Review: The Marquess and the Maiden (Lords of Vice #2) by Robyn DeHart

The Marquess and the Maiden (Lords of Vice, #2)
Harriet Wheatley is the mastermind behind the Ladies of Virtue's quest to rehabilitate the gentlemen of the ton. So when it comes to selecting her own target, she knows who to choose: Oliver Weeks, Marquess of Davenport—the most extravagant wastrel in all of London.

Known for his opulent lifestyle, Oliver isn't surprised by Harriet's confrontation. It's obvious Harriet longs for any way to take him down a notch. She says she'll help him find a bride, but he knows it's only because it gives her the excuse to chastise his indulgent ways.

Oliver has good reason for his flagrant overspending, but Harriet will hear nothing of it. So he has no choice but to teach the lady a lesson, even if it means risking his heart to the hard-headed and fiery woman.
I loved it! It's a great story about two people who never really understand each other and always end up misinterpreting each other's intentions. But in the end they realize that it doesn't really matter as long as they have love, it's more than enough.

Harriett and Oliver are perfect for each other. They got their chance to get married but it was not the right time. Oliver didn't want to marry someone simply because he needed financial assistance. And Harriett was too shy, she herself wasn't ready to marry a broody lord like him. However, Oliver ended up hurting her pride and she decided not to trust a man ever again. Now, after uears Oliver is finally contemplating marriage seriously and all he can think about is Harriett. Unfortunately, she doesn't trust him at all and he must convince her before it's too late for them 

A great historical fiction that I'd definitely recommend to all historical fans. It has exactly the right amount of humor and romance to keep readers entertained.
