Publisher's summary

Lord Percy Nibley needs a wife, preferably before his mother’s nagging on the subject drives him to distraction. But being more comfortable with his rock collection than flirting, he’s not having a lot of luck.

In desperation, the shy nobleman enlists the help of Baron Marchmain - Lord August Bright. August is nothing short of dazzling. Charming, witty and amusing, he’s the darling of the ton, and a notorious heart-breaker.

August selects a suitable young lady for Lord Nibley; Miss Patience Pearson, a cool, level-headed woman, close to being on the shelf and with the reputation of a blue-stocking, meanwhile setting his own sights on capturing the heart of her vivacious younger sister, Caroline.

But Patience is not easily charmed, guarding her sister with the tenacity of a lioness and August must be at his most devastatingly charming to get past her defences.

Having finally done so, however...August isn’t at all sure he’s chosen the right sister.

Finding love

Absolutely love the story of August and Patience. August needed to find an Heiress to marry and thought he found the perfect one. But at time went on he realized it was her older sister Patience that he wanted.
When he realizes this is he to late to have the woman he loves. A beautifully written story and a fantastic narrator in Phillip Bartley.
