erupts at the pub Ashmont steps outside to shoot his pistol and put an end to the hijinks and inadvertently sends a carriage and its riders careening through the street Horrified he runs to help and watches the carriage tip over He s relieved when the redhead who was holding the reins sits up and then the woman next to her her maid stirs and also appears unharmed He s considering what to do next when the vaguely familiar red headed woman stands up begins insulting him and hits him with her hat knocking him off his feet Still drunk and now dazed and a little bit afraid he gets up and follows her to a man lying motionless near a tree Ashton immediately recognizes him It s Tom Keeffe a once successful jockey who survived a terrible accident that ended his career and Ashton is a fan They exchange greetings as Cassandra the redhead who seems vaguely familiar to Ashmont fumes until she finally silences the pair Ashton confused about why the woman is with Keeffe and uncertain what to do

and tells him to get up and make himself and his money useful badassCassandra Pomfret sometimes referred to as Medusa or deGriffith s Gorgon or Cassandra Prophet of Doom is intelligent and has Opinions Opinions she s also much to her father s chagrin unafraid to share WITH MEN When Ten Things I Hate About the Duke WOW THAT IS A LONG TITLE begins her plain speaking has gotten her into bigger trouble than usual Trouble with The Family Exasperated by her behavior and unwilling to tolerate it any longer her father issues an ultimatum he hopes will force her to change Hyacinth her beautiful beloved younger sister the belle of the season cannot marry until Cassandra does She also can t attend any of the events of the season The ultimatum saddens and infuriates Cassandra who with a gentle nudge from Hyacinth decides to get away from London and reassess how to move forward without hurting her darling sister who is remarkably kind about the whole thing From start to finish she s lovely So refreshing Cassandra is enroute to the home of her former governess accompanied by her maid and companion and friend Tom Keeffe He d taught her to ride and drive He d been with her from the time she was a troublesome girl of fourteen and he a crippled ex jockey of six and twenty For nearly twelve years she d relied on his wisdom and not only about horses when disaster strikes A group of men pour out of the Green Man onto the street and then a buffoon shoots his pistol into the air sending her horses into a frenzy Cassandra is cataloging her injuries and trying to sit up when she recognizes the man crouched next to her asking if she s okay It s the beautiful angel faced Duke of Ashmont the man she loved as a young girl until he proved unworthy of her affections The same idiot who just fought a duel with his best friend after his fiancee jilted him Well ShitOh friends This whole scene is a hot mess of Ashmont trying and failing to fix the GIGANTIC mess he s made and Cassandra awesomely putting him in his place I loved her I loved him I loved sweet Tom Keeffe who uickly does some romantic mental matchmaking and I loved how the carriage disaster sets these two on a path together Ashmont is no dummy he just acts like one in public All the Time He s a sexy badass who keeps making bad decisions but has finally realized that drinking and shenanigans are ruining his life He s also just met the one woman who gives as good as she gets Fortunately he has an uncle and his only living relative to help him out of his various messes but this time instead of fixing everything he gives Ashmont adviceand Ashmont follows itUnfortunately for Cassandra a single woman involved in a carriage accident while minimally chaperoned plus an infamous drunken duke plus an injured former jockey plus a missing maid plus an overnight visit in a small village at a local inn famed for the exploits of the three dukes who love to visit euals a disaster in the making Fortunately the drunken duke is super rich and keeps the rumors uiet but then he just can t stay away And then the real nightmare beginsASHMONT DECIDES HE WANTS HER TO BE HIS WIFE AND HE S SEXY AND HOT AND NICE AND KIND AND TRYING TO BE BETTER FOR HER And lucky for readers the only person who thinks Ashton s interest in Cassandra is a disaster is CASSANDRA well her dad too Ashton is IN LOVE And Cassandra used to love Ashton AND it is a battle of wits and sexy smirks and good smelling cologne and smart clever repartee and chemistry andfriends this novel is so much funLook the majority of this novel is a game of Cassandra trying to pretend she doesn t want Ashton to prove his love to her and Ashton slowly but surely figuring out the best way to do it He uickly realizes Cassandra is good to everyone but herself and he makes it his job to understand his prickly brainy lady love He reads Wollstonecraft learns about issues that are important to her and protects her from anyone and anything that aims to do her harm Oh yeah there are a couple of villains in this story too Ashmont and Cassandra are lovely together in every iteration enemies co conspirators friends and eventually lovers and it is a JOY to read yet another terrific Chase romance Readers expect the carriage disaster to prove the biggest impediment to love between Cassandra and Ashmont but it s a nice misdirection from this brilliant author It s the villains of this story that actually nudge the romance in the right sexy times direction and keep readers on their toes with their fingers crossed Great chemistry sparkling dialogue well developed principal characters and a lovely opposites attract pairing made my heart go BOOM These two are meant for each other and this book is a TREMENDOUS follow up to the eually good A Duke in Shining Armor Fans of the series will be very happyTerrific HIGHLY RECOMMEND Can t wait for the audioPS You want to know about Ripley and Olympia and the Duke of Blackmoor and Alice don t you I wish we spent time with them but their cameos are all to brief We still don t know what s up with Alice
