About the Book:
Griffith, Duke of Riverton, likes order, logic, and control, and he naturally applies this rational approach to his search for a bride. He's certain Miss Frederica St. Claire is the perfect wife for him, but while Frederica is strangely elusive, he can't seem to stop running into her stunningly beautiful cousin, Miss Isabella Breckenridge.
Isabella should be enjoying her society debut, but with her family in difficult circumstances, her uncle will only help them if she'll use her beauty to assist him in his political aims. Already uncomfortable with this agreement, the more she comes to know Griffith, the more she wishes to be free of her unfortunate obligation.
Will Griffith and Isabella be able to set aside their pride and face their fears in time to find their own happily-ever-after?
I hate to see this series end, but this final installment of Hunter's Hawthorne House series was a fitting end with the story centering around elder brother, Griffith, Duke of Riverton. I was so amused with Griffith in this story! In all of the other books, Griffith has been stoic, serious, and calm. In An Inconvenient Beauty he becomes a completely besotted, lovesick fool! His revelations that he is an "idiot" when it comes to love and the subtle humor he displays at times with Isabella presents a completely different side of his character. His complete and utter adoration of Isabella and the emotional turmoil he experiences because of it was touching. And who knew he was such a romantic! I loved how the book ended tying together Griffith's rules for dancing. So loved this last novel and absolutely will miss these characters who break all molds when it comes to English high society!
