    This is an engaging historical romance

    Anna Steele dreams of one thing that she wants for herself; not to be controlled by a man. Her other dream stars Struthers, but that one she prefers not to admit to except as a pestilence. Her independence dream comes true when she inherits a ton on money that enables her to move out of her father's home.

    Anna cannot help but intervene when her half-sister married Maddie is in a scandalous position in which her husband icy Lord Milson will shoot first and then ask no questions. Prim and proper, Anna pushes a hunk against a wall and kisses him. Just back from India, Alexander Struthers is shocked by the brazen beauty who has compromised them. Affluent he does not want a wife he is now engaged to the pushy woman. Each is attracted to the other, but neither is used to revealing their feelings especially their fears so they do what they always did; hide them. Meanwhile Anna's family places her in a nasty situation while Alex has nightmares over the cost of how he became rich.

    This is an engaging historical romance starring two intriguing self-control freaks who find love a nuisance that belongs in a "madhouse" but not in their lives. Anna's unfeeling two-dimensional family members, who are hostile towards her for her attempts to counter the harm they did to others, detract from an otherwise strong tale as they appear underdeveloped and ruled by avarice and selfishness. The lead pair is a fresh couple due to their independent natures causing their desire for detachment foiled by kisses (and other sexual gyrations), they make for a fun tale.

    These people do not belong together

    Sadly, this is a story about 2 unlikable people who shouldn't be married. They can't communicate and that is the basis for most of the plot in this novel. All of this makes it very diffucult to read to the happily-ever-after ending.
