Lady Eve's Indiscretion (The Duke's Daughters, #4) (Windham #7) by Grace Burrowes

Lady Eve's Got The Perfect Plan

Pretty, petite Evie Windham has been more indiscreet than her parents, the Duke and Duchess of Moreland, suspect. Fearing that a wedding night would reveal her past, she's running out of excuses to dodge adoring swains. Lucas Denning, the newly titled Marquis of Deene, has reason of his own for avoiding marriage. So Evie and Deene strike a deal, each agreeing to be the other's decoy. At this rate, matrimony could be avoided indefinitely...until the two are caught in a steamy kiss that no one was supposed to see.

3.5/5 stars

I'm actually giving this book 3.5 stars.  As this was my first Grace Burrowes book I wasn't sure what to expect.  I felt a little lost and not because I picked up a book that is in not one but two series, but because half the time I didn't know some of the places that I was obviously suppose to know or some of the people, who I would've known had I read the previous books.  I couldn't keep the names and couples straight, again if I had read the series I would've known them, so that was my own fault.  As to the plot of this book I enjoyed it , but found some parts kinda dragged on.  Yes, we know Eve had a terrible fall from a horse while running from her was explained quite a few times.  I also didn't understand why he was trying so hard to get his niece away from her father.  I understand it was a death bed promise, but it wasn't like the father was beating or starving the girl.  She was well taken care of and loved.  So what was the problem?  And for someone who was ashamed and scared for anyone to find out she wasn't pure, Eve sure threw herself at Deene an awful lot.  The book wasn't to bad, but I won't be rereading it.
