Miss Katherine Danvers has always been a wallflower. But now, with her family on the brink of financial ruin, she finds herself a desperate wallflower. To save her family, she'll do anything. Luckily, she has the perfect plan...

She’ll impress the ton by simply announcing she is engaged to the reclusive and mysterious Duke of Thornton, Alexander Masters, and secure strong matches for her sisters. No one has heard from the duke in years. Surely he’ll never find out before her sisters’ weddings, and she can go back to her own quiet life.

Soon, though, everything is out of control. At first, it’s just a few new ball gowns on the duke’s accounts. Then, it’s interviews with reporters eager for gossip. Before she knows it, Katherine has transformed herself into Kitty Danvers, charming and clever belle of the ton—with everyone eager to meet her thankfully absent fiancé.

But when the enigmatic Alexander Masters suddenly arrives in the city, dashing and oh so angry, he demands retribution. Except not in the way Katherine expected…

Stacy Reid is one of my utmost favorite historical romance writer for a reason and this book by far is the best I have read from her.

Basically, I loved everything about this book and could not find any flaw that comes to mind. The plot of the book is reminiscent of Beauty and the Beast and quite honestly had Kitty did not explicitly say so in the book I would not have realized the similarity, I was quite daft to not see it.

Reading the plot unfold I was enraptured withe the blossoming friendship and romance between Kitty and Alexander, their companionship and banter with each other was so sweet to read. It was really nice to see that Kitty just accepted Alexander as he is and just intruded into his life as if they had been lifelong friends.

As you can see, the friendship between them is what got to me and not the sexual interlude between them. Don’t get me wrong I live for the sex scenes when reading historical romance but in this case I felt like the friendship between the two protagonist held my attention and feelings more.

There is nothing much to say in regards to the characters because I adored them. I found Alexander to be such a kind and sweet man and Kitty to be so entertaining whereby she does things to purposely annoy and tease Alexander and occasionally he would do the same to her.

I wanted to talk about one aspect of the book I immensely enjoyed but cannot reveal as it might be a spoiler but all I will say is that I liked how the author wrote Alexander’s flaw and made it consistent throughout the book. I really appreciated that.

In conclusion, I love this book. This book by Stacy Reid is by far my favorite that I have read from her as I am a sucker for friendship-romance type of plots. I highly recommend this book. Everybody should read it and please publishers if you read this. PLEASE LET ME READ THE NEXT ENTRY TO THE SERIES.
