"Amelia Grey lights up the pages with humor and passion."-RT Book Reviews
An unexpected alliance changes lives in this original and enjoyable Regency, first in the Heirs' Club series. When Bray, Duke of Drakestone, reluctantly agrees to marry his dying friend's sister, Louisa, he envisions a life of misery with a homely, timid woman, and stays away for two years. At their first encounter, the duke is happily surprised by Louisa's beauty and fiery spirit, but is put off by her four boisterous sisters. Louisa is likewise drawn to Bray but incensed by his lollygagging, and she lets him know her feelings when he finally arrives. Bray decides it's time to take his vow and responsibilities to heart. As the gossips bet on whether Bray will indeed marry Louisa, powerful outsiders attempt to intervene and force their hand. And when their passionate interludes lead to unanticipated emotions, the two must reevaluate their plans for a marriage of convenience. Slightly heavy-handed language doesn't diminish a strong plot with enough twists to satisfy.
