by Julia Quinn
Sir Richard Kenworthy must find a bride, and he has less than a month to do so. How will he ever find someone so quickly?
Enter Iris Smythe-Smith: she’s pretty, she’s single, and she’s playing the cello in the upcoming Smythe-Smith musicale. Perfect!
Yes, that’s right, even Sir Richard knows how desperate those Smythe-Smith girls are. But he is not entirely heartless. He is actually attracted to Iris and impressed with her musical talent.
So, they marry within a month’s time, and that’s where Sir Richard’s secrets come into play. Why must he marry? What awaits Iris in her new marriage and home? Will Sir Richard’s secrets change the way Iris feels about him?
You’ve got to read this to find out!
Overall, I enjoyed this novel. The secrets were not so terrifying, but definitely worth concealing. I liked Iris, and I liked Sir Richard. And I do like Quinn’s decision to write about the Smythe-Smith women.
