     Another awesome read!

     In this next installment to the Wylder Sisters, Lizzie has an arranged marriage too by her father when she was very young to the Duke of Hawkesworth. Since she is the "wyldest" of the sisters and the most passionate, her mother is afraid that this will consume her marriage fast and make her unhappy.

     Hawke has come from Italy for the sole purpose of marrying Lady Elizabeth Wylder before her 19th birthday for not doing so means losing his money. What he hadn't counted on was that his young vivacious wife was not tainted by London society and that she would share his interest in art and meet his passion with her own.

     Once they see beyond what is expected of them by society and from each other, they'll see that their love is stronger than they think and that you can never be someone you're not. You can have an example with which to guide you but you can't expect it to be exact.

     I love the playfulness in Hawke and that he didn't care (well mostly didn't care) what society had to say about obligations and decorum and that Lizzie only wanted to please her husband but that in no way made less a woman.

     I can't wait to read the next story as it contains roguish Duke of Sheffield and we get a small glimpse of him at the end of this book!!
