New York Times best-selling author Shirlee Busbee weaves the intricate, unforgettable story of a chance meeting, a forced marriage - and the surprise of a love so passionate it cannot be denied...
Love Is Sweetest When It's Unexpected...
Nell Anslowe and Julian, Earl of Wyndham, are an unlikely couple in every respect. Injured in a riding accident ten years ago, Nell was left with a fiance who abandoned their engagement and the firm belief that she will never marry. The abrupt end of Julian's unhappy marriage formed his resolve to remain a bachelor until the end of his days.
But as Julian chases down his reckless stepsister, he seeks shelter from a summer storm in a cottage - and finds it occupied by Nell, who has escaped from a fortune - seeking libertine bent on carrying her off to Gretna Green. Discovered together by Nell's family, the couple's hasty wedding is the only way to save Nell from scandal. But the polite union each of them expects soon ignites into something much more powerful.

I found it very difficult to like the heroin. She seemed like a spoiled “ninny”. She is so wrapped up in what she feels her husband had to do to please and make her happy that I wondered why a guy would even like a self serving person like her. Not only does she not show the slightest passion or love for him, but also gets upset, even half way into the book (yes that far into it) because she thought he feels love for his ex wife who died while pregnant with their child. The story finally got more exciting in the second half as I was contemplating reading another book. So for those of you wanting to read this book, don’t give up. The second half is much better though a bit predictable.
