I thoroughly enjoyed this 3rd installment in the Huxtable sibling series.  It was a great summer read--entertaining and light but with enough substance that I wasn't wincing or rolling my eyes.  I did guess most of Duncan's big secret, but I did not predict the twist at the end.

Margaret Huxtable and Duncan Pennethorne are both 30 years old, which is a welcome change from the norm of historical romances and their 20-year-old heroines.  They both need to find a spouse in a hurry: Margaret, because she unwisely boasted to her ex that she had a secret engagement, and Duncan, because his grandfather is going to cut off his income if he's not married within 15 days.  Some secrets are kept a little too long; others are leaked too soon.  And at last comes love.  (*groan* Sorry! I couldn't resist.)
