Duff has made it very clear that he loves her but he will be leaving soon when he gets a better job offer. He is in love with Raina but they don't like the same things. Duff likes museums, Ballet, gourmet food, etc. Raina likes Burger King, movies and having a good time.
Duff worries about this vacation and he comes up with the excuse that his grandmother is dead to be able to leave work at the same time that Raina does. He follows her through most of their vacation. They both learn new things during the trip.
My personal opinion - Duff behaves more like a stalker. He doesn't give her time alone. What kind of relationship starts with so many lies?
Samantha Elliot is the owner of the matchmaking company. She used to be rich until her father embezzled money and they lost their fortune. The Duke is her ticket to increasing customers. She needs the money to maintain her sister in a facility. Her sister Jordan tried to commit suicide but instead had a stroke. She will need care for the rest of her life and it is expensive to maintain her there.
Sam impresses Blake with her professionalism. He decides to meet her again but instead of accepting one of the three girls Sam had shown him, he offers her a marriage proposal. He knows Sam needs the money and she takes the offer.
They are married but the paparazzi are all over them. They fly to Britain and meet his family. Soon they both are happy in the marriage. The question is are they going to be divorced in a year or they have found true love?
I really enjoyed this book.
Her Great aunt discovers that she has lost her diary at an enemy's home, Lady Marchman's School for Young Ladies. Kathryn assumes the identity of a teenager while trying to recover the diary. To her surprise Nigel's ward becomes her roommate.
Blackshire has placed his ward there to investigate a possible traitor exchanging secrets with France.
Funny situations prevailed.
