Review by wyvernfriend
Duncan Pennethorne ran from his wedding with his prospective bride's sister-in-law and the resulting scandal has left him with a very bad reputation and when he literally bumps into Margaret Huxtable and she claims he's her fiance to save face with her ex-fiance and the man who asked her to marry a few times.She decides that he has to make an effort to woo her, he needs a wife and she would like a marriage, both of them have been heartbroken and have had to make sacrafices for other people and both of them are willing to learn from their pasts. I liked it, the characters were fun and interesting and they came across as being quite real.
