This was so much better than the second book in the series. Renalto is a man that takes his family responsibilities seriously and wants to make sure that his younger brother is settled and ready to provide an heir for the family. He himself, has no intention of marrying...He likes the status quo of one adoring woman after another.

There is just one problem to his plan, he falls in love with his brother's fiancé. This is a fun, quick read...

sweet romance, but i found myself losing interest in the middle (especially when the h started 'negotiating' marriage terms with her soon to be m-i-l). The ending though, was special and i liked how they confessed their love for each other.

This novel was purely delightful. I have to say I enjoyed all aspects about it and was so pleased with the ending. It was worth reading and gave me a feel good feeling afterwards. I would definitely spend the time to read it again.

3.5 stars. This felt too long, and it didn't totally grab me the whole time for some reason. Still, it was readable with a good conclusion.
