Sebastian Sinclair, the Duke of Wessex, is not in love with Eliza Benton—nor anyone else, for that matter. But he must marry and produce an heir, and love is not required for either. His future duchess must be of high birth and good nature, a lady unlikely to snipe at him over breakfast. In short, the complete opposite of Eliza. So who better to help him find a bride?
Eliza Benton is not in love with the Duke of Wessex. He’s infuriating, arrogant, and an ass of the first order. Not that she has any intention of marrying anyone now that her secret dream is on the cusp of becoming reality. A husband would ruin all her careful plans. But she’s all for finding her nemesis the perfect bride, anything to get him from underfoot so she can focus on her writing.
Thank goodness Sebastian and Eliza aren’t in love. That would be disastrous.
This book is part of a series, but each book can be read as a standalone. This is a slow burn friend to lovers romance. There is no drama or high jinks, it’s two people discovering that maybe they were meant to be together all along.
This was an entertaining read with well-developed characters. I especially enjoyed the witty banter between our two main characters. This is the conclusion of the wicked series, and while I haven’t read the first this series as a whole is entertaining, well-plotted with interesting characters, I highly recommend you give it a go.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
