Dowry? She’ll have to go to London herself and knock some sense into the men interfering in her life. With the nonsense she’s dealt with lately, though, there’s no way she’s going as a woman. A pair of breeches and a quick chop of her red curls, and she’ll have much less to worry about. Jack Valentine, third son of the famous “Duchess of Love”, is through being pursued by pushy young ladies. One particularly determined Miss has run him out of his own house party. Luckily the inn has one bed left – Jack just has to share with a rather entertaining red-headed youth. Perhaps the two of them should ride to London together. It will make a pleasant escape from his mother’s matchmaking melodrama!

This was a good read with bits of humor thrown in throughout the book. The story line and character development were very well done. I loved the characters of Frances Hadley and Jack Valentine. Lord Jack is not quite the rake that everyone believes him to be, and by suggesting that they marry to protect her reputation before anyone finds out that they were alone together on the way to London would be disastrous. They slowly get to know each other, and when they get to London Frances gets closer with her twin brother. I love Sally MacKenzie‘s writing and will recommend all of her books. I give this book 4/ 5 stars.
