Will Dorning has always been he keeper of his rambunctious brothers. He is the one to get them out of trouble when needed and to make sure they have what they need. Knowing that he can never give up his duty, he is destined to never marry. But when he reconnects with childhood friend, Lady Susannah Haddonfield, he wonders if there might be something else in store for his future.
Susannah is worried about her sister's prospects. The one man that has taken a liking to her sister, holds a distain for Susannah for her dislike of dogs. She turns to Will for help, the one man that came to her rescue during her coming out. Already having a crush on Will, her feeling for him grow as they spend more time together.
Will knows that he can not support Susannah in the custom she is use to and refuses to let things go too far until he is capable of supporting her. Can Susannah get Will to realize that their love can survive anything?
I really enjoyed this story. I love Will and need to make sure that his brothers had what they needed even if it meant that he went without something. That really tells you what kind of man he really is. Then we have Susannah, who will do anything for her sister, even try to like something that she has never enjoyed.
I think another reason I really enjoyed this story was that Will and Susannah were friends first. We see them getting to know one another again and even thought each is attracted to the other, they don't act on it for some time. The love grows from the friendship and that was awesome to watch happen.
The next book in the series comes out this summer. I for one, can't wait to read it!
