Sent to England under duress to land an acceptable husband, heiress Hannah Cooper, prickly and plagued with a limp, has no intention of marrying and can hardly wait to head home to Boston—sans husband—to make sure her family is safe from her scheming stepfather. But she must endure a Season first, and her host, Asher MacGregor, the new Earl of Balfour, who is also supposedly looking for a bride, is charged with seeing that all goes well. Although the chemistry between them flares, they both realize that their responsibilities lie on opposite sides of the Atlantic—unless they can find a solution. VERDICT A pair of seemingly ill-suited protagonists with more in common than they'd thought finally find trust and love in this engaging, deliciously sensual, superbly written romance by one of the genre's rising historical stars. Burrowes (Once Upon a Tartan) lives in rural Maryland.
