Linley Talbot-Martin is a girl who likes to get her hands dirty. As the daughter of a famous archaeologist, she's been everywhere and seen everything—except London. But when the time comes to trade her jodhpurs and work boots for silk gowns and kid gloves, she may be in over her head.
Even though she can out-ride, out-shoot, and outsmart any girl in London society, Linley is destined to be the failure of the season. No one she meets cares about ancient pottery or lost Buddhist texts, and fundraising efforts for future expeditions keep coming up short. If the Talbot-Martin team doesn't find money soon, they will be out of a job, and Linley will lose everything she holds dear.
Patrick Wolford, Marquess of Kyre (pronounced 'Keer'), is a man who knows his place. Well-connected and respected, he is everything everyone expects him to be, but beneath his façade, he is as neglected and crumbling as the family estate. Now the strain of keeping up appearances is taking its toll. The smart thing would be to marry the heiress nipping at his heels and be done with it, but when he meets Linley Talbot-Martin, who dares to shake up his seemingly proper world, he must choose between the life he's always known and one he never dared to dream of.

Free iBook. Linley is the daughter of a prominent archeologist, who has grown up on the digs with her father's team. Patrick is a peer, with large tracts of entailed land and very little cash. It looks like he needs to marry an heiress, but comes across Linley, and thinks she is a free spirit -just the opposite of himself. She is attracted to his stability, since she has never had any. When her father is given an award, she meets Patrick again in London, then he flies her to India, where he saves her from dying in a himilayan monastery and nearly dies himself, carrying her out.
I enjoyed the book thoroughly! Thank you for such a great read.
