Love won't get her into London's most consequential parties, nor prevent her sisters from being snubbed and looked down upon - all because their besotted father unadvisedly married an actress. But a noble husband for Kate would deliver a future most suited to the grandaughter of an earl. Armed with ingenuity, breathtaking beauty, and the help of an idle aunt with connections, Kate is poised to make her dreams come true. Unfortunately, a familiar face - albeit a maddeningly handsome one - appears bent on upsetting her scheme. Implored by Kate's worried father to fend off the rogues eager to exploit his daughter's charms, Nick Blackshear has set aside the torch he's carried for Kate in order to do right by his friend. Anyway, she made quite clear that his feelings were not returned - though policing her won't abate Nick's desire. Reckless passion leads to love's awakening, but time is running out. Kate must see for herself that the charms of high society are nothing compared to the infinite sweet pleasures demanded by the heart.… (lisätietoja)

I totally get that two people in a heated interaction can be both angry and attracted, maybe even especially so, but it never rings true for me the whole 'You're the worst! I'll show you, I'll kiss you! That'll really teach you a lesson!' thing. I'm sure it's trying to play with tension, most often they've never kissed before, angst maybe? =/ And it might be different if they both paused in the midst of their conflict, realizing they'd rather be doing something else besides arguing, and then started in. But forcing a hard, angry kiss on someone right when they're angriest with you just seems especially violating. It's probably legally assault or something. Let's maybe just retire this old cliche. Surely we've come far enough we can stop spinning 'forced sexual act as punishment' as desirable. ~Obviously romantic aggression is fine if both parties have agreed to it, consensual, it's whatever works for you! Fine story otherwise. ( )

Sweet, but the plot was not strong enough to prevent me from skipping some parts. It was lovely to see Nick and Will reconcile after their falling out in the previous book. ( )

So, I don't have much energy for a review, but saw that there were all kinds of them from friends, so I'll leave it at that unless I get inspired. ( )

Horrors of horrors! No, not the book. I just realized that I’ve read this book way back when it first got out, however I’ve never reviewed it! I honestly thought I did. If you are a reviewer, I know you’ll understand how this can happen. To say I’m embarrassed would be an understatement. I’d like to apologies to the author and to the publishing house, as well as to all of you because this book should have been on your TBR couple of years ago. Well, I guess that the old adage “Better late than ever!” definitely applies here ;)

This is yet another well written and plotted story from an author that is very new to me and that I seriously think will be someone who I must read, no matter what.

Her stories are fresh, poignant and extremely real. She thrives on creating characters that are flawed, yet redeemable in the readers’ eyes. I like the fact that Ms. Grant takes chances with creating characters who are unique and who you may not like at first, yet they are interesting and entertaining. They are meant to make me think and mull over the reasons behind the choices they make.

Both Kate and Nick had to work hard for me to like them, and in the end I did. I questioned many decisions these two made and I had a blast finding out what made them tick.

If you’ve never read this author, please try to remedy the situation. She is too good to be missed.

In the second book about the Blackshears, Will fell in love with and married another man's mistress. The reverberations of that action are still felt a year later, while his younger brother Nick tries to have a career as a barrister. Nick is smart and hardworking, but the shame his brother's marriage has brought to his name means that his advancement is limited. His good friend, Kate Westbrook, has a similar problem: her mother was an actress, and so no matter how blue blooded her father or beautiful and accomplished she may be, Society will never truly let her be part of it. They each want to climb socially, but they fall in love with each other--and marrying each other will not help either of them.

I liked this, though less than the first two books in the series. But I really appreciated the sideways method they eventually took to solving their problems: that genuine friendship, not just marriage, with those above them could help their causes. And I really liked seeing that the consequences of [b:A Gentleman Undone|12769479|A Gentleman Undone (Blackshear Family, #2)|Cecilia Grant|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1321933178s/12769479.jpg|17913980] were not lightly cast off; Nick is a man of his time and truly feels that his brother has done something dishonorable and deranged by marrying a fallen woman, and it is only through his own dishonorable actions that he understands that love is hard to control.
