"When Lady Lydia Thornton is blackmailed over the shocking contents of a manuscript she once wrote, she must go to the most desperate of measures to raise the money to buy back the ill-considered prose: agreeing to an old wager posed by the arrogant, dangerous Duke of Penthurst. At least Penthurst is a man she wouldn't mind fleecing--and she's confident she'll win. Penthurst long ago concluded Lydia was a woman in search of ruinous adventure, but even he is surprised when she arrives at his house ready to bet her innocence against his ten thousand pounds--a wager he only proposed to warn her off gambling. When she loses to a simple draw of the cards, Lydia is shocked. Now, her problems are twofold: a blackmailer determined to see her pay and a duke determined to tame her rebellious ways. One misstep and Lydia could find herself ruined--or bound to the seductive man who would make her his duchess" --… (mere)

Lydia lives her life as a woman of the world according to her. Because of a novel she began several years earlier she is being blackmailed. Consenting to meet the blackmailer out of town she is compromised but rescued by Penthurst. He marries her and learns her grievance against him. When she discovers the truth she also discovers her true feelings for Penthurst.

About halfway through this book I thought, "Oh, no. Penthurst is going to suppress Lydia's bluntness and lack of foresight." That did not happen. The story actually got more interesting as Penthurst allows Lydia her freedom. She discovers what she felt was a golden memory is only a memory, not reality. When she figures out what happens her rose-colored glasses are removed. I liked Lydia. Being married did not suppress her natural vivaciousness or curiosity. She surprises Penthurst with her words and actions. The two grow together and their relationship is very believable.

The Southwaites, Amburys, and Kendale are part of the story. Southwaite and Ambury are very much into what is acceptable in society. Kendale just blurts out what he thinks. He remains my favorite of the quartet but Penthurst is a close second. It was a good story. A good closing to the series. ( )
