She wants to marry a Lord, as Lordly and titled as possible. He wants nothing more to do with her than saddle her horses.
Miss Lucy Standish has wanted to marry a future duke for as long as she could remember. Days in the cold, with little coal for their small cottage and little to eat, she would dream of the days she saved all her sisters with a marriage to a man of such elevated title that they would never be poor again, that her children and their children forever would be cared for.
Mr. Conor Sullivan has never overstepped the lines of propriety. He does everything he can to treat Miss Lucy with respect. But his heart is overcome with love for the middle Standish sister, and he assumes he will spend his dying breath still wishing she were his.
But fortune changes for the Sullivan family. With new attention from the crown and past family secrets revealed, a path opens that just might mean happiness for Lucy and Conor. But will they be bold enough to seize the opportunity when it comes?
Rating: Mild. Mild kissing.
Forbidden love that involves different classes can be a tricky trope to write about but it totally worked in this book and I was happy with the ending. The romance was very sweet and I loved the carriage scene!
