In this irresistible Regency romance by award-winning author Elizabeth Mansfield, a stubbornly single noblewoman has five months to find a husband—or become instantly penniless
Time is running out for twenty-five-year-old Lady Margaret Underwood. Desperate to retain the independence that her considerable fortune affords her, she accepts the proposal of Viscount Charles Isham. But after a few hours in his stultifying company, she does what any woman would do: She flees.
A snowstorm and a carriage mishap lead to rescue by a seductive stranger. Soon Meg is ensconced in the Yorkshire estate of Sir Geoffrey Carrier, a soldier harboring a painful secret. And there’s more stormy weather ahead for a man sworn to remain single and a woman who refuses to be married off as they discover the perils and pleasures of falling in love.

Glad her novels are ebooks now
Elizabeth Mansfield was an auto-buy for me before ebooks.
It was fun to read this again: I intend to read through all of her books in the coming months. No author bingeing for me.
ALL my books are packed away (I miss them all terribly), including hers, which I purchased as published, and enjoyed them immensely. At least now I can read them again!
