The Duke of Ravenwood has always wanted to marry for love, the one concession he'll give to himself over his duchy. Katherine Ross doesn't want anything to do with husbands, especially if that involves the risk of children. But when the two of them find themselves compromised into marriage they have to learn to live with their fate...

These two! The pair of them were at each other's throats almost constantly during the first part of the book. It was one of those situations where they were both evidentally attracted to each other but wanted to deny that for reasons completely their own. It helped add to the tension between them as the book wore on.

On the surface it didn't look like Ravenwood and Katherine would fit well together, but before long it became more and more clear that the two of them actually made a good team. They were both thoughtful and liked to show people that they cared, and they were both easily hurt. It took the two of them a while to get into a groove in their marriage.

I had several "awwww" moments in this book over sweet things the two main characters did for each other. Their relationship had a good depth and I felt that I really got to know the two of them better than some of the other characters in the series. That could be down to the fact that the two of them have already played roles in previous stories though!

This was a great ending to a fun series that us great for those moments where you want something sweet and enjoyable!
