Georgia Holton, wellborn but nearly penniless, is best friends with one of the Earl of Sherton’s five daughters. When she is invited to accompany her friend for two weeks of the Season, Georgia jumps at the opportunity to have a little adventure away from her small village.
The Earl of Crossley is handsome, wealthy, widowed, and jaded. He has no intention of courting any of this Season’s debutantes. After all, every woman he’s ever known has been dishonest, including his late wife. But when a chance encounter throws him into contact with the Sherton ladies and their lovely friend, he can’t help being drawn to Georgia’s beauty and endearing personality.
When confusion about Georgia’s small inheritance becomes known, a sense of obligation to right a wrong forces the earl and Georgia into close association.
But is she really different from any of the other women, or does she have an ulterior motive?
And can Georgia even consider getting close to a man from High Society, when all she wants is to return to her simple village life?
Sparks fly between these two, but it will take forgiveness and understanding on both their parts to reach a happily ever after.
A sweet little story but lacking in the romance department for me. Andrews created some well rounded characters, I did find it a little modern at times when it came to how a lady would conduct herself.
I did like the slow build of the relationship between the two main characters. The storyline had good pace and some witty supporting characters. My only issues is that it lack a epilouge, I always enjoy seeing what happends after the scenario concludes.
Overall a get little read.
