Say Yes to the Marquess by Tessa Dare

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ I fell in love with Rafe the minute he said that he found Clio to be his personal distraction. I just loved the fact that he’s wanted her since forever. Clio was an interesting heroine, spunky, fun and full of life. I also loved her sister Phoebe. I would enjoy a story about her, as she would make a unique heroine. Also, I can’t forget Bruiser. He cracked me up! This story had a great cast of characters.   Rafe was a bit too hard on himself and at times I wanted to smack him for not giving himself more credit.. however, that part played well into his character so I could forgive it. 

This is the second book in the “Castles Ever After” series, but you do not need to read them in order as they are only connected by the fact that both heroines were given a castle from the Earl of Lynforth. However, I do recommend the first book as well.

To Purchase:

Here's the blurb:

Your presence is requested at romantic Twill Castle for the wedding of Miss Clio Whitmore and . . . and . . . ?

After eight years of waiting for Piers Brandon, the wandering Marquess of Granville, to set a wedding date, Clio Whitmore has had enough. She's inherited a castle, scraped together some pride, and made plans to break her engagement.

Not if Rafe Brandon can help it. A ruthless prizefighter and notorious rake, Rafe is determined that Clio will marry his brother—even if he has to plan the dratted wedding himself.

So how does a hardened fighter cure a reluctant bride's cold feet?
● He starts with flowers. A wedding can't have too many flowers. Or harps. Or cakes.

● He lets her know she'll make a beautiful, desirable bride—and tries not to picture her as his.

● He doesn't kiss her.

● If he kisses her, he definitely doesn't kiss her again.

● When all else fails, he puts her in a stunning gown. And vows not to be nearby when the gown comes off.

● And no matter what—he doesn't fall in disastrous, hopeless love with the one woman he can never call his own.
