Loving Lady Marcia

In the House of Brady, three very lovely girls have hair of gold—and hearts to match—but finding a match among the gentlemen of London is one comedy of errors that could bring down the house… 
Marcia Gets Schooled… 
Of the three Brady sisters, Lady Marcia has always seemed the girl most likely to lead a perfectly charmed life. But after a handsome cad breaks her heart, she swears off love and devotes her life to teaching girls at a private school. In spite of her family’s wish for a London debut, Marcia is happy where she is—until terrible news sends her back to the Brady clan…and into the arms of an unexpected suitor. 
On The Subject Of Love 
A dark and dashing earl who knows Marcia’s past, Duncan Lattimore is surprised by what a fascinating and independent woman she’s become. Marcia, too, is surprised—by the fiery attraction she feels for Duncan. But why—why—must he be the brother of the scoundrel who broke her heart? Why must Marcia’s rival at school forbid her from seeing him? How can this lady possibly resist this fellow—when they know that it’s much more than a hunch…

Oh my goodness! I struggled with this book.  I have read previous books written by the author, which I've enjoyed, but for some reason I couldn't get into this story.  I love independent heroines, but Marcia was way too extreme, which made me utter a few choice words every now and again.  I enjoyed Duncan, he was caring and supportive and he adored Marcia and she was not very nice to him at times.  I couldn't see them together.  

I'm not sure if I will even bother reading the rest of the series.
