Publisher's Summary

The mysterious Alex Archer returns to England in Book 3 of Mimi Matthews' USA Today best-selling Parish Orphans of Devon series.  

She Needed a Husband....

It's been three years since Laura Hayes' father died, leaving her and her invalid brother to subsist on the income from the family's failing perfume business. But time is swiftly running out. What she needs is a husband, and fast. A noble gentleman who can rescue them all from penury. When a mysterious stranger arrives in the village, he seems a perfect candidate. But Alex Archer is no hero. In fact, he just might be the opposite.  

He Wanted a Fortune....

Alex has no tolerance for sentiment. He's returned to England for one reason only: to find a wealthy wife. A country-bred heiress in Surrey seems the perfect target. But somewhere between the village railway station and the manor house his mercenary plan begins to unravel. And it's all the fault of Laura Hayes - a lady as unsuitable as she is enchanting.  

From the beaches of Margate to the lavender fields of Provence, a grudging friendship slowly blossoms into something more. But when scandal threatens, can a man who has spent his entire life playing the villain finally become a hero? Or will the lure of easy riches once again outweigh the demands of his heart?

Mimi Matthews plus Alex Wyndham!!!

Pairing Mimi's extraordinary storytelling with Alex's stellar performance - it doesn't get much better than this! The third book in the Parish Orphans of Devon is a classic! All the "brothers" together again. Highly, highly recommended.

Mimi and Alex - what's not to love?

Alex/s story....and just as good as the previous orphan's stories. Great story line, interesting and exciting characters. Alex Wyndham is the best of the best narrators. He brings the characters to life.

Loved! (Spoilers below)

I fell for parish orphan #3 Alex Archer more than I expected! Being invested in this series I thought he wouldn’t be as sympathetic of a character for me, but I was wrong! Well done again Mimi Matthews, book 3 didn’t disappoint and I was inordinately excited to see the men and their lady loves all meeting and reunited at the end, the set up for our last parish orphan Neville to find his own HEA! Can’t wait for book #4
Side note: there is a little steam to this romance BUT Mimi Matthews always keeps it classy :-) perfect
