"After the death of Grace Thatcher’s grandfather, the Duke of Salisbury, Grace wants nothing more than to live quietly in the country with her younger siblings. But her father’s debts thwart those plans, and to protect her sister, Helen, Grace must marry a man of her father’s choosing.
As each suitor proves less than desirable, Grace comes up with clever schemes, causing each to reject her. While staying at the mysterious Sutherland Hall, a middle-of-the-night mishap sends Grace into the arms of a stranger, Nicholas Sutherland—and provides inspiration for her grandest plan yet—one that will leave her reputation in tatters yet free both her and Helen from all possibility of marriage. But when Grace meets Mr. Samuel Preston, a true gentlemen and sworn enemy of Nicholas Sutherland, instead of being free, Grace is caught between two men—each with his own agenda."
Grace just wants a normal life not just for her, but her younger brother and sister. Away from her Father's debt and greedy tendencies. To do that she has to create a scandal. Nicholas seems to know all about scandal and when Grace includes him in her plans, without his knowledge, things end up the exact opposite of what she had planned. They will both end up needing each other, not just for business. They don't realize it, but they are both in need of each others love.
Loved this novel! It was a bit long, but well worth the trouble. Lots of fun and excitement. Romance, Drama, Intrigue are all waiting inside these pages. I am excited to read the sequels that are with Helen, Graces younger sister, and her brother Christopher. I am a fan of Michele's books and own a few others. Cant go wrong!
