Emily Frasier has lived as the ward of Duke Ellings since her father died when she was fifteen. She also knows that soon it will be time to leave his household and make her way on her own. When she discovers a cottage while visiting her aunt and uncle she knows this is where she wants to live and become a teacher, as her father once was.
Dillon Chambers must find a wife this season in order to please his mother. If she didn’t have control over something more precious than his freedom and life, he would not have made the promise to marry a lady with high connections at the end of the season. When he comes across Emily at his cottage and learns she is the ward of a duke, he feels his luck has finally changed. He could please his mother and settle with a lady he would actually want to have as his wife.
When the truth becomes known in London that Emily is only a professor’s daughter, Dillon knows his parents will never approve. Will he risk everything to have her? Will Emily do the sensible thing or risk her reputation and heart so that Dillon doesn’t destroy all he holds dear?
Good and quite enjoyable ...but very slow paced ... wish it was packed with more action esp. In the initial chapters..
Needs AHuman Editor!
‘’Resuscitating in the country’’ was my favorite, but there were many more errors like it. I have seen more and more books like this lately. Is there no such thing as an editor anymore? The story was fine, and the grammatical errors can be quite amusing, but I would be really embarassed if this had been a book I had written.
His Not So Sensible Miss
The storyline and the story itself were both wonderful. That being said, there was a tremendous amount of misspellings, such as "heal" for "heel" and vice-versa. But, as I've said in the past, a free book is a free book, and we all love a free book!
