Everything is not what it seems.
Griffith, Duke of Riverton, has decided it is time to find the woman he’ll fall in love with. In fact, he’s even decided who this woman is going to be: Miss Frederica St. Claire. So, her counsin, Miss Isabella Breckenridge does not fit in his plan at all; he’ll have a hard time convincing himself of that, though.
I especially enjoyed the first half of this book. I found it kind of interesting and very funny at times. Griffith was a splendid character, my favorite by far!
However, the second half, where everything was about solving the mess characters had created up to that moment, wasn’t very good in my opinion. I was not completely involved in that part of the story, and Isabella got a bit annoying to me.
I think the problems were not that difficult to solve, so it seemed as if the story was prolonged unnecessarily.
It was awesome to see a glimpse of Colin and Georgina again, though! Their book is still the one I enjoyed the most out the entire series.
I also loved the beautiful meaning and importance Griffith gave to dancing. Besides, his integrity and good heart made him a true hero to me.
I’m glad to know the Hawthorne family found his happy ending after all.
