Annabel Winslow has one goal in mind, to prevent her family from falling into complete poverty. So when she travels to London for the season to search for the most advantageous match she soon finds herself pursued by a much older Earl, but beggars can’t be choosers her family is depending on her. What she did not expect was the stranger who kissed her on the heath when she learns his name things could not get any worse.
Sebastian Grey is the heir to an Earldom one he does not really care if he inherits from his uncle or not since they seem to hate each other. He would much rather be writing his books his one pleasure he cannot share with anyone. When he finds himself kissing a beautiful woman on the heath he is intrigued but he is not looking for a relationship and as quick as she is there she is gone.
When Sebastian causes rumors to spread about Annabel he has to do the only thing that will fix it, he must court her, of course it is all an act he has no plans on marrying. Annabel enjoys her time spent with Sebastian he is handsome, smart and funny why could he not also be rich to save her family. As the days go by it has become a contest of wills between Sebastian and his uncle who will win Annabel in the end?
Julia Quinn has created the story for all full of romance and humor. Sebastian is full of sarcasm and quips that make you chuckle and Annabel holds her own against him it is a true match except of course Sebastian is not rich. I found myself laughing through out the whole book and I always love a good romance.
I rate this book:
