I view the opposites-attract trope in romance fiction with trepidation. While I appreciate that the conflict in such stories will be strong and organic, too often the book leaves me doubting whether reconciliation between such different people is possible...Sigh! I’m a believer. Happily ever after all the way.

Synopsis

They couldn't be more different—but there's one thing they agree on . . .

In London after a two-year exile, Lord Blakeney plans to cut a swathe through the bedchambers of the demimonde. Marriage is not on his agenda, especially to an annoying chit like Minerva Montrose, with her superior attitude and a tendency to get into trouble. And certainly the last man Minerva wants is Blake, a careless wastrel without a thought in his handsome head.

The lights and din of her debutante ball set Minerva's teeth on edge. Surely a moment's rest could do no harm . . . until Blake mistakes her for another lady, leaving Minerva'sguests to catch them in a very compromising position. To her horror, the scandal will force them to do the unthinkable: marry. Their mutual loathing blazes into unexpected passion but Blake remains distant, desperate to hide a shameful secret. Minerva's never been a woman to take things lying down, and she'll let nothing stop her from winning his trust . . . and his heart.

I can see why she eventually falls for him, but I'm not so sure why he ever falls for her.

This was a truly enjoyable read. It’s always fun to watch two people who despise each other go head-to-head. It’s especially fun when it’s well done, and in this case it very much is.

This was my first Miranda Neville book. I am happy to say that it won’t be my last and I am pretty committed to marathon reading this whole series when I get a chance. If all of her rakes are like Blake then I will be a very happy girl.

Overall it was a good story that was enjoyable. I stayed up late reading it one night so it obviously had something that kept me interested. Anyone who loves a forced marriage to avoid scandal would definitely like this one.
