The Marquess of Marsden always follows the rules. Expected from birth to adhere to decades of tradition, he plans to marry a proper young woman from a good family. But when a beautiful, and completely unsuitable, woman snags his heart, he begins to realize that to get what you want, sometimes you have to break the rules. Linnie Connor dreams of the independence of running her very own bakery. And while she may be allowed to be a marquess' childhood companion, the baker's daughter never ends up with the handsome nobleman. Determined to achieve at least one of her dreams, Linnie makes plans to leave her sleepy village for London, intent on purging him from her heart. And yet, when an invitation to the Marsden annual ball arrives, she can't refuse her one chance to waltz in his arms. It will be a night that stirs the flames of forbidden desires and changes their lives forever.

This novella is the fourth book of the Hellions of Havisham series, and if you've read the previous three (Falling Into Bed With a Duke, The Earl Takes All, and The Viscount and The Vixen), it's a must read. This is the beginning to end love story of George St. John, the Marquess of Marsden, and his one love, Linnie Connor. Although this story is a prequel of sorts to the other books in the series (George and Linnie are of the previous generation), it should be read after the other three since the characters are introduced and play a role in the other stories. Knowing how their story would ultimately end (as explained in The Viscount), I loved going on the journey with them to learn the rest of their story. Warning, though, have the tissues ready 'cause this one's a definite tearjerker!
