I was not familiar with Kieran Kramer when I first read this book but you can guarantee that she is on my must read list now! This is a great book and I have actually read it twice now. To be or not to be...a Spinster. That is the question and Lady Poppy Barnes-Smith most definitely has an answer for. She is and will always be a Spinster, unless true love comes her way. She has turned down over a dozen proposals all with the guise of a suitor that is on the verge of proposing, a fictitious peer named the Duke of Drummond. Unbeknownst to Poppy the Duke of Drummond is a real man who also happens to be a spy. The chance to use Poppy and a betrothal to further his agenda is a chance Nicholas Staunton, Duke of Drummond can not pass up. Can Nicholas convince Poppy that being a Wife is better than being a Spinster?
