...it's always the sensible ones!

The Scoundrel and the Debutante (The Cabot Sisters #3) by Julia London 

Who would have thought it. Prudence was the sensible one! But oh, she so wanted one little adventure before she went off to a life doomed to spinsterhood--all because of the scandal of her sisters.   
An innocent decision to visit her best friend in the country turns to something else when Pru encounters the fascinating American, Roan Matheson. The lure of a life with adventure certainly appeals!
Roan is chasing his madcap sister who is following her own adventures.
Together Pru and Roan's antics and passion cut a sizzling and often hilarious swathe through the English countryside. Roan trying so hard to be the gentleman and Pru determining to go into spinsterhood having loved well and lost. 
I must admit that I was quite annoyed with Grace and Honor, her two elder sisters and their lack of understanding about where their actions had placed Pru.
I was also all out of charity with Roan's sister Aurora who really had no for thought but for herself in dealing with Pru.
I quite enjoyed this Cabot sisters' story although the final stages with Aurora really annoyed me.
