Considered unmarriageable by many due to her questionable parentage, May has let her hopes for true love fade and devoted herself to a life caring for her ailing aunt. But when May is unable to pay rent on the humble cottage in which she and her aunt reside, she must plead her case to the imposing viscount willing to toss two helpless women in the gutter.

But with his family pressuring him to marry and produce an heir, he has little choice but to begin the search for a bride. To this end, he creates a list detailing the perfect wife.
May meets none of the list's criteria, so why does his heart beat madly at the sight of the elegantly shabby miss? He is sorely tempted to toss his list and all that's right and proper into the fire to marry this most unsuitable lady….

Usually I like a lil sumthin' sumthin' in my romances, and this book had 2 1/2 kisses and NO SEX! But it was a great story that kept me riveted the whole time.
Very enjoyable Regency romance as the storyline immediately sucks you into a dilemma as Viscount Radford is instantly attracted to his tenant May (alas a nobody) but his duty (and Mother) demands he weds. He is forced to court a 'proper' Lady but the sparks just aren't there.
Interesting likeable characters, a well written story that captures the time period, no sex, plenty of romance but a very quick ending and epilogue.
Worth a credit? Definately and I will look out for more of D.M.'s books.
I prefer the audio edition because a story set in historical England should be in the language to get the effect.
None that I can think of.
a good touch
The Narrator. The story. It wasn't bad. Just not the best I've ever
Plot was a tlittle too light. Just nothing there really.
