Description from Amazon:
For Miss Charlotte Windham, the best way to maintain her spinsterhood-and her independence-is a teeny, tiny brush with scandal. She chooses wealthy, handsome upstart Lucas Sherbourne as her unwitting accomplice. He’s intelligent, logical, and ambitious. What Charlotte doesn’t count on is that one kiss will lead them straight to the altar.
Sherbourne has no love for polite society, nor is he keen on being anybody’s husband of last resort. He is attracted to Charlotte’s boldness, though-and her family’s influence. Without a title, he knows he’ll never truly be part of their world, even as he and Charlotte inch closer to a marriage that means much more than convenience. But a scheming business partner is about to test that tenuous trust, forcing Sherbourne to make a drastic choice: his wealth or his wife.

I Love Grace Burrowes’ writing. If you do a search on my blog you will see that I have read many of her novels and enjoyed them to the tune of 4.5-5 stars. This is her most recent addition to her Windham Brides series and is another pure escapist delight. I love that her dialog feels like the Regency era. She rarely injects modern “speak”. She also gives us some 19th century words that may be confusing if you don’t have a dictionary handy. Who knew that a coal mine was called a colliery? (If you read on Kindle like I do, this is no problem; you just highlight and a dictionary entry pops up.)
In this book we are treated to Charlotte Windham’s romance with a man beneath her station, business man Lucas Sherbourne. They are found in a compromising situation and forced to marry but neither objected. They are taking their time getting to know each other but this is not without problems. Side characters from previous books in the series play important rolls in the dramas that ensue. A villain who is totally uncouth adds to the excitement. This is a standalone novel but it will encourage you to read the other books in the series.
I highly recommend this book as well as this series.
