A REPUTATION AT RISK
What woman in her right mind would say no to marrying the dashing Duke of Sedgemoor? Miss Penelope Thorne, that's who. She's known Camden Rothermere since they were children-and she also knows she'd bring nothing but scandal to his name.
Cam can hardly believe Penelope turned down his proposal. But if she wants to run off to the Continent and set the rumor mill ablaze, he can't stop her. Then her brother's dying request sends him to bring home the one woman he thought he'd finally gotten over.
The only way they'll both get back to London without their reputations in tatters is to pretend they're married during the journey. That means kissing like they mean it and even sharing a bed-until it becomes hard to tell where the game ends and true desire begins . . .
Miss Penelope Thorne very independent and wild and in love.
Camden Rothermere, Duke of Sedgemoor very stubborn and does not believe in love. He wants a marriage that is more an agreement-contract.
This book was a little slowing moving at times, but overall not too bad. Penelope took off traveling with her aunt to forget about the love of her life who does not return her love. Through her travels, she does cause scandal back in England. People believe things about her that just aren't true.
Camden, has his sights set on the "perfect" duchess but must return Penelope back to England per her brother's request. Still a cynic about love, has a lot to learn.
This book follows the same path a lot of Historicals do, some parts were just very typical to the genre.
I received my copy from netgalley.com for review.
