A charming, delightful new regency romance series from author on the rise Anna Bennett!
She needed a husband of convenience. She got her one true love instead...
Miss Fiona Hartley's huge dowry should have ensured that finding a husband would be quick. True, she's a tad older than the average debutante, and spends too much time sketching brutally honest character portraits. She desperately needs a husband so she can access her dowry, lest the man blackmailing her reveals a secret that would ruin her family. So desperate in fact, that she's willing to do the unthinkable—propose marriage to the most surly, irritable gentleman in town...
As a matter of principle, David Gray, the Earl of Somerdale, avoids two types of women: those who are obviously desperate, and those who are stark-raving mad. And it soundly appears Miss Fiona Hartley is both. Yet David can't help but be drawn to her, and gives her a test—if she can spend one week in his dilapidated estate—the same one that caused his previous fianceé to jilt him—then he'll consider her proposal. But as the week goes on, Fiona's refreshing wit finds a way into his heart. What started out as a marriage of convenience has turned into love... but will Fiona have him for the rest of her days?
