Publisher's Summary

Poor little Susie. A beautiful dreamer, she imagined herself happy in a rose-covered cottage, only to find herself mistress of a great damp castle and wife to the elderly Earl of Blackhall. Luck, not the lecherous earl, contrived to spare her, and by her wedding night she was transformed to a wealthy young widow. But her trials had just begun. The old countess was determined to turn the simple country miss into a sophisticated lady. Meanwhile, handsome Sir Giles was determined to unmask her as a dangerously cunning young minx.

Sweet, naïve Susie. Luck had brought her a fortune she'd never wished for, but what stroke of fortune could make her dreams of real and innocent love come true?

Susie and Giles: Unaware and angry

Any additional comments?

I like most of Beaton's books (some very much indeed), but this one was a disappointment. Giles spent most of his time in an angry state. Susie lived in a dream world. These characters were attracted to one another because? I'm afraid the author failed to put flesh on these characters for me. I didn't really care about them, but did finish the book.
