William, Viscount Wivenly, flees the marriage minded mamas in London only to find himself entangled in other problems when he reaches the West Indies. Having come to the Indies to ascertain the truth regarding his late uncle's business, William finds himself entranced by a "widow" he has a chance encounter with.
William soon learns that the woman he was attracted to is the step daughter of his late uncle and she wants nothing to do with him. Miss Eugenie Villaret wants to marry for love and she sure is not going to be some plaything for the visiting viscount.
What will happen when William and Eugenie find that they have to be married? Will Eugenie go through with it even when she won't have the marriage she has always dreamed of?
I liked this story. It's nice to read a story in this time period that doesn't occur in London. Having been to the islands, I loved reading a story set there.
I've kinda had a love-hate relationship with this author. I've loved the story lines, but not so much the writing. I think this is one of her better books. I did think that the secondary romancing couple was a bit far fetched (fell in love way too quickly!), but I really did enjoy the story.
It was nice to see the other H/H and catch up with their lives.
