He smiled as he wondered what had set them off this time. When he stepped into the entry to see his father fleeing full speed up the stairs, his smile faltered. He thought to follow his father upstairs. He’d seen very little of Bartholomew since he’d arrived a few days earlier. But perhaps he should first find out what the resident doxies had been up to. He walked to the dining room, where the Crimson Ladies worked, and poked his head in the doorway. Sadie’s voice rose about the din of chatter and laughter.

When two friends are found in a compromising situation, their marriage of convenience turns into something neither was looking for ... and something neither can live without.

Nicholas Parrish wakes one morning to pounding at the front door of his London townhouse. Standing before him is the irate father of Prudence Armitage and several of her scowling brothers. They accuse him of compromising Prudence, and to his astonishment the woman in question walks out of his study, looking as if she's just been roused from her bed! Prudence had a tiring night putting the finishing touches to The Ladies' Fashionable Cabinet, the magazine she and Nicholas, along with his sister Edwina, have been working on.

With Edwina on an extended wedding trip, Prudence had wanted everything to be perfect. But she fell asleep at her desk, and when she walks out of the office and sees her family ready to murder the man she had secretly had a crush on, Prudence is appalled. And when a marriage is forced between them, she is devastated. The damage is done, though, and now she's determined to make things right between herself and her new husband . . . by making him fall in love with her.

For all the years Prudence Armitage had worked for Nicholas and his sister at "The Ladies Fashionable Cabinet", he'd never really gotten to know, the shy mousy looking young woman who diligently worked by their sides. Rather he took her for granted, almost like a second sister. Now that his sister had left for an extended honeymoon, Prudence assumed Edwina's editorial duties. Late one evening Nicholas casually mentioned that she was working too hard, putting in too many hours, and assured that she was leaving soon he continued out the door for a night of entertainment. However, the next morning when he was rudely awakened by an enraged father and a horde of `viking-like giants' demanding satisfaction for ruining his daughter and their sister who had never arrived home the night before - Nicholas realized they were speaking of Pru who'd fallen asleep at her desk! Being a true gentleman, he would of course, do the right thing and offer her marriage though it was the furthest thing from his mind with Prudence being the least likely of candidates.

Prudence, was horrified - having been in love with Nicholas since the very first day she'd met him. Yet, married they'd be - the very next day!

With the help of Flora, a retired demimonde and `fashion editor' of the paper, and the Crimson ladies, Prudence, began to reveal qualities that gave Nicholas food for thought. Soon Nicholas was regretting his plans for an`in-name-only'marriage, and was formulating plans to make Pru his wife in all ways.

*** This was a delightful finale to the charming Ladies Fashionable Cabinet trilogy featuring, Nicolas and Prudence. Uniquely stand-alone this was a look at a marriage forced upon two individuals who in appearance were as different as night and day. Nicolas, the too handsome for his own good, charming, outgoing personality while Pru the complete opposite - small in stature, embarrassingly shy, and relatively content to blend into the background while letting others shine. What was unique was that she didn't turn into a swan overnight, rather making the most of her other attributes. While Nicholas did fall in love/lust with her, it was more for the beautiful person he saw, while her looks, which truly were never that bad once she removed all the accoutrements she used to hide them, revealed a more subtle beauty. The humor was charming as Pru tried to put into practice the lessons of flirting and seduction received from Flora and the Crimson ladies - suffice it to say, Pru didn't turn into a seductress. What was really important though, was how Pru came to realize that as `perfect' as she thought Nicholas was, she finally discovered he wasn't and she had gained enough confidence to give him a wake up call when she pointed it out to him. This was truly a divine read, a slow, yet very moving and truly romantic experience. --- Marilyn, for [...]

When I read Stephanie Laurens, Karen Ranney, and Julia Quinn, I am able to picture and feel the wonders of the Regency period; the colors, sounds, music and even the taste of the food. When I struggled through this book, everything felt drab; there was no color, no wonder, everything was brown and grey, lifeless and sad. The dreary repetition just to fill space, was frustrating. The world is a bit dark right now, and we need uplifting, charming stories of bright, lovely ballrooms, hopeful people overcoming the harshness of the time, not the depressing side of life. If I want a horror story all I have to do is turn on Fox news.

A forced marriage between a handsome young man and a small shy young lady, sounds good? Was quite boring off and on. Would have liked to hit the young man over his head a few times and as for the young lady, no one is that shy. Give me a break, she was the granddaughter of a duke, had her own money, was in her late twenties and had a JOB. Since I was able to finish the book, I gave it an okay. There were several $ in my e-version, irritating.

I rated this book a 4 because I enjoyed it so much. However, it didn't have that extra surprise twist that would have made it a 5.
Prudence Armitage had a few hidden secrets that were revealed as the plot progressed.
The hero, Nicholas, and the heroine, Prudence were both very likeable people. Her father caught them in awkward (but innocent) circumstances.
Read the book to find out how it was all resolved.

By and large I like Candace Hern's books, although occasionally she writes a clunker.

In this book the characters are well-developed, but the heroine is a wimp. Why do all these women feel that being compromised even when they haven't done anything means they have to get married? How about telling society to take a flying leap instead. Then she continues being a wimp after she's married.

The hero, although he supposedly believes in rights for women, is unable to treat his wife as an equal. This leads to a conflict at the end of the book. Is the conflict resolved by examination of his actions and principles? No, a solution falls from the sky.

This was my first by Candice Hern, and regretably I was disappointed. I have read all of Nicole Jordan, Lisa Kleypas, Gaelen Foley, Sabrina Jeffries, and many more. This book didn't have any sexual tension to speak of. The hero was a sweet idiot and the heroine was a plain dowd. Not enough chemistry for me and quite frankly, not enough romance.
