About the book: Caroline is not looking forward to this year’s Season in London. Her mother already has schemes for her marriage prospects—and none of them include love, it seems. But when a dashing young duke begins to pursue her, Caroline has second thoughts. Caught between ambition and desire, Caroline may gamble her heart away without even realizing it.
My review: This book is a cute, clean, regency romance. Something I really liked about this book is that it isn't your normal Duke gets the girl story. This one has a plot line that is different from all of the other regency romance books I've read and that's a good thing!
This book has almost 2 plots in it, it kind of flashes back to Caroline's mom and dad's love story and I loved the way that one gets resolved in the end. I also liked that their stories mirror each other a little bit and they're able to learn from each other's situations.
I liked Caroline, she's the strong younger daughter of Lord and Lady Hopkins. I liked the way that she thought for herself in an era where that was really looked down upon by pretty much everyone. There's a scene in the book where she kind of runs away from the groom who is supposed to stay with her while she's on her ride. I really liked that she did things like that, no matter that she knew her mom was not going to be at all happy about it.
I also liked that you're able to see this story from the point of views of both of the love interests of Caroline. That makes it a little harder to be able to tell just which of them she's going to choose in the end.
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
