Until Joseph, Marquess of Attingsborough, arrives unannounced and tempts her to toss away a lifetime of propriety for an affair that can only lead to ruin, embarking on a plan of seduction that leaves them both yearning for more.

And now that world is about to be rocked by scanda.…An arranged marriage, a secret that will shock the ton, and a man from Claudias past conspire to drive the lovers apart. But Joseph is determined to make Claudia his at any costeven if that means breaking every rule for a love that is everything he has ever wanted.…

MarcusHorne, September 29, 2009 (view all comments by MarcusHorne)
Balogh has written a winner! This final book in the "Simply" series is marvelous...almost a feminine version of the final "Bedwyn" book, 'Slightly Dangerous.' Claudia is similar to Wulfric Bedwyn in that she is prim, rigid, and utterly correct in her manner and behavior just as Wulfric was. His story is one of my favorite Balogh books, but 'Simply Perfect' rivals it as one of my new favorites. Balogh writes a touching tale of an independent woman who makes a successful life for herself after experiencing heartache at a young age. Her journey toward opening herself up to love in this book is well-told, believeable, and tremendously moving. Balogh knows human nature well. She always does such a good job of portraying all the psychological and emotional roadblocks we put in our way as we travel toward love. She is a master storyteller. Joseph is the perfect hero to Claudia's stern heroine. Their tale has it's share of twists and turns, but is ultimately completely satisfying. As always, I hate to reach the end of a Balogh book. If only she could write faster. How will I make it for another year?! She is truly unequalled as the best historical romance writer today.
