It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of...anything but a wife?
The third audiobook in the Swell Valley series by best-selling author Tilly Bagshawe.
Henry Saxton-Brae has it all - he's a titled, self-made millionaire, and his fiancée just happens to be a supermodel who is as kind and loyal as she is ravishingly beautiful. To top it all, he's just bought Hanborough Castle, the jewel in the crown of Swell Valley.
Life couldn't be better...for someone who is ready to settle down. Can he really be the only man in the world not in love with his future wife?
Flora Fitzwilliam has been summoned by legendary designer Graydon James to restore Hanborough to its former glory. She soon discovers that it's not just the house that needs fixing, and Flora seems to be the only person who sees the real Henry Saxton-Brae.
Between her boss' waning talents and Henry's roving eye, Flora is being torn apart. Can she pull off the job and make Henry see that his bachelor days are behind him? Not since Rupert Campbell-Black has there been such a devastatingly sexy man in jodhpurs!
This author is trying to be Jilly Cooper which is no bad thing as she's a great writer, but her leading male just doesn't have what Rupert Campbell Black does. I mean he is actually a nasty character with no redeeming points where Rupert is at least great with kids and the underdogs. I found myself not wanting him to get the girl as he didn't deserve her.

I cannot wait to listen to more of the books Scarlett Macks narrates. Tilly Bagshaw outdid herself with the unpredictable book.
