Everything has a price . . .

Railway magnate Tom Severin is wealthy and powerful enough to satisfy any desire as soon as it arises. Anything—or anyone—is his for the asking. It should be simple to find the perfect wife—and from his first glimpse of Lady Cassandra Ravenel, he’s determined to have her. But the beautiful and quick-witted Cassandra is equally determined to marry for love—the one thing he can’t give.

Everything except her . . .

Severin is the most compelling and attractive man Cassandra has ever met, even if his heart is frozen. But she has no interest in living in the fast-paced world of a ruthless man who always plays to win.

When a newfound enemy nearly destroys Cassandra’s reputation, Severin seizes the opportunity he’s been waiting for. As always, he gets what he wants—or does he? There’s one lesson Tom Severin has yet to learn from his new bride:

Never underestimate a Ravenel.

The chase for Cassandra’s hand may be over. But the chase for her heart has only just begun . . .


  • Sad to see them go.

    This is the last book of an excellent series. It’s sad to leave these characters behind. I have so enjoyed all of these books. Cassandra and Tom have a wonderful story to tell. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    A wonderfully written book with an ultimate message for the appreciation of the ways love shapes and embraces difference. Cassandra and Tom could not be more difference from one another - work views, ability to express feelings, and life goals. Yet, they manage to challenge each other and in the process grow and learn from each other. Tom appears to exhibit Aspergers like traits - brilliant, detailed, orderly, and struggling with social skills. Feelings for Tom are to be ignored for they cause confusion and keep him from hurting from his past rejections. It takes Cassandra and Basil (adopted son) to help him a side of himself closed off and buried. It is well worth reading - the historical setting adds clarity to the story line and brings the characters to life.

  • Wonderfully Perfect

    What can I say but I loved this book hard! Tom is one of my top favorite hero’s ever!! He was perfectly imperfect in every way! Cassandra is a twin & wants to marry but is afraid her time has passed. She’s also worried about her weight seeing as she gained some and ladies have noticed. Tom is guarded with is feelings, claims he only has 5 of them, and is a ruthless businessman. When he lays his eyes on Cassandra the first time, he knows he must have her! Tom loves every curve inch that is Cassandra. Watching these two was an absolute honor! They were perfect for each other in every way! Even though Tom tried to fight his feelings almost every step of the way. Cassandra knew Tom was capable of so much more. She also loved that Tom believed she was more than a pretty face! This was a great ending to this series & I already plan to re-read this book! So really just READ this book! No disappoint here, only LOVE!

    Always love Lisa’s stories, and enjoy getting peeks at old characters to find out how their lives have progressed after their own story
  • Lacks the luster of previous books.

    The plot struggled to find traction for the first half of the novel. The stakes were low and there was no chemistry, which mirrors my feelings about West and Phoebe’s story too. Even when a plot becomes clear it lacks any real bite. I feel like the problem with this novel and the previous one is that the characters lose a lot of personality and just became “tortured souls”, which is disappointing because these characters were so beautifully developed in previous books. I would have liked to have seen Cassandra act with more assertiveness and energy. Tom was just a whiny and pretentious douche and became interchangeable with every other brooding male lead in the genre. I think it was formulaic, too. This family can’t stop adopting kids; there could have been other plot devices to explore. This novel still contains the author’s lovely prose and eye for detail, as always.

    Magical. Sweet. Romantic. Just some of the words that describe this Historical Romance. Well I've been processing and just relishing in the aftermath of finishing this wonderful book. I've been wrestling with how I wanted to write my review for this. I'm going change things up as I don't want to give too much away. So this will be a little different from my normal reviews. Characters, both were wonderful!!!!! Tom Severin was complex and evolved into this wonderful character. He's very intelligent, logical and somewhat eccentric. No warm and fuzzies for him. He's very wealthy and creative. People relationships and emotions, foriegn to Tom. Cassandra was sweet, loving and strong. She had a tender heart and just wanted a family of her own to love (I can so relate to that).Quick side note. I loved that LK wrote a heroine that wanted a normal life as a wife and mother. It's a nice and refreshing change. She also wanted love for herself but was finding that no man she had met really attracted or pulled at her emotions. She loved her family!!! She also had a desire to help those in need. The story line is well done. We open with how Severin and Cassandra meet. It was so cute and Severin just melted my heart and also made me smile. We have several "meetings". What I mean is as the story unfolds we have situations were the two are thrown together and what transpires is sweet, heartfelt and romantic. Without giving too much away I want to say that several touched me. Severin working on something that malfunctioned and Cassandra helping him. Tender. The two and their dance can I just say DREAMY and LOVELY and CHEMISTRY!!! And Severin takes a orphan boy under his wings and a scene when the two of them help the little guy is funny and sweet as well. Severin being a night in shining armor for Cassandra when she needed him the most. Beautiful!! Cassandra stands up for Severin against her family. You go girl. And then the "negotiations" and "contract" the two made for their marriage. Loved that, heart warming and funny. Okay maybe it was more than several that I shared. But really I loved the development of their relationship. The multi layers of Severin, his thought process and him getting in touch with his feelings was so well done and beautiful too. And Cassandra and her tender and loving heart. Her determination to not settle for anything but love. And how she dealt with Severin and melted his heart was perfect. I loved the family dynamics and seeing everyone again. Loved the protectiveness of Devin and West. But yet in the end trusted Cassandra as well as seeing the change in Tom. This was a beautiful end to this series. I found it to be the most romantic and second in line was Marrying Winterborne. I hope we see another series. The Marsden brood PLEASE!!!
  • Kind of Disappointed

    By PunyIAm
    Pre-ordered and was excited to finally receive, but, Just as I was beginning to enjoy the book, it ended. I wanted more, wanted to see Cassandra’s benevolent efforts come to fruition: the home for the homeless and less fortunate; wanted to see the Severins come face-to-face with the Ripons at a ball or soirée; and last but not least wanted to enjoy more of their married life. Although, always love the way LK brings back favorite characters into her books-especially adored the interaction between the twins, the Family Wall of Protection, and loved the humor—-LORL!

  • Stellar as Usual

    By baskinsun19
    As usual, Kleypas is lovely and warm and incredible at what she does. Even if they aren’t my favorite of the Ravenels (Cassandra is on her way to becoming exceptional, but isn’t quite there yet like Dr Gibson or Pandora), theyre lovely
