Miss Isabelle Catherine (Cat) Hutting is desperate to get out of her parent's home. Not that she doesn't love her family, she does. But there are so many people in the family that she never gets any time to do what she dreams of...to write a book.
When the Spinster House is suddenly vacated, her dreams seem to be coming true. Unfortunately, two other spinsters also want the house. She also doesn't count on being attracted to the owner of the house, when he shows up in town to see to the leasing of his property.
Haunted by a curse given by the original owner of Spinster House stating that "No duke shall live to see his heir's birth", Marcus, the Duke of Hart, is prepared to spend a couple of days in town to find a new resident and then be on his merry way. He didn't count on falling for a woman who had no plans of getting married.
What can two people who didn't ever plan on getting married do when they fall for each other?
I loved this story!! We were introduced to Cat in In the Spinster's Bed and I had hoped we would see more of her. She is older and I think this always makes for a more interesting character. Then we have Marcus, who is definitely not ready to marry especially when it means his certain death.
I liked reading the transformation of these two characters going from not wanting to marry to falling in love with each other. I can't wait to read about the next resident of Spinster House!
