Not only has Mary sworn off men, Redgrave is so very wrong for her. But she cannot stop thinking of his kisses. Redgrave means to stay away from Mary but it is impossible. Passion between two people who can never be together is a dangerous game.
I loved it! The books is really good. I loved both main characters. This series has been pretty amazing. Every book is better than the previous. Mary's story is no less romantic or scandalous as compared to her siblings'. The story flows smoothly from the start until the very end and kept me on my toes. It was full of intrigue, betrayal, hurt, love, and humor too. In my opinion this is a perfect historical romance <3
Mary has yet to find her soul mate. And she isn't ready to settle down for anyone other than her true love. Therefore it is very likely that she will not marry at all. She is sister of a Duke.

A beautiful historical romance novel which I enjoyed reading a lot. I hope other readers do too. :D
