An Illicit Arrangement (The Gentleman Series #2) by Cecilia Gray, Book Review
Blurb from the novella:
Lord Lucas Willoughby earned his moniker as the Matchmaking Baron after his six engagements ended with each lady happily wed - to someone else. He swears off marriage proposals, until his headstrong neighbor proposes something else entirely.
Chastity Drummond has her sights set on a man who barely sees her as a woman much less a potential wife. She can't seem to get him on bended knee, but knows an engagement to the Matchmaking Baron will turn his head.
Lucas and Chastity's charade takes on a life of its. As feigned attraction becomes real, they wonder if they might already be perfectly matched.
Their illicit engagement will inevitably end in marriage – but to whom?
Cecilia Gray has done it again! An amusing and romantic regency story, An Illicit Engagement is a quick and easy read! Poor Lucas is known as the man who cannot make it to the altar, every woman leaves him for someone else! Chastity knows that the future of her father's shipping company rests in her ability to negotiate trade routes through an older single man. She needs Lucas to introduce her to that man. What they don't plan on is that together they might just fall in love! This is the second book in the Gentleman Next Door series, but you do not need to have read the first book to understand this one!
You can pick up An Illicit Engagement via Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
I received this book for free. This is my honest review.
