Book Summary

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 couldn’t be more mistaken–the maid is not only a lady of birth, she’s the niece of a very large, exceptionally angry gentlemen, 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 was in the mood for a treat, so I decided to splurge and buy this book. I loved it. The characters drew me in as did the story. I even stayed up late to finish it (which I really shouldn’t have done). I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading more books by Sarah M. Eden.

  1. I love Sarah’s books! This is one of my favorites of hers just because of that first meeting between the two MC’s. I’m glad you liked it!

  2. I haven’t read any of her books yet, but I want to! This sounds like something I would really love to curl up and read late into the night. It’s so fun to forget reality for awhile!
