Trevor Andedsley has been cut off by his grandfather, the Duke, until he gets engaged. He escapes his creditors by going to visit his old tutor, Mr. Smithson. Mellie Smithson is trapped in the country. She has a new formula for a women's cream. However, she is stuck in the country because if she produces it, her father gets the money. Throw in the obsessed half cousin, Ronnie, that wants to marry Mellie to the mix.
I loved the humor in this novel. The characters were well written. I enjoyed Trevor's transformation from spoiled lordling to honorable man. This was a great read.
I received this novel as an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
