Lady Clara, the fan-favorite character from Loretta Chase’s New York Times and USA Today bestselling Dressmakers series, finally gets her own happily ever after!

Convenient marriages are rarely so…exciting. Can society’s most adored heiress and London’s most difficult bachelor fall victim to their own unruly desires?

Biweekly marriage proposals from men who can’t see beyond her (admittedly breathtaking) looks are starting to get on Lady Clara Fairfax’s nerves. Desperate to be something more than ornamental, she escapes to her favorite charity. When a child goes missing, she turns to Oliver Radford—a handsome, brilliant, excessively conceited barrister.

Having unexpectedly found himself in line to inherit a dukedom, Radford needs a bride who can navigate the Society he’s never been part of. If he can find one without having to set foot in a ballroom, so much the better. Clara—blonde, blue-eyed, and he must admit, not entirely bereft of brains—will do. As long as he can woo her, wed her—and not, like every other sapskull in London, lose his head over her…

Clara is a beautiful young woman, tired of the big number of possible husbands that woo her only for her looks. She is determined to make everyone see that she is not only good looks, or an object, a trophy, that everyone has to obtain, in order to show her around.

Oliver has been one of the most difficult bachelors, not very interested in following the society's rules about when or whom he is going to wed. He appreciates Clara's beauty, but is taken aback from her intelligence. This particular trait of hers has overwhelmed him in more than one ways!

An inconvenient wedding for both of them must take place between them.

Both Clara and Oliver soon realize that it might prove to be more difficult than either of them imagined, to resist the temptation they both feel for each other.

A very nice read with a set of not-so-ordinary heroes, I deeply enjoyed reading about!

Clara is unlike the women of her time. She is not passive to the wills of others. She is clever, intelligent and determined to make herself important!

Oliver is the tempting bachelor all women probably swoon over, but at the same time inaccessible and dark, unwilling to succumb to society's standards.

While reading this novel, I could totally feel the sentiments the characters felt, thanks to the amazing way the author narrated their story! 
And, oh, the chemistry between the heroes! It was almost palpable and it totally blew my mind off!

All in all, 4 stars to a read that proved to 
be very meaningful and steamy at the same time!
