Date Read: October 30, 2018


An heiress with a daring proposal. An earl who’s determined to resist her. And a love that just might be written in the stars…

Recently jilted by his fiancée, David Gray, Earl of Ravenport is not in the market for a wife. Even if Gray didn’t have his hands full renovating his crumbling country house, it would take more than a bold marriage proposal from a headstrong young beauty to thaw his frozen heart. Gray is confident that spending a week at his ramshackle estate will change her mind about marriage, but every passionate moment he spends with her tempts him to change his…

A talented artist, Miss Fiona Hartley desperately needs her dowry money to pay off a blackmailer set on ruining her sister. The handsome earl seems a sensible choice for a husband…if only she can convince him that romance will play no part. But marrying in name only may prove difficult for Fiona. Gray can’t help but be dazzled by her genuine warmth. Yet as their feelings deepen, Fiona’s deadline looms. Will her secrets destroy them, or is true love their final destiny?

Wealthy Fiona Hartley and her sister Lily are going to have their first London season. Lily was adopted as a babe and someone is threatening to tell the truth about Lily’s birth mother. Fiona has decided to pay the man but needs to get her dowry to do so. She has decided to send a letter to Gray, Earl of Ravenport, asking him to marry her asap. She knows the Earl needs money and he was once nice to her at a ball. He’s not quite sure about her and decides to have a house party at his crumbling estate, assuming one look will drive her away.
Fiona is an artist and sees what the estate could be when restored. His Grandmother thinks they will be perfect for each other. After spending time with her, he agrees to the marriage but informs her he’s incapable of loving her. During the house party, she becomes acquainted with his friends. One of them, Kirby, doesn’t seem quite right to her. Gray does fall in love with her, but no spoilers from me because this story gets complicated and hard to put down. I really enjoyed it and hope you will read it.
