Miss Grace Halton must find a husband that will let her take her dowry and go back to America to pay for the medicine that her mother desperately needs. Unfortunately, the man that she is attracted to needs her dowry just as bad as she does.
Oliver York, the Earl of Carlisle, must marry an heiress to salvage his estates from the damage that his father did. As much as they fight it, Oliver and Grace can't stop their attraction for each other and find suitable spouses.
What happens when they are caught in a compromising position?
I love Erica Ridley's writing. The stories that I have read by her have been shorter than most, yet they pack a mighty punch. She draws you into their world and gets you invested in the H/H just as a longer story would. It takes a rare author to be able to pull this off.
I loved reading about Grace and Oliver. From the first time they meet, they are drawn to each other and they know they can't marry the other. It's heartbreaking knowing that they are the perfect match for the other, yet it can't be.
I'm definitely sold on this series and can't wait for the rest of the books to come out!!
