They call him Chance, though in truth the Marquess of Fairlamb feels bitterly cursed: A long-ago family feud is standing in the way of his heart's desire. Lady Tempest is the daughter of his father's sworn enemy, the Marquess of Norgrave. She is beautiful, innocent, and utterly untouchable. But some seductions are just too good to resist...
Tempest is a woman of her own mind-and a true romantic who will overcome every obstacle to be with the man of her dreams. But the odds are against the handsome, wickedly charming Chance if he intends to win Tempest as his bride. Will he choose loyalty to his family-or risk everything he has for the woman he yearns for?
This is a Romeo and Juliet story. I have not read book 1, which is about their parents (and from other reviews I have decided that I sure do not want to read book 1. That is not romance to me.) Anyway, a total stand alone since duh book 1 is about their parents, and at the end we learn what happened with them and why there is a feud.
Tempest did not find a man last season. Her father is not happy but has another suitor in the wings for her.
Chance is the son of a Duke, he is a bit of a rake. But then he is young and not ready to settle down.
They meet, sparks fly. But dang it, their families are feuding and will not even be near each other. I was all, why are they feuding?!
The truth is dark.
I liked how he did not give up. He really wanted her (he does not know the Feud reason either.)
She was more careful, good for you, except for that one time.
And then they lived happily ever after!
I liked it. The future sure seemed bleak for them, and trust me, these families will not mingle even if their kids marry. But at least some are happy.
