Hadrian Ames, Duke of Clayton, believes he’s found the ideal wife—she’s kind and beautiful and the marriage would fulfill an agreement made between their fathers years ago. But he begins to doubt his plan when he meets Natalie Fanshawe. A proud American, Natalie is visiting England only as long as it takes to return six-year-old orphan Leo to his relatives. When their paths collide at an inn on the road, Hadrian is bewitched by Natalie’s bold opinions but wonders if a loveless marriage is indeed the answer, while Natalie questions if she can put her principles aside for a man who treats her and Leo with compassion.
VERDICT American and English cultures clash in the parlor and the bedroom in Drake’s latest outing (after The Duke I Once Knew). Readers looking to cheer on two unlikely lovers will gravitate to this title.
