Miss Katherine Danvers is a desperate wallflower Her family is on the brink of financial ruin and it is up her to save her mother and sisters from a life of indignities So she transforms herself into the incomparable Kitty Danvers the fiancée of the enigmatic and reclusive Alexander Masters Duke of Thornton once dubbed the mad bad 425 couple goals starsLove me some Stacy Reid so I paid the full price for this one when it came out because I couldn t wait for a sale after I read the blurb and saw some of the reviews This book is the first in a new series by one of my favorite HR authors she always delivers my musts in books and it features a group of 5 women who have labeled themselves Sinful Wallflowers the only problem is that none of them have ever done anything remotely sinful but they are determined to change that Katharine Danvers Kitty to her friends and family is the eldest of 4 daughters When their father passed away the estate and monies went to the nearest male relative so Kitty and her sisters along with her mother were essentially cast out to live only on a meager dowager salary As there is no dowry Kitty has been overlooked for 4 seasons now and she won t allow that to happen to her younger sisters thus she is prepared to risk her own reputation in the hopes that it allows her siblings to secure matches to men who are titled have at least comfortable wealth on which to live and most importantly are by choice Ideally she hopes all of her sisters find love matches as she has given up that hope sitting on the shelf at 23 years old This dream for her sisters inspires her sinful deed to declare herself engaged to a duke And who better than the Duke of Thornton of whom no one has seen hide nor hair from for a decade There is little chance he will hear about it in the wilds of Scotland where he is said to reside and by the time her farce is played out Kitty hopes her debuting sister will have made a match that will keep her happy and secure and later allow for her to sponsor the younger girls in their debuts How can this plan possibly failAlexander Masters the Duke of Thornton has been a recluse for 10 years since the accident that claimed his parents lives and left him scarred and semi paralyzed Before the fire that took so much from him and his younger sister whom he risked his life to save he was entrenched in society and enjoyed the benefits he wrought as the heir to a dukedom Alexander was engaged to a diamond of the first water and they were declared a perfect match in every way but when he was maimed she could not bear to look upon him any longer and broke off the engagement Alexander was told by the doctors he has employed that he would never walk again but he has managed to do just that for a few hours each day not without pain but the feeling of some normalcy is well worth the effort to him And though he has defied some of the odds he has been informed that he is impotent and therefore unable to produce an heir Given his situation he has remained at the family estate in Scotland with his younger sister for the last 10 years He actively participates in politics via his letters and he has his friends argue his beliefs on the floor for him He also collects things from all over the world one he used to travel often but since his impairment has had to be satisfied with continuing to acuire items to add to his treasure room which is where he spends much of his time For Alexander there is little to live for and he is deeply lonely but he refuses to bow to his depression and he does not burden anyone with his concerns But when he receives congratulations from one of his solicitors on his engagement he is intrigued It isn t the first time that someone has claimed to be connected to him but they usually want money in this case the woman appears to only want to use his name Alexander is curious as to what she is about with this ruse so he decides to venture to London for the first time in a decade to meet this imposter When he is introduced at a ball Kitty is attending they will finally meet face to face and the sparks fly in several waysWhat I liked Kitty is a spirited young woman looking out for her family at any cost she is very likeable and though she knows it is wrong to carry out such a ruse she keeps a tally of expenses with the full intent of paying the duke back so her morals are solid Alexander is tough to crack he allows no one in but once the reader gets to know him better he is definitely swoon worthy Decent helping of steamy goodnessWhat I didn t like as much The main characters didn t meet until over 25% into the book I wish there had been time with them together bc they were very entertaining Alexander was a little too stubborn he eventually got there though Not as much steamy goodness as I usually get from Stacy Reid but given the plot points it made sense as to whyOverall I was not disappointed The main characters were refreshingly uniue and fun to watch spar with each other and of course they were given a very satisfying HEAPlot 45Main Characters 455Supporting Cast 455Steam Level 355Violence nothing graphicLanguage not egregiousPOV 3rdNote that steam level is not a rating so much as a how hot was it 05 clean 15 mild 25 sensual but nothing descriptive 35 now we re getting somewhere 45 yes please 55 they did EVERYTHING in this one y all
