Overview

Jane Fitzsimmons is a most capable young woman who has been working in her father's shipping business for years. But when her father banishes her from the office for a supposed indiscretion, she ends up in London with her friend Elizabeth, interviewing prospective bridegrooms.

Phillip Wessington, the Earl of Rosewood will lose his estate if he doesn't marry for money and quickly. Jane decides to visit Wessington unannounced and gets an eyeful of Phillip and his mistress.

Yet, it becomes clear there is no choice for Jane and Phillip, and she succumbs to his wooing and to a bad marriage. To find peace, Jane travels to his troubled Rosewood estate with his 12-year-old daughter, Emily, leaving Phillip in London.

Jane turns his estate into both a home and a money-making enterprise that earns her considerable respect from Phillip. Yet the bumpy road to love takes more turns when old lovers, Emily's near-rape, and more misunderstanding separate the couple until they are brought together by the birth of a baby.

    Simply lovely and Beautiful!!!

    What a beautiful love story. One of Cheryl Holt's bests. At first I was disgusted with the 'Hero' Phillip, but he redeemed himself in the end. Read it in one night. Couldn't stop reading it...I JUST had to know if Phillip became a better man. I had my doubts in the beginning. But as always there was a happily ever after! Cant go wrong with this one!
