When Crispin, Lord Cavratt, thoroughly and scandalously kisses a serving woman in the garden of a country inn, he assumes the encounter will be of no consequence. But he could be more mistaken–the maid is not only a lady of birth, she’s the niece of a very large, exceptionally angry gentleman, who claims Crispin has compromised his niece beyond redemption. The dismayed young lord has no choice but to marry Miss Catherine Thorndale, who lacks both money and refinement and assumes all men are as vicious as her guardian uncle.

Trapped between an unwanted marriage and a hasty annulment, which would leave his reputation tainted and Catherine’s utterly ruined, Crispin begins guiding his wife’s transformation from a socially petrified country girl to a lady of society. Their unfolding relationship reveals encouraging surprises for both of them, and privately each of them wonders if theirs may become a true marriage of the heart. But their hopes are dashed when forces conspire to split asunder what fate has granted. As a battle of wits escalates into a life-threatening confrontation, will it be possible for Crispin and Catherine to live happily ever after?

    I loved and hated this book! I loved the beginning and the end, but I wanted to scream in frustration in the middle when they wouldn’t just TALK TO EACH OTHER! Whenever I felt like throwing the book across the room I would just keep reading knowing it would redeem itself in the end. Luckily, it’s not a terribly long book, and it did do so.

    Gosh! I love this book so much! I think I’ve reread it more than I can count! It is so good! It holds you from the first line all the way to the end. I never drifted. It was so cool to see Catherine and Crispin’s relationship blossom!
