Felix vows never to fall in love long time ago. He is hailed as the master of entertainment and is celebrated for his charm and wit. He never thought agreeing to help his best friend’s sister would result in a mutual attraction so intense that it rocked his World.

Sarah just wanted to live her days in peace. She’d given up on finding a suitable match for herself but apparently her parents had not. With an ultimatum to find a suitable groom, Sarah seeks the help of her brother’s friend Felix. But she wasn’t prepared for the attraction that coursed through them whenever they were in each other’s proximity.

Two people who are world’s apart. Can they find love and solace in each other?

I love Felix and I love Sarah. These two are different but definitely 100% made for each other.

I loved Felix’s bad boy only parties vibe and I love that he was so much more deep that that. I had been waiting to see how his story would pan out and I am so happy with it. It’s always such a glee to see a character who is so against love, falling hard. I get such a sick satisfaction from that.

Sarah is a remarkable woman who was def ahead of her time. I love her need to be independent and but also this wish of marrying only for love and having a partner who would treat her like an equal. I am so happy she got the HEA she deserved.

I am a little bummed that this is the last story in this series but super excited to see what’s next. Darcy Burke never disappoints.

4 Stars!

After witnessing how love embittered his uncle and broke his father, Felix Havers, Earl of Ware vows never to love. He conceals his emotions behind a wall of wit and charm, and is celebrated as the master of entertainments—parties, picnics, races. When his best friend’s wallflower sister needs to find a husband, he promises to make her the toast of London… without losing his heart.

Miss Sarah Colton has given up on the pursuit of marriage. When her parents learn she intends to open a millinery shop, they give her an ultimatum: choose a husband or they’ll do it for her. She accepts Felix’s help, never imagining their scheme will ignite a mutual attraction neither of them dare indulge. But when tragedy strikes, can they heal each other or will the demons of Felix’s past consume them both?
