Jessica McGale’s family business desperately needs investors and she’s determined to succeed at any cost. But she knows London’s elite will never look twice at a humble farm girl like herself.

His influence and support could save her company, but Jess never expected the effect he’d have on her.

Society thinks Noel is a notorious, carefree duke who dabbles in investments, but there’s a side to him that only his closest friends see. When he crosses paths with Lady Whitfield at a business bazaar, his world tilts on its axis. She’s brilliant and compelling, and brings him to his knees like no woman has before. Trust is difficult for Noel, but Jess makes him believe anything is possible. . .

As time ticks down on her Cinderella scheme, the thought of achieving her goal at Noel’s expense breaks Jess’s heart. He doesn’t just want her now, he wants her forever. But will her secret end their future before it begins

Book number 2 of The Union of the Rakes series was such a fun read! The characters are very charming and have everything I have come to expect from Eva Leigh’s leading couples. I love how even though this book is part of a series it can 100% stand alone. This book follows the story of a young lady’s companion as she fights to save her family business. She has determination, drive, and brains, now if only she had an investor. Her search for that investor leads her to the Marquess of Trask’s Bazaar and the very handsome Duke of Rotherby. Willing to do anything to save McGale & McGale Soap she risks it all to gain entry to the Bazaar. Will her risks pay off or will her truth be discovered causing her to lose it all? Jessica McGale, lady’s companion to Lady Catherton, made a promise to her mother on her deathbed that she would take care of her siblings and make the family business a success. That was before a fire destroyed 1/3 of the farm and her plans for expansion. Her role as lady’s companion takes her to London where she is determined to use the limited amount of time she has to find the investor she desperately needs to save their business.

After being turned down by every shop owner on Bond Street she reaches a new level of desperation. Her last hope is the Marquess of Trask’s Bazaar, an exclusive event where business owners present their business or their product in front of a select group of investors. But presentations are by invitation only and she hasn’t been invited. To gain entry she will dress in Lady Catherton’s clothes and pretend to be an investor and find a way to pitch her business to the Bazaar. The last thing she needs is to be distracted by an incredibly handsome Duke. Will she be able to hold it all together and save her business or will she be discovered and lose it all? Noel Edwards, Lord Clair, Duke of Rotherby, is known for his sound investments, financial prowess, and his rogue lifestyle. Although he has more money than he will ever need he makes it a point attend the Marquess of Trask’s annual investor Bazaar if for no other reason than to use his wealth to positively influence London’s fiscal future.

Days before the Bazaar he encounters the most intriguing woman on Bond Street, a woman who didn’t just agree with him because he is a Duke, but was able to defend his opinion on a matter of finance. Unable to get her off his mind, the last place he expected to see her again was as an investor at the Bazaar. He is determined to get to know her better and to win her over. Little does he know that her game of cat and mouse is not an attempt to play hard to get but really her determination to stay focused on business at hand. Will he lose his heart to her or will her true identity be too much for him to see past?

I liked this book so much and it was such a joy to read! I hope you all like it as much as I did.
