The second novel in New York Times bestselling author Karen Hawkins’s sparkling Duchess Diaries series features a young woman desperate for a wealthy marriage, a prince who pretends to be poor, and a meddling godmother.
Lily Balfour has spent her entire life under the shadow of financial ruin, and she’s determined to save her family in the only way available to women—by marrying well. When the Duchess of Roxburghe, Lily’s godmother, announces she’s found the perfect match for Lily, the handsome, dashing, and extremely wealthy Earl of Huntley, Lily hopes they’ll fall wildly in love, marry, and that his wealth will save her family. But when Prince Pietr Wulfinski, the poorest of the Russian princes, walks into the Duchess’s ballroom and sweeps a hot, possessive glance over her, Lily knows she’s in big trouble. Marry the safe, handsome, and wealthy Earl, or the dangerous, rakish, but poor Prince? To make the right choice, Lily must decide if she’ll listen to her heart or her head…

At the beginning of the book, I felt like I had read this before.
But then... well it still felt familar but I hadn't read this book before.
The story was pretty good.
Wulf is very forward and demanding. And Lily, well she knows what she has to do but her heart is wanting something else.
Overall, not too bad. More like 3.5 stars
