This is my third Loretta Chase book. I have tried loving her work, since it was so strongly recommended to me, but I can't. This one involves the oldest Carsington brother, the widowed Benedict, and the improbably named Bathsheba Wingate, who morphs improbably from having made an imprudent but loving and faithful marriage into suddenly being the most notorious woman in England. They chase around together after her daughter and his nephew, insensibly ignoring every precaution and then being surprised when scandal ensues. Following a deus-ex-machina ending involving the omniscient and omnipotent Lord Hargate, a hasty marriage improbably sweeps all social problems away. In short, the book is improbable.

It's a measure of the effectiveness of Chase's dialog and the hotness of her sex scenes that I remain curious about the romances of the other two Carsington brothers.
