Lady Araminthea Collins was forced into service as a companion by circumstance. Noah Winters, the Duke of Anselm was planning on marrying her current charge, Marliss, the daughter of Viscount Endmon when another suitor staked a claim first. Anselm makes a very hard to resist proposal to Lady Thea. When they marry, Anselm finds that things aren't as he anticipated. He has to court his own wife.
I loved how Thea and Anselm grew as their marriage progressed. There are several misconceptions that make up the plot. The one is very transparent while the other surprised me when it was resolved. The supporting characters added to the depth of the novel. I was hooked from the opening sentence to the end.
I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you.
