Jeremy Landon has spend the last ten years paying all of his uncles debts and rebuilding his estates after he inherited the title of Earl of Bennington from his uncle. He has one last debt to pay but Lady Rushworth is refusing to see him. On his last attempt, he is successful though she has manipulated him into marrying her ward.
Lady Eliza Burke has spent her entire life living under her mother's oppressive rule and life is more unbearable with her father gone. She promised to look after her cousin Christiana. Now, her mother is marrying her off to the Earl of Bennington. Eliza attempts to break off the marriage but ends up marrying the Earl herself!
Eliza believed that she would never find love. When her new marriage started to show promise, a scandal threatened to tear them apart. Can Eliza and her Earl find their happiness?
This book is why I love historical romance. I loved the characters and the plot. Every time I thought that Jeremy and Eliza would find common ground, something else happened! The one thing that kept being brought up but never addressed was how Christiana was Eliza's half sister. That was never fully explained. It would have been a wonderful way to have Lady R being her evil self.
I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
