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 have been anxiously waiting for Griffith’s story since this series began. He has been a favorite character in this series from the start, and I thought it was so fitting that his story was last. Its bittersweet to see this series end. The characters in these books really bring these stories to life, and the family dynamic of the Hawthorne’s is so fun and easy to connect with as a reader. Griffith, the leader of the family, finally gets his own story in An Inconvenient Beauty. This story was written with Kristi Ann Hunter’s usual blend of humor and romance. I absolutely loved the flashback at the beginning of the book to a younger Griffith and Ryland during their school days. Getting a glimpse of a younger Griffith and how events from his younger life shaped him as an adult was not only entertaining, it also helped explain some of his reserved nature. There were so many fun and funny scenes in this book, and I love that all the Hawthorne siblings and spouses are prominent during this book giving advice or opinions as Griffith navigates his way to love. I have loved this series from start to finish! Each book and character has been fun, unique and entertaining. With the closing of this series comes a new series from Kristi Ann Hunter and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for future books and characters!
