Not knowing what his future holds, Robert Milton, travels to London to settle his deceased mother's estate. He didn't count on finding a beautiful woman hanging around his mother's home.
Isabel Durham had been the companion to Robert's mother for the last year. Trying to determine what to do with her life, she decides to stay until Robert takes care of the estate. Getting a letter from her uncle telling her she must marry, Isabel approaches Robert with the idea to ruin her. She wants time to figure out her life and if ruined the man picked out for her won't want her.
But what happens when the two of them realize that they won't more than one night together?
This is the second book of five that tells the story of the residents of the Duke of Beckworth's estate. Having read all 5 of them, I would definitely recommend reading them all together, although they could each be read as stand alone.
I enjoyed this short story by Medeiros. The attraction between Robert and Isabel was there from the beginning and it couldn't be denied by either off them, no matter how hard they tried. Two people who didn't want to get married, find that with the right person, marriage is just what they were looking for.
