Miss Charlotte Cartwright has never forgotten Roland Temple’s contemptuous rejection of her hand in marriage. And she’s not about to forgive either—even if Roland, the new Earl of Amerleigh, is now older, wiser, and 10 times as handsome!
Roland has returned home from the wars to find much has changed, including his spitfire of a neighbor. He’s soon determined to right the wrongs of the past—and this time the hoyden will be his bride.
I would give this work a 5 had it not taken quite so long to resolve. I often feel that some period romances - and others probably - could have been about 50 pages shorter. The heroine is strong, which is good, but she tends to agonize over events to the point it feels like filler. However, there are other authors that are far worse in this regard. The narration was very well done. I will add both the author and narrator to my list.
