Overview

Dear Lady Truelove,

My ward is driving me crazy. I have to marry her off and get her out of my life. There’s just one problem…

When Jonathan Deverill promised a dying friend he’d be guardian to the man’s daughter, he envisioned a girl in pigtails and pinafores, a child he could leave behind in some finishing school. Problem is, his ward is actually a fully-grown, defiant beauty whose longing for romance threatens to make his guardianship a living hell.

New York heiress Marjorie McGann wants a London season and a titled husband who can help her spend the Yankee millions she’s inherited, and she thinks her new British guardian is the perfect person to help her find him. But Jonathan has no intention of letting his friend’s fortune be squandered. Under his watchful, protective eye, Marjorie finds romance hard to come by . . . until one fateful night when her own guardian’s devastating kisses makes her wonder if the greatest romance of all might be right in front of her.

Laura Lee Guhrke comes to the blog today with the fourth book in her Dear Lady Truelove story, this one involves Jonathan Deveriill who fled England to prove himself to his father and sisters, and is just returning with the mantle of guardianship of his late partner’s daughter, a now young woman that he never expected in Marjorie McGann. An American, heiress in her own right, and determined to make her own life similar to those of her well-to-do schoolmates, Marjorie has followed Jonathan to England, much to his despair. Jonathan never expected a fully grown, beautiful woman when he went to meet his “ward’, in fact, he had only heard of her existence from his partner before he died of tuberculosis. Being the money savvy and more business-like of the two, while Jonathan has amassed his own wealth, that which Marjorie inherited will leave her in a position to be a fortune-hunters dream – so he was understandably dismayed to find her aboard the ship bound for England, as he planned to reunite with his sisters after many years in the hopes that they will chaperone Marjorie for the next few months as he plans to head off again on anther adventure disguised as urgent business. A bit of a slow burn, Marjorie is wholly naïve and unfamiliar with the world, and angry about her father’s desertion and Jonathan’s plans to leave her ‘stranded’ as a teacher in the school she long ago graduated from. Determined to live an exciting life where she chooses her next step, Jonathan is both an obstacle to avoid and one she can’t help be attracted to. But his own statements about not settling down, and seeing her handed off don’t sit well. What she is not seeing is Jonathan’s attraction to her, and his innate honor making him feel as if he’s caught in an unwinnable trap. Full of sparkling moments, conversations, situations where readers see the connection long before the characters do themselves, and the long-awaited but satisfying ending – the story fits all the others in this series and provides a lovely afternoon’s read. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via Edelweiss for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Two people who have a lot in common but do not realize it at all. Jonathan Deverill who lost his dream of owing and running the Deverill Publishing Company when his father disinherited him, had to go out on his own and make his fortune. So he felt a little lost even though he had done well. Marjorie McGann had been left at the boarding school when she was eight and had never seen her father since. So she felt abandoned until Johnathan came to let her know he was now her guardian since her father had passed away. Her father and he had made their fortune in the silver mines in America so he owed the man's wish he be guardian to his daughter after he died. A story of denial of feelings that are definitely there, deep wounds from the past and the desires of the heart that cannot be denied. Another delightful story by Laura Lee Guhrke, who is one of my favorite authors. I always look forward to reading her books because they never disappoint and always leave me with a smile and a sigh as I turn the last page! I read this through Edelweiss and the publisher! Lori D

I hae enjoyef for all of Laura's books -- until now. The plot was poor, the dialogue stilted. It feels like someone else wrote the story and her name was put on it

I had read the previous book in this series and really enjoyed it. Coupled with the synopsis, I was excited to read this one. I liked Marjorie and Jonathan well enough. She’s smart and wants something more. He has no idea what he’s doing and it’s delightful. Together there’s some button pushing and spirited arguing and I loved every second of it. There are loads of secondary characters and I had no idea who any of them were. Plot wise, it was a bit boring. My main complaint is that I didn’t see the leap from like to lust to love. There were a handful of conversations and two kisses and poof! They’re in love...too much telling, not enough showing. Overall, it was easy to root for these characters, but the story was lacking a spark I was hoping for. **Huge thanks to Avon Books for providing the arc free of charge**
