All of London was abuzz over the imminent arrival of the reclusive, cold-as-ice Duke of Bewcastle. Though they said he was so aloof and passionless that not even the greatest beauty could capture his attention, one woman does just that, and she was the only female in the room who wasn't even trying.

Hands down, this is my favorite Mary Balogh book. There are many romance series that I think you can fairly easily read out of order (though I, as a reading-order purist, rarely do so), but this is not one of them. This is the story of Wulfric, the oldest of the six Bedwyn siblings but the last one to get his happily-ever-after, but so much subtle work of character development has been done in the first five books that you'd really be losing out on something by reading this book as a standalone. "That I am also Wulfric Bedwyn" is a line in this book, and it is the best, most succinct, most perfect summary of the payoff of six books of growth in six simple words that I've ever read. If you love historical romance, you need to read this series -- and this is the most satisfying romance of the bunch. (Also, it's one of the better loose Pride & Prejudice retellings I've ever read.)

Really enjoyed this love story which surprisingly was more about the male character and his flaws than the damsel in distress.

Wulfric's story is the best rendition of Darcy in Pride and Prejudice that I have read.
