Violet has never known any freedom. Her father dictated her life and made sure her world was very small. Unfortunately his death doesn't bring the release she seeks, her father still doesn't want her to make her own choices and has limited her options through his will. Violet is forced to either marry the man of his choosing or become entirely penniless and alone, which means she has to marry the insufferable Captain Lance Amberton. If they'd exchange vows he would gain plenty of money and Violet will have a title. However, there's a lot she has to give up if she'd say yes. What should she do? Lance isn't as mean as Violet thinks he is. He doesn't particularly want to get married either, but his brother is missing and he has to step in. That's why he offers Violet as much space in their marriage as she desires. She can travel, will have her own money and can do whatever she pleases. They will sleep in separate rooms and he will give her everything she needs. Violet is tempted to accept this generous offer, even if it means she might not find love, but can she trust Lance and will he keep his promises? Does Violet actually want him to be this honorable or will spending time with Lance change her wishes? Captain Amberton's Inherited Bride is a wonderful romantic story. Lance is the black sheep of the family. He has quite a reputation, but people can change. After his brother's disappearance Lance wants to do the right thing, only that doesn't always prove to be easy. He has a big challenge ahead of him. Violet might look adorable, but she's fierce, intelligent and determined. Her father forced her to be obedient, but she no longer tolerates being bossed around. I loved that about her character. She has a fantastic fiery spirit and she needs it when she's around the moody Lance. There are plenty of sparks between them and I couldn't wait to find out where their story would lead. Jenni Fletcher has written a fantastic entertaining book. I loved the vivid descriptions of her main characters' personalities and their surroundings. She makes everything she writes about come to life in a delightful way and her story has the exact right atmosphere. There are plenty of fascinating twists and turns that kept me captivated from beginning to end and I read Captain Amberton's Inherited Bride in one sitting. It's an amazing heartwarming story that put a big smile on my face.
