Farmer’s daughter Charlotte Greenacre regrets attending a matchmaker’s party when she has to spend it avoiding her enemy, Lord Robert Overby! Until she learns the handsome widower is not the villain she thought — and after his unhappy marriage he doesn’t want a new wife. That should mean she can relax in his company — if it weren’t for the irritating flare of attraction between them!
I received a copy of this book from Mills and Boon via NetGalley.
Charlotte finds herself at a house party of a benevolent lady determined to help young debutantes have the season they deserve. Charlotte doesn’t see marriage on her horizon but running the family farm after her father’s sudden death. Charlotte is a quirky and likeable character. Robert has a scandalous unhappy marriage in his past and is not looking to find another wife. He is attracted to independently spirited Charlotte, and despite misunderstandings and misconceptions about each other, they cannot deny their mutual attraction.
I enjoyed this Regency romance that reflects the society of the time and the developing romance between Charlotte and Robert. A vividly described setting full of pertinent historical detail and a believable cast of supporting characters make this an engaging, humorous and romantic escapist story,
