    Cecily White┬┐s father made a fortune in America and she had been

    Cecily White’s father made a fortune in America and she had been raised as a privileged young lady with numerous marriage prospects. However, Cecily was determined that the man she marry wanted to be with her because he loved her and not just to obtain her fortune.

    By contrast, the Earl of Graystone was heir to an old and respected title, but their family fortunes had suffered of late. His family urged him to marry an heiress, a young lady of suitable family and wealth, who could bring real life back into the line. Jared cannot imagine anything so cold blooded.

    Yet, when Cece meets Jared, she finds him to be charming and fun. The motor car he and his partner have designed shows real promise, too. All he needs is a little investment capital to get the production line in gear. Nevertheless, what girl doesn’t yearn to be swept off her feet? Surely, financing a factory for producing motor cars isn’t very romantic.

    Determined that Jared shouldn’t get off so easily, Cece leads him a merry chase through her family’s triumphs and foibles. Over the weeks, however, they fall more and more in love until there is no one else but Jared who seems destined to wed the cherished American princess.

    Delightful for its vintage style, décor and grace, intermingled with a charming romance from the previous generation. A lovely read for a beguiling afternoon.
