Iverson Brentwood, the Rake of Baltimore, returned to London with his twin with the hopes of building their shipping empire on home soil. What he's returned to is being fodder for the gossip mill because of his similar appearance to a certain member of society who is not his father. Hope of the gossip ceases ends when a poet by the name of Sir Phillip Crisp writes a parody of the Brentwood Twins return. Determine to instill the fear of Brentwood into the poet, Iverson stomps over to Chez Crisp and force the man to stop writing about his family.

Catalina Crisp has been holding her little family together by a hair. Her father, while a renown poet, has no head for business or managing money. That leaves Catalina to scrimp, save and beg to ensure they can stay in their home in the lifestyle her father wishes to live. It also means that when her father can't be bothered to finish a scheduled piece of work, she must finish it for him. Of course, covering for her father is what lead her to meet Iverson Brentwood.

Catalina was a woman who took care of everyone: her father, her aunt, the staff at her home, and always put herself last. That is until Iverson Brentwood. When he should have intimidated her, he intrigued her. She loved verbally sparring with him and knowing that she usually threw him off guard. But she also knew that he made her feel, even when they were debating, that she mattered.

Iverson was a man of action and was used to things going according to his plan. Catalina, of course, threw those plans off. But Iverson discovered that with Catalina he found someone who didn't care who he looked like or what he had done in the past, she simply enjoyed him for who he was. He found himself letting go of his anger towards her father and willing to go to whatever lengths necessary to find him simply because it would make her life easier.

A cute story with likeable, witty characters that have you turning the page awaiting their next verbal assault.
