Summary

Like all the Bedwyn men, Aidan has a reputation for cool arrogance. But this proud nobleman also possesses a loyal, passionate heart - and it is this fierce loyalty that has brought Colonel Lord Aidan to Ringwood Manor to honor a dying soldier's request. Having promised to comfort and protect the man's sister, Aidan never expected to find a headstrong, fiercely independent woman who wants no part of his protection, nor did he expect the feelings this beguiling creature would ignite in his guarded heart. And when a relative threatens to turn Eve out of her home, Aidan gallantly makes her an offer she can't refuse: marry him, if only to save her home. And now, as all of London breathlessly awaits the transformation of the new Lady Aidan Bedwyn, the strangest thing happens: With one touch, one searing embrace, Aidan and Eve's "business arrangement" is about to be transformed into something slightly surprising.

Critic reviews

"Believable complications and an intriguing clash of personalities ensure the story never grows stale, and Balogh's quirky supporting characters - including Eve's gutsy housekeeper and Aidan's formidable aunt - sprinkle the tale with homespun humor." ( Publishers Weekly)

A Solid Story

This isn't my favourite Mary Balogh book. I want terribly taken by either Eve or Aiden. I really wanted to bang their heads together. I also didn't really feel their connection which I usually do with Mary's books. But I loved the premise of the book and the side characters did help to save the book, especially the old Welsh aunt and the somewhat aggressive housekeeper. I wouldn't read this as my first May Balogh book. If go for the Mistress Trilogy or the Survivors Club. But it's still a solid book. I hope to fall a bit harder for the rest of the Bedwyn siblings.

Rosalyn Landor's narration is, of course, top notch. I can't fault it. She really is the best narrator of regency books around.
