Lady Alexandra Hobbs is the younger daughter of the Duke of Huntley. She has wanted to marry Lord Owen Monroe since he rescued her brother and stable hand from some baddies outside of her window. Lord Owen has been given the ultimatum that he needs to marry. And the Duke chooses Alex's spoiled rotten older sister, Lavinia to marry Owen.
Valerie Bowman is one of my favorite authors. But, I just could not get past Lavinia. I wanted to walk into the book and slug her. Then, I wanted to find her parents and yell at them. Sorry, this ended up on the DNF pile because of one obnoxious character that dominated the book. I gave it three stars because I liked the ending. Not Ms. Bowman's fault that I hated Lavinia.
I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
