In 1821 Viscount Spencer Law accompanied his brother Nat to Philadelphia where he meets attractive Abigail Mercer and her ailing father, owner of Mercer Medicinal Company. Nat wants to own half of Mercer Medicinal, but Spencer has some doubts yet promises to fund the venture. However, the Home office calls Spencer back to England so he leaves Nat behind in the states................................ A year later, Spencer waits for the arrival of Nat, who is late to his own engagement party to lady Evelina. However, instead of Nat¿s grand entrance, Abigail, in mourning due to her beloved father¿s death enters claiming to be Spencer¿s wife by proxy. Apparently, Nat forged documents, stole Abigail¿s dowry, and sat in for Spencer at a ceremony. Spencer, who had no plans to marry due to a war injury leaving him unable to produce children, sells Abigail with the idea of a marriage of convenience until they find his wastrel brother who is in hiding.................................... Before readers draw negative conclusions about Nat, he paid for Abigail to cross the Atlantic Ocean. Thus he is much more complex than just the first brush con artist that he seems. Spencer is an intriguing lead protagonist firmly believing he has no future and that the heir must come from Nat. Abigail is a charmer who makes Spencer feels whole. Regency romance fans will have good feelings towards author Sabrina Jeffries for this enjoyable historical............................... Harriet Klausner

THIS BOOK WAS THE ABSOLUTE WORST. tHE HERO WAS ARROGANT TO THE POINT OF BEING OBXOXIOUS AND VERY HARD ON THE HEROINE TO THE POINT OF BEING ABSUSIVE. vERY ABSUIVE. I COULD NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT THE HEROINE SAW IN HIM BUT I GUESS IT TAKES ALL KINDS. SOME WOMEN LIKE THAT, AND OTHERS LIKE TO WRITE ABOUT IT. SAVE YOU MOENY FOR SOME OTHER BOOK. THE BEST PART OF THIS ONE WAS THE GUY ON THE COVER. IT REALLY IS TOO BAD YOU CAN'T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER.

    Another wonderful novel by Sabrina Jeffries. In this this story

    Another wonderful novel by Sabrina Jeffries. In this this story we are introduced to Abigail Mercer and Spencer Law. 

    Abigail met Spencer when he accompanied his brother on a business trip to the States. Immediately taken in by the dashing Viscount
    that treats her as an equal and respects her opinion, even though she is a female, how can she help but fall in love with him. When she
    is approached by his brother after Spencer's departure professing a deep affection and offering to marry her by proxy, she jumps at the
    offer. Little does she know that Spencer has no clue what his brother has done.

    Spencer thinks that Miss Mercer is everything he would want in a wife. She is intelligent, smart, and beautiful. If he had any intentions of
    marrying ever, he would hope to marry someone like her. He has decided he will never marry and that any heirs to be produced will come
    from his brother. So while he still thinks about Abigail once he has returned to England he knows that he will not see her again. Or will he?

    When Abigail shows up on his doorstep with papers in hand proving they have been wed by proxy, Spencer must figure out how he can
    solve his dilemma. He does not wish to be married and yet how can he resist Abigail now that she is his wife. And where has his brother
    disappeared to, as he is the one with all the answers and Miss Mercer's dowry? 

    Meanwhile, can Abigail convince Spencer that a marriage between them is what they both need and desire? She has a hard time seeing
    the caring gentleman in Spencer as he is now the unfeeling Viscount. As they both fall deeper in love, can Spencer give himself the
    opportunity to find happiness with Abigail? She will accept no less and deserves no less than his full commitment. And will Abigail be
    able to be the wife that Spencer needs?

    A wonderful tale of two individuals who are perfect for each other. They both need to accept themselves for great individuals they are to
    truly be happy with one another.

    Loved it!

    Lord Ravenswood met his perfect match. I loved that he had to be brought down to his knees, metaphorically, before he could accept Abby because as he was, the relationship would never have worked. So I am glad that for once, he didn't get to control everything. And Abby was just too cute!
