The Taming of Ryder Cavanaugh by Stephanie Laurens

Historical Romance
From Goodreads:

The Taming of Ryder Cavanaugh (The Cynster Sisters Duo #2)"The 2nd in the Cynster Sisters duo, #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens thrills with this fantastic tale of a Cynster who'll stop at nothing for love.

Lady Mary has been waiting years for this opportunity. Now that her sister has thrown off her spinster ways and become betrothed, it's finally Mary's chance for true love. She knows exactly who she wants --and it's not someone as wild, unmanageable, and sinfully seductive as Ryder Cavanaugh.

Ryder Cavanaugh, Marquess of Raventhorne, had never met a woman who wouldn't happily fall at his feet--or into his bed...until Lady Mary Cynster. But Ryder has made some decisions about his life and he'll only succeed at being the man he wants to be with Mary by his side. And convincing her of that fact is just the kind of challenge he thrills at."

While it is not a requirement that you follow the Cynster books I do think The Taming of Ryder Cavanaugh would be more enjoyable if you were a fan of the series.  Many of the characters from previous books are scattered through out the story.  In some ways they are a distraction if you do not know their history.  It makes it difficult to recommend this as a stand-alone although it can be read as one.

Both of the main characters are well written.  Lady Mary always knows what she wants and does not hesitate to go after it.  .  Ryder Cavanaugh is the same.  At the first of the story they are at cross-purposes but that changes.  Once they come together the story changes.  Now there is danger thrown into the story.  All of the elements add up to a easy enjoyable light read.

Avon published The Taming of Ryder Cavanaugh by Stephanie Laurens in 2013.
