There may be times when a gentleman is desperate to gain a lady’s attention, but a gentleman would never resort to desperate measures to obtain it.
―A Proper Gentleman’s Guide to Wooing the Perfect Lady

Sloane Knox, the Duke of Hawksthorn is guardian for his sweet, younger sister. Due to his misguided past as one of the infamous Rakes of St James, Hawk is hoping to avoid the Season by securing a match for her before it begins. He has the perfect gentleman in mind, but for one infuriating―and unexpectedly intoxicating―obstacle: the intended groom’s own sister, Miss Loretta Quick.

Having narrowly avoided her own arranged marriage to an unacceptable nobleman, Loretta is determined that her dear brother―a gentle, good-natured soul―should marry for love. Matching wits with Hawk may be her greatest challenge yet. . .until she realizes it may also be her greatest pleasure. For the young duke’s irresistible charm has not only begun to crumble her stubborn resolve, it has claimed her heart in true love as well. . .


Sloane Knox, the Duke of Hawksthorn is one of the Rakes of St. James.  He and his fellow rakes made a silly mistake when they we're young and somebody is making mischief because of it.  Because he has a sister about to make her debut Hawk wants to make sure she doesn't suffer for his actions.  He will arrange a marriage for her to an acceptable young man. 
Miss Loretta Quick has lived a very quiet life in the country since she jilted a man at the altar.  Her uncle who had arranged the marriage is punishing her for defying him.  She vowed that she would never marry.
Her younger brother does his best to keep her company as often as he can but life in the quiet countryside is not for such a happy go lucky young man. 
Our hero is a loving brother who knows where his responsibilities lay.  The females in his life must be protected at all costs. 
Our heroine is very softhearted and lonely. 
A sweet historical romance with characters you can't help but fall in love with. 
This is part of a series but each book can be read on it's own. 
A lovely light read.
