"Everything has a price...Railway magnate Tom Severin is wealthy and powerful enough to satisfy any desire as soon as it arises. Anything--or anyone--is his for the asking. It should be simple to find the perfect wife--and from his first glimpse of Lady Cassandra Ravenel, he's determined to have her. But the beautiful and quick-witted Cassandra is equally determined to marry for love--the one thing he can't give. Everything except her... Severin is the most compelling and attractive man Cassandra has ever met, even if his heart is frozen. But she has no interest in living in the fast-paced world of a ruthless man who always plays to win. When a newfound enemy nearly destroys Cassandra's reputation, Severin seizes the opportunity he's been waiting for. As always, he gets what he wants--or does he? There's one lesson Tom Severin has yet to learn from his new bride: Never underestimate a Ravenel. The chase for Cassandra's hand may be over. But the chase for her heart has only just begun..."--Publisher.… (mais)

Good story.
Possible trigger is the heroine is assaulted, not by the Hero but by another possible suitor at around 50% of the book.
Quite funny in parts with the banter between the Hero and heroine.

Chasing Cassandra - Kleypas
Audio performance by M.J.Wells
4 stars

The final Ravenel romance definitely has its moments. Cassandra is more than a little desperate to be the only unmarried Ravenel. She turned down five proposals in her first season, and despite an intense attraction, has also rejected the wealthy, handsome and somewhat strange Tom Severin. There are no surprises as to how this will end, but there are a few detours. Cassandra must cope with a bit of fat shaming, and even more disturbing, a near sexual assault. ” ‘Make no mistake, Kathleen continued heatedly, ….Men like that never take responsibility—they lash out, and then say someone else provoked them into doing it. ‘See what you made me do.’ But the choice is always theirs. They hurt and frighten others to make themselves feel powerful.”

Tom Severin spends most of the book struggling with his feelings. He doesn’t at all know what to do with them. At first, I thought this might be a 19th century look at a person on the Asperger Spectrum. Not exactly, but close enough. “ My goodness, do you take everything so literally?” “I’m an engineer.”

Desperation has him actually reading novels in an attempt to understand his own feelings. I laughed out loud at his analysis of 19th century literature. “Love is the worst thing that can happen to people in novels,” Tom protested. “What good did Heathcliff and all his passionate foaming at the mouth do for Cathy? …. And then there’s Jane Eyre, an otherwise sensible woman so dazzled by lovemaking, she didn’t happen to notice the scurrying of an arsonous madwoman overhead.

The entertainment value of this character moved this predictable book up a star just for the fun of it. ( )

Cassandra Ravenel is determined to marry for love, Tim Severin has determined that the next thing he needs to do in his life is marry. The two of them are slowly orbiting each other and starting to realise that there is potential in a relationship, but can it work for both of them?

He's so closed off, but he cares so much about her and about her happiness. He values logic above all but sometimes he does slightly crazy things to keep her happy. She just wants an interesting life and love. The two of them together are fun and I really enjoyed the read. ( )

This entry into the Ravenel series is the story of Cassandra and Thomas Severin, both of whom we've met in preceding books. Overall I liked the story although there is a bit of sameness to other books, her tales are always interesting. Rather a variation on a familiar theme than a completely unique story. Tom is a stoic businessman always about the next move forward with his empire, Cassandra is a compassionate young lady who really doesn't have much in the way of skills, other than being happy and being her much more ambitious/rebellious/exciting twin's twin. However, it was a good story. I rather liked all the characters (even the young boy whose name escapes me at the moment) and the fact that the romance was an extended story rather than a whirlwind. I have to say I skipped most of the steamy sex scenes and primarily stuck with the story.

Overall a good entry into the series by a very good writer. ( )

With the last of the Ravenels married off I expect this is the end of this series, which makes me a bit sad. It was delightful mostly, and this might be the best of the lot. Cassandra and Tom are lovely and their banter, especially about novels, is a delight. Pure dreamy fun. ( )
