At what point do we cease with all these rules of engagement?

At the turn of the 20th century having old money was treated with respect, but having new money put you in a state of being caught between the world you came from and not accepted in the one you long to be part of. For Miss Annabel Wheaton a newly moneyed Southern Bell...
At the turn of the 20th century having old money was treated with respect, but having new money put you in a state of being caught between the world you came from and not accepted in the one you long to be part of. For Miss Annabel Wheaton a newly moneyed Southern Belle the only way out of this rut is to marry a titled English man. No one thinks this is a good idea but Annabel is a determined steel magnolia who knows how to get her way.

Annabel¿s uncle is determined to stop a relationship doomed for disaster and hires a rake to make it all go away. The idea was for Christian du Quesne, the Duke of Scarborough to use his charm and make the wedding come to a screeching halt. What no one expected was for a complete explosion. Christian may be desperate to fill his family coffers but not enough to marry and yet here was Annabel now seeking a husband due to his action, which Christian is remiss to explain even to himself. Neither of them wants to depend on the other but the resolution to the issue appears to be the road of most resistance from both of them. Annabel and Christian will walk the correct path but where it will lead is the question right now.

Christian knows he should never love again but perhaps Annabel will be the salve to heal his heart and set him free. If wishes were hopes than the one answer both of them is seeking shall be found.

This is a wonderful combination of the still under development American life with established English culture. This book is a reflection of changes that happened in the colonies but still show the problems and how class order issues remain regardless of your side of the pond. Annabel is the best of what women have become and Christian is a man who knows change is coming and looks to embrace it.

very sad

This could be a wonderful book, if the author didn`t lost romance in the end. Who want`s to read in a love szene the encounter with an other lover. No duke would marry a girl with a past.

    Loved the book

    Love to get away to one of those novels that is full of romance. Good story, especially since I'm from the south.
