Lady Kate Cole was a young woman of exceptional beauty, extraordinary talent, and notable charm. She was also a woman so remarkably prone to accidents that it was generally considered wise to keep as much distance from her as possible.
Yet Andrew Hunter simply couldn't stay away. No other woman would do for his wife. He would give her adventure, fidelity, and a fortune so vast she'd need several lifetimes to go through half of it. What woman could ask for more?
All Kate asked for was a true love match. And Mr. Hunter clearly had no room in his heart for such a silly emotion. But then how was it that no matter what adventure he dragged her on, no matter what mishap befell her, the look in his eyes told her they were DESTINED TO LAST
Sad to see this series end.
Thoughts on Destined to Last
I liked this. I’ve been curious about Kate and Hunter since I read book 3 (which is also the first book in the series I read). I’m happy to say that I wasn’t disappointed. Though I am disappointed Lizzy won’t get her own story.
Kate’s always been clumsy, so I was worried that Hunter would want to curb it by constantly looking after her (which would have annoyed me so), but he was charmed by it, and that made me like him… even if he was—obviously—going after Kate in the wrong way.
Destined to Last was very much like its predecessors in the silliness of matchmaking. I like that William Fletcher, man of the War Department was so skilled at matching people. (But you’d think, being in charge of agents, one would acquire an ability to read and sum up people quite adeptly.) It was fun.
All in all, a good solid historomance, and I’m sad to see this series end. I almost wish there were more children to be matched.
