Miss Chloe Fong has plans for her life, lists for her days, and absolutely no time for nonsense. Three years ago, she told her childhood sweetheart that he could talk to her once he planned to be serious. He disappeared that very night.
Except now he’s back. Jeremy Wentworth, the Duke of Lansing, has returned to the tiny village he once visited with the hope of wooing Chloe. In his defense, it took him years of attempting to be serious to realize that the endeavor was incompatible with his personality.
All he has to do is convince Chloe to make room for a mischievous trickster in her life, then disclose that in all the years they’ve known each other, he’s failed to mention his real name, his title… and the minor fact that he owns her entire village.
Only one thing can go wrong: Everything.

An easy and light read
A fun, easy and light read. Tackles issues on cultural identity, immigration and of course, class but it never feels too heavy handed.
It does not feel like a period piece, however. Both the dialogue and the events which occur feel very modern and aside from the duke story line and some events regarding transport, it really feels and read more like a story set in modern time. The characters are endearing and the plot simple but an enjoyable read nonetheless. I recommend this for someone who just needs something light and quick but charming.
The two epilogues and the sample of Milan’s next book surprised me because I thought there was more to it but alas, no.
Note: This is the first book by this author I have ever read and in general I don’t read much romance. I was brought here by Lindsay Ellis and her coverage of... certain events. Glad I did drop by though! It’s nice to experience something outside of your usual tastes!
