The Madison sisters are back to find a happy ending for the last among them yet to be married. We first met Lisa back in The Countess
and it was obvious, even then, that Robert would be the man for her. Unfortunately, Robert is the only one who doesn't see it.
Two years have passed since the events of the last book. And while Lisa has grown older, Robert still sees her as a little sister. Lisa is tired of waiting for him to come around so she decides that she will finally come out and choose another man to focus her affections upon --her search is on for a husband.
Before she can put her plan in action, she is drugged by a local madam and nearly handed over to a mysterious "suitor." Thankfully, Robert saves the day at the last minute, but the suitor gets away without making his identity known. Now Robert must keep Lisa safe until he can ferret out who is after her. And of course, that means he gets a front row seat for her husband hunt.
It doesn't take long for Robert to began seeing Lisa differently. I really liked watching him succumb to his desires for her. But he had some decidedly lame reasons why he wouldn't get married, which kind of annoyed me. Lisa's impetuousness bordered on stupidity once or twice, putting her in unnecessary dire straits. And unfortunately, the identity of the suitor was really obvious from early on. Overall though, I did enjoy the book. Lynsay Sands injects humor into her romances, which I like. And the sex was good. I also liked that Sands managed to ultimately tie in the dangerous "suitor" part of the storyline with the plots of the previous books.
We do get our happy ending --and a satisfying conclusion to the series. 3 1/2 stars.*ARC Provided by NetGalley
