Years ago, the Holwells brought ruin onto the Yorks, and the families are still feuding. Now Soren York, Earl of Dewsberry, is determined to restore his family's fortunes, but for that he needs money. Wealthy Cassandra Holwell, a woman he'd known as a young girl and whose land marches with his, is the ideal choice, but Cass resists him at every turn. Then fate takes a hand, and they are caught in an innocent but totally compromising situation. Soren nobly proposes. Cass's options are ruin or her father's fury. An independent bluestocking and an honorable peer find that marriage is more challenging—and ultimately rewarding—than either had imagined.
VERDICT Sparkling badinage, unforeseen plot twists, and tender passion make this engaging romance one to savor. Maxwell (If Ever I Should Love You) lives in Virginia.
