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.

*Book I purchased myself*

When I first heard of Chasing Cassandra I was unsure how I would like it, Devils Daughter was not my favorite book in the series, so I was a little nervous about starting this book that could ruin the last of the series for me (first world problems I know), on top of that I was never really bothered by Cassandra or Tom, as their characters had seemed secondary to me. But all of that was foolishness on my part because as we all know, Lisa Kleypas is very good at the unexpected. 

From the first part of this book, I loved Tom Severin, from his remarkable offer of marriage to Lady Cassandra to the honesty of his thoughts and “feelings” that he claims he only has 8 of, to later in the book, where he doesn’t care about the impropriety of protecting Cassandra and moving heaven and earth to do it. And then there is Cassandra, whom in previous books I had dismissed as a flighty girl, turned into someone with depth, fears, and a love for books that immediately I loved. 

The story of Chasing Cassandra is not a smooth or even sweet on, but it’s a magical story of two imperfect souls finding love with each other when forces are against them, which honestly just made me fall in love with them all the more. 

I give Chasing Cassandra 5 stars
