Publisher Description

As long as a lady has hope in her heart, it doesn't matter the obstacles she faces on the path to love.
 

Through no fault of her own, the Honorable Evelina Aston has fallen headfirst into the scandal of the Season. With her father on the brink of bankruptcy, when she's caught alone and in a compromising position with an earl, he calls for an immediate proposal. It doesn't matter that the man she's being forced to wed is a rake high on the instep, she has no say in the proceedings.
 

Charles Bowling, Earl of Ethersham—and heir to the Duke of Tarkington—is in a spot of bother. Caught literally with his pants down in a lady's retiring room, he's mired in further disgrace when a woman—not the one he was waiting for—comes flying into the room, trips, and lands at his feet. Parental outrage ensues. Before he can protest, he's wedded to the shy lady, and they're bound for his father's country estate in the Lake District to begin their life of married inconvenience.
 

With tarnished reputations and gossip trailing in their wake, both Evelina and Charles are forced into close proximity. As the July days go by, desire flares as hot as the summer sun while they explore the woodlands and fells, but differences and misunderstandings keep widening the gulf in their tempestuous relationship. To say nothing of the unexpected peril that dogs their steps and puts what they truly want into sharp perspective.

Hopeful in Yellow

What a scrumptious read!!! I adored the characters. A man so broken by the war and his memories. A woman being forced to wed to save her parents from bankruptcy. The two are forced to marry when they are caught in a compromising situation that really was totally innocent!

The dialogue was witty. The plot smooth and very enjoyable. I really needed more to this story as I fell in love with the characters!

This is written in a dual POV format. That was especially helpful in Charles' side. Getting into his tortured soul really made him oh so human.

While this is a part of a series, you don't have to read the prior ones to fully understand and enjoy this book. I am going to go back and read Charles' sister and his BFF's story though!

This is on the sexy side of things as a word of warning. I would highly recommend this to adult.

Charles and Evie

Evelina just wanted to get away, from the ball, from her would-be suitors, her parents. She hoped the retiring room would provide solace, however, upon entering she encounters Charles, Earl of Ethersham with his pants down. The next thing they know, they are caught in an undeniably compromising display by her parents and his, engaged, married, and off to live at the estate in the Lake District. Is it possible that an earl whose guilt from the war causes him nightmares and a wallflower who is a good listener and is able to calm his mind can make this marriage work? Things get dicey when Charles’s past comes to call putting them both in danger. This is a wonderful story with a slow-burn romance, lots of humor, and a dangerous twist. The story is entertaining and the characters interesting. Charles and Evie start out as opposites, but end up as complements, each being exactly what the other needs. Good read!
