Lady Prudence Sterling is finished with Society. After eight years of balls, routs, garden parties and carriage rides, she has determined there is no man for her and she will spend the rest of her life as a doting aunt to her many nieces and nephews. She will also pursue her art, a passion that has consumed her since girlhood.
A visit to the renowned Reeves and Goddard Art Gallery secures her an art show when Mr. Goddard praised her work. Thrilled to finally see her dream come true, the one thing keeping her from total happiness is the sharp-tongued Mr. Ashton Reeves who views her with contempt, and overly-polite formality.
Ashton Reeves, the unacknowledged bastard son of the Earl of Stanhope holds nothing but disdain for the haut ton after the way his mother had been treated by Stanhope.

For the Love of the Gentleman by Callie Hutton
I absolutely loved the historical romance of Lady Prudence & Aston Reeves! Pru is an artist who is tired of the Marriage Mart in London & brings her paintings to one of the tons most renowned & successful art galleries to see if her artwork is good enough for them to give her a show! Ash is one of the partners in Reeves & Goddard & Mr. Goddard offers her the chance she was hoping for. She & Reeves meet when she returns with more of her work. Ash is rather rude since he has no use for aristocrats claiming to be artists! He is, however, most impressed with her beautiful landscapes! You really must read this book to learn just when the sparks begin to sizzle & how he, an only child, comes to admire her large loving family! Of course, there are many surprises along the way in this story of a reclusive man & a lady who believes she is a spinster at 26❣️👏👏. You will love it‼️
