Finding her childhood friend almost dead in the local cemetery, Hannah Foster decides it is her job to nurse the wounded Viscount Blackthorn back to health. Being a confirmed spinster, Hannah doesn't see anything wrong with her staying at his home with the elderly servants.
Coming home to die, William is surprised to find himself still alive with an angel tending his wounds. Determined to end the curse that has plagued his family for generations, he fights his growing attraction for Hannah.
When they must marry to satisfy society's dictates, they decide not to consummate their marriage. Will their marriage survive without the intimacies that would bring them closer to each other?
I really enjoyed this story, the first that I have read by this author. The heroes of romance novels are not often physically wounded and that was a nice change of pace (not that I have anything against a perfectly formed male body, LOL!)
I really liked Hannah, probably because she was a little bit bossy. She was use to running her father's household, so when she is nursing the Viscount the "woman in charge" just kinda kicked in. I loved that the author had the H/H both be virgins and that William got tips from his father's book collection (how else is a guy to know, LOL!)
I'll definitely be picking up more books by this author and can't wait for the next installment of this series which stars Hannah's friend, Grace.
