This story will go into my collection of favorite authors and books. Isabella has a marvelous plot for a wonderful book. It was nice to read a story without spies or wars or deaths. Harry, a Duke's son, came home with Julia who he wants to marry. He meets her plain sister Augusta. Harry gets tossed from his mount and breaks his leg in 2 places. Julia and Gus have to decide who and how they care for Harry. No spoilers here. You must read the book. Does Harry marry? Are the parents OK with the idea of marriage? There are lots of plot diversions to keep you guessing until the end. Give the book a chance and enjoy!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The Earl of Hargreave, Harry Fitzroy, heads to the country to finally propose to the beautiful Julia Barclay. Once there, they go on an early morning ride where Harry will finally get his chance to propose. Unfortunately, things don't go as planned and Harry is thrown from his horse. Having broken both bones in his leg, Harry is forced to convalesce at the Barclay home.
Lady Augusta, Gus, has always been in the shadow of her beautiful sister. But when Harry is injured, it is Gus and not Julia that steps up to make sure that his recovery goes smoothly.
Julia has run back to London and Gus must make excuses to Harry. Forever the one to look after everything, Gus does her best to entertain Harry while he recuperates. As Harry spends time with Gus, he realizes that he almost proposed to the wrong sister. He would have been miserable with Julia.
As he sets out to win the heart of Gus, he remembers how he became injured and is angry at himself. Because of his antics, he can not be the husband he would like to be for Gus. Can Gus convince him that he is good enough just as he is?
I really enjoyed this story. Gus was the ugly duckling that turned into the swan with the love of Harry.
When Harry is introduced, I felt he was kinda of an @$$. When he was injured, he started inviting all these people to Gus's home and having a bunch of things delivered, including his dogs. I was a little taken aback by his high-handedness, but then thought about how the son of a duke would have been raised. As a future duke, everything would have been catered to him and his every wish fulfilled. Then he realized that his feelings for Gus were more than just friendship and his actions made me fall in love with him. He wanted Gus to see herself as he saw her, not as she had seen herself her whole life
This is an awesome start to a new series and I can't wait for the rest of it to come out. This is the first book of Bradford's that I have read and I was impressed with it. I will definitely be going back and reading her Wylder Sisters series.
Thanks go to NetGalley and Ballentine Books for a copy of the book in exchange on an honest review.

I was so pleasantly surprised by this book! I absolutely loved it. I have to say, Harry & Gus are my new favorite couple. Their story was
so special and really touches my heart. The strength that both of the characters show is amazing. I loved that we got to meet both of the
families as well since they were so important to both of the main characters. The supporting characters were very well written, they
were whole but didn't take over the story. Julia and her drama were even put in the proper place and I was so glad to see how the
relationship between Julia and Gus played out. I would recommend this book VERY highly to any fan of historical romances.
