"Miss Gail Alton was not having a good day. Or a good year. First, she's strong-armed into attending the Season as a foil to her beautiful sister Evangeline. Then, while riding her mare in the park, she gets toppled by a stuffy, self-important, too-handsome-by-half "gentleman" who has the audacity to blame her for their fall into the chilly lake! Little does Gail know that the very same man will soon be found in a compromising position with her sister... Forced into asking for Evangeline's hand in marriage, Maximillian, Viscount Fontaine, can't take his mind off the irksome girl who threw him from his horse and who can match wits with him at every turn. He's determined to follow through with his best intentions, yet he can't deny that Gail makes him want to cast propriety aside-and whisk away the sister of his soon-to-be bride" - Taken from cover p.4.

I was not as entranced by this novel as the previous reviewers. The plot was a little contrived, the characterization a little thin. It held my interest for a day, but will be forgotten soon. A good beach read, that's all.

This book is one of my favourite light reads of 2008 for all of the following reasons. Firstly, it has a not so perfect heroine, whom many people can relate to and secondly it has a dashing rogue that would make anyone fall in love. Thirdly, there is a lot of humour and spice which keeps the book fun and entertaining. Although it does not contain any villains, or mystery, the funny storyline makes it worthwhile. I would definitely recommend this book and it is worth the five stars I gave it!
For people who enjoyed this book as much as I did, check out novels written by Julia Quinn, Sabrina Jeffries, Suzanne Enoch and Karen Hawkins!
