4 Stars: I Really Liked It

Lord Stephen Clearbrook knows one way to clear his gambling debts with a wealthy businessman-by marrying his daughter. But Elizabeth Shelby wants nothing to do with this business arrangement, until she realizes that love may be in the cards after all.

My Thoughts:
Don’t you just love these covers?! Gorgeous. It was so relaxing and entertaining to read a beautiful and clean historical romance. I’m a sucker for historical romance! I dream of going to a ball with my husband where I can dress in a gorgeous ball gown and we can learn the old dances.

The first book told the story of Emily, the sister to four big brothers. This one was the story of the youngest brother Stephen, 24 years old. Stephen had a bit of a gambling problem. When a wealthy businessman had him cornered he was forced to become engaged to the man’s daughter. The story had some funny parts and some really frustrating parts! It was great! It was told from both Stephen and Elizabeth’s point of view. Elizabeth’s younger sister was so funny. She reminded me of the youngest sister in Little Women, so dramatic.

Another very entertaining book in the Clearbrooks series. If you love historical romances you’ll really enjoy this book!
