Series The Disreputable DebutantesPublication Date 82520Number of Pages 320My favorite book of the series so far I absolutely loved both Olivia and Hamish in this beauty and the beast tale She is sweet giving and has a heart as wide as all England He is dour cantankerous standoffish and holds himself away from others The story is well written well plotted and the pacing is excellent A thoroughly enjoyable readWe ve learned of orphaned Olivia de Vere s trials with her misbegotten uncle and his family over the previous two books The only bright spot in her existence is her time she manages to steal with her friends Charlie Sophie How to Catch a Wicked Viscount and Arabella How to Catch an Errant Earl They don t ridicule her because of her stammer they just love her for who she isThings are getting very tense at the de Vere household Olivia s twenty first birthday is rapidly approaching and her guardians her aunt and uncle are pressuring her and to marry their son Felix to keep her fortune within the family They constantly denigrate her and assure that she knows she isn t good enough to receive any other offers Felix is a cruel mean spirited profligate who taunts Olivia at every turn When she discovers that Felix has been embezzling from her trust fund he threatens her in a way that lets her know she has to flee the sooner the better Lucky for her the opportunity presents itself and she grabs itHamish Macueen Maruess of Sleat has a scarred face from Waterloo but most of his scars are from much earlier in his life and they are on the inside Hamish knows he can never love or marry or even become close with anyone because he ll only harm them He s a violent person who can t be trusted not to hurt those for whom he cares At least that is his view of himself Those who know him know he is a kind giving person who always saves others So when he needs to get back to the Isle of Skye to save his sister and at the same time a lovely three year old little girl is dropped off on his doorstep he leaps at the offer from the girl who lives next door She ll travel with him to Scotland and be nursemaid to young Tilda who might or might not be Hamish s illegitimate offspringWhen circumstances along the road cause Hamish to offer a marriage of convenience to Olivia she accepts She wants a real marriage but he insists they ll only stay married until her twenty fifth birthday when she comes into her inheritance That is uite a bitter pill to swallow for romantic Olivia who wants the whole thing love marriage family all of itI loved how Olivia slowly figures Hamish out and does her best to help him even if he won t give their marriage a chance She has long admired him and it didn t take much to tip her over to loving him He also finds that he loves her but he cannot let himself act on it he has to protect herI loved their journey into their HEA This would easily have been a 5 star read for me except it committed one of my cardinal sins The villains of the piece got away totally free actually they got rewarded They had spent years abusing Olivia demeaning her ridiculing her threatening her and they get rewarded by Olivia and Hamish No I don t think so I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book All thoughts and opinions are my own
