In New York City, ambitious career woman Bronte Talbott thought she loved Mr. Texas but that ended badly for her. In Chicago Bronte next meets British doctoral student Max Heyworth in a bookstore. They were supposed to meet in New York when she met Mr. Texas, but Max’s flight arrived late. Now he thinks kismet with plans to make her his duchess and she thinks a quickie tryst as he is a “Transitional Man”.

As they begin a whirlwind courtship since he will soon return home, Bronte, who loves following the royal scandal across the pond, taunts Max about his nation’s aristocracy only to learn he is one of them as the Duke of Northrop. With paparazzi stalking her and his family disdaining the American, even Bronte wonders if love is enough for her to give up Midwest coffee for London tea.

This is an entertaining amusing contemporary romance starring two fascinating protagonists. The third war between the colonies and the mother nation is lighthearted chick lit fun.
