Publisher's Summary

USA Today best-selling author Vivienne Lorret continues the Mating Habits of Scoundrels series with a debutante who believes she is destined to marry the lord next door until a fateful encounter with a rogue makes her wonder...if she might be falling for the wrong marquess!

The wrong place....

Elodie Parrish can feel spinsterhood breathing down her neck. That’s the trouble with waiting for the marquess next door her entire life. But Ellie knows if she gives him one last Season, he’ll finally propose. The only problem is, her path keeps crossing with the arrogant Lord Hullworth, who is convinced she has designs on him. 

The wrong time....

Brandon, Marquess of Hullworth, never wanted to be “London’s Most Elusive Bachelor”, or have a horde of hopeful debutantes and their scheming mamas follow him around. His past has left him too jaded to consider marrying any of them. At least, that’s what he thinks...until he meets Ellie. She’s quirky, opinionated, blushes easily, and drives him absolutely wild. The only problem is, she believes she’s in love with someone else. 

Ellie never imagined that one sultry summer could change everything. But the more time she spends with Brandon researching her book on the mating habits of scoundrels, the more she starts to fall for....

Just Awesome!

The opening/prologue of this book was the best I've read/heard in a very long time. I was enamored of the heroine and was rooting for her from then on. The hero was equally interesting and loveable once we understood how he came to be who he came to be. The writing was witty and thoughtful. I haven't laughed out loud so much while reading/listening to a book in quite some time. Can't wait to read the rest of Lorret's work!

Enjoyable and well performed 3rd book

As usually, Justine Eyre does a fantastic job in narrating. Enjoyable read with a few twists and turns. Sets the reader up nicely for the fourth book. Overall well written and narrated.

No as good as the others

unfortunately I didn't find this one as compelling or interesting as the others even though it had the Bachelor from previous books as the main character. it was just kind of not interesting

My goodness this series is good

This was utterly delightful, just like the previous two books. Ellie and Brandon were sweet and strange (shades of Ten Kisses here and there) and the tension was brilliant. I really liked how dreadful George was and how vibrant the Aunts and Meg were. Vivienne Lorret is a favourite HR writer of mine, but sometimes I find her final acts drag—not this one! It was refreshing, particularly since Ellie is the one that messes up and has issues to work through, and the epilogue was fun. I had a feeling as soon as Lord Savage was mentioned he was going to get a book... and boy do I hope Pru and him are the next one. Also maybe Meg’s spark with Daniel in Ten Kisses will come to fruition too in their own book... either way, this was lovely and it sowed the seeds for more delight in the near future. Justine Eyre always bring’s Lorret’s writing to life perfectly. Highly recommend this installment and the entire series!

A good story but way too long

I enjoyed listening to this story, especially with Justine Eyre as the narrator, however I started losing interest towards the end as it seemed to drag on. The heroine seemed so stupid at times, almost an airhead, with something that was so obvious. Anyway apart from that it was an enjoyable listen.
