Sycamore Dorning has watched one sibling after another succumb to the blandishments of wedded bliss, while he has grown wealthy and--deuce take it--lonely. He loves the ladies generally, though he waits in vain for the woman who can love him back in all his contrary, stubborn, outspoken glory.
Jeanette, Marchioness of Tavistock, endured six years of wedded purgatory before earning the independence of widowhood. She's admittedly attracted to Sycamore. He's refreshingly blunt, unconventional, and loyal to those he cares about. When trouble stalks her, she turns to Sycamore for help, because she would trust him with her life. But will she trust him with her heart?

This is a character study of individuals who project having it all together but in reality and within themselves are a mass of insecurity and self-doubts. I loved it, in fact have read it through twice!
Not that great
This book was ok. Nothing much to get you excited or much of a page turner. Just a steady, slow and boring book. Meh.
