Review

In New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, Tessa Dare’s second book in her Castles Ever After series, SAY YES TO THE MARQUESS, Miss Clio Whitmore dreams of inheriting a castle.

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. Ladies 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.

…it is a definite must have…

Really, what little girl doesn’t dream of one day inheriting their very own castle and meeting a handsome prince? In the case of Miss Clio Whitmore, she is perfectly thrilled when the first part of that dream happens but, after eight years of waiting for her prince to return and claim his bride, she’s ready to skip that last part entirely.

Unfortunately, she must first break the contract that binds them and since the princely Piers Brandon is nowhere to be found, Clio must convince his prizefighter brother Rafe to sign the necessary papers instead.

A tale of long-standing secret devotion, repressed desires and strong loyalties blended together with lots of lovely angst, witty banter, thwarted & comically misguided plans and a romantic chemistry that’s so potent your reading glasses will get steamy, it is a definite must have.
