sausage" by a rejected suitor, Josie believes that no man will ever seriously court her because her figure is too ample. When Josie is insulted at a ball, Garret, earl of Mayne, whisks Josie back to his home where his friendly tutelage on attracting a man results in a fleeting moment of passion. But Garret is engaged to a beautiful, genteel French aristocrat, having abandoned his former rakish ways. As Josie begins attracting various suitors and Garret wrestles with his feelings for her, an intriguing subplot has the ton speculating on the identity of the "earl of Hellgate," whose scandalous, anonymous memoirs have been making the rounds. James is skilled at bringing her characters fully to life, gracing Josie's feelings of inadequacy and Mayne's false sense of love with the believable, individual quirks that draw them to each other. Engaging humor and steamy romance give this captivating regency a fine polish.

What wonderful comedic instances to keep this cute love story going strong! I loved reading every moment of it. James is one of my Favs as she covers a variety of material to make this novel thorough and interesting. Great read!!!

Earl of Mayne - a favorite of mine :)

This book is absolutely wonderful to read. At times I wanted to reach through the pages and punch characters in defense of others. Seriously, it is not easy to rile me so. I am so glad to have the opportunity to finish the Essex Sisters series.

Thank you so much for continuing to write books that allow escape from the real world, into places where there are real, true heroes, and love that lasts forever.
