This is book 1 in the Daughter's of Amhurst series.
Lady Henrietta Beauchamp loves her ancestral home, but when a distant relative inherits the Earldom the family has to move out. Several years later, the family learns that the earl is looking for a bride. Wanting her home back, Henrietta throws her hat into the ring during the house party the earl throws.
Simon Devere, the Earl of Amhurst, needs an heir and for that her needs a wife. Knowing that a beautiful woman would only bring him grief, Simon is determined to marry a woman that he has no hope of desiring. But he soon finds himself wildly attracted to the late earl's daughter, who only wants the to marry him to get her home back.
Can this unlikely pair find a love that they didn't know they were looking for?
I really enjoyed this story. Simon and Henrietta seemed like an unlikely pair when they first meet, but you could see the attraction from their first meeting. They both had in their head what they wanted, but soon learned that what they need was completely different.
This is my first by Fowlkes, but it won't be my last!
