The comrade of the Ackerley sisters' new brother-in-law was anything but unattractive. Lachlan Kimbal, the newest Marquess of Asheburton, loomed tall, dark and rich—and he was looking for a wife. Yet, wasn't right for Charity's sister, whom he seemed intent on courting. Amity was in love with another man. But the Ackerly family stuck together, the twins most of all, so they would perpetrate a deception. Thwarting the infuriating Scotsman would even be a laugh. For one night Charity could act demure and gracious, strong yet obedient—everything that Lachlan sought. In that same night, he would prove himself everything she desired.

Scot Lachlan Kimball is the new Marquess of Asheburton and he’s looking for a wife. Lachlan’s been burned in the past so he’s not eager to jump into the love pond again. The London ton is the perfect place to find a woman that he can marry and produce heir’s with. He never counted on encountering a sparring partner in the process.

Miss Charity Ackerly and her twin sister Amity Ackerly are ready to enjoy this season among the London ton. Charity has always been known as the twin with attitude while Amity is the sweet and docile twin. Charity simply can’t help herself when it comes to Lachlan. He provokes her like no other ever has. 

Charity and Lachlan share a connection but he has eyes for Amity. Amity would make the perfect wife but there is something about Charity that draws Lachlan in. Mistaken identities, cowards bent on revenge and wayward mamas make Charity an absolutely fun adventurous romance. 

I love Charity! Charity is a riot! Charity is a strong, stubborn woman looking for love and Lachlan is perfect for her. These two really complete each other. I found Charity to be hilarious, exciting and full of passion! Lachlan makes me melt! His character is so perfect! The way he handles things with Charity is so beautiful and swoon worthy. Deneane Clark has mesmerized me with the Ackerly women and the romantic men they wed. I am in love with this series and cannot wait for the next one. Charity is a spirited, delightful, memorable romance that should not be missed!

It was divinely providential, acknowledged most mamas of the ton, how time could change a man. A mere younger son the year before, a notorious prankster and womanizer, Gareth Lloyd was now the dignified Marquess of Roth. And the sudden possession of such a large fortune made him the catch of the Season. He was also everything Miss Faith Ackerly despised. To her, a rake and a libertine could no more become a pillar of society than a leopard could change its spots. For a maid as prim as she was pretty, Gareth's wealth was no more an inducement to wed than his title. Yet those warm brown eyes did not show the soul of a scoundrel. They promised to protect and cherish, to fend off any foe…though they indeed tempted her with the pleasures of the bedroom. No, no act of God could make her desire Gareth. But a leap of faith could lead to true love.

Miss Faith Ackerly is ready to find her Mr. Right among this season’s ton. After watching her sister find love and happily-ever-after Faith is looking for her own. Most marriage matches found among the ton are more business than pleasure but that simply will not do for Miss Faith Ackerly. 

For most of his life Gareth Lloyd has been known as the second son, a prankster and a stud. Now that Gareth has become the Marquess of Roth he is the most eligible man in the ton. The women are fawning all over him but the one that sparks his interest doesn’t fall at his feet as he would like. 

Gareth is the opposite of what Faith wants in a husband. How can she find love with a known womanizer? Even as his touch sets her on fire Faith is content to deny her feelings until Gareth and Faith are caught in a compromising position. What is the proper thing to do? Gareth and Faith must marry or her reputation will be in tatters. Can this couple find love together or will there be too many obstacles in their way?

Faith is a lovely romance filled with wonderful characters. I really enjoyed Faith. Faith and Gareth share a burning chemistry that lights up the pages. I am growing to adore the Ackerly women and the men they attract. This is my first Virtue novel. You don’t have to read the series in order to follow along, but after reading one book it’s impossible not to want to read the others. Deneane Clark has written a family full of bold, brazen, beautiful, strong and sexy women. I fell in love with these sisters! They are inspiring from their relationships with each other to the relationships they find with their husbands. Gareth is an ex-womanizer with a big heart but boy did he make me angry at times. These two did their best to infuriate me at times but I thoroughly enjoyed their journey. Faith is a sweet and satisfying read!
