    Historical Romance

    Grace Alnott’s father has stipulated she must marry a peer to receive her inheritance so her idea is to find a poor man with a title to marry her but he will have to abide by her terms. Everett Hetherington, Earl of Westbury was in the military when his father and later his brother, the heir, died. He is back from war and destitute thus willing to engage in a marriage of convenience… He wants to save his estate and she wants to get her money in hopes of freeing her young brother from the man that is currently his guardian. Grace and Everett do marry but they keep secrets from one another that later come out and create problems. I enjoyed this book but wished that Grace and Everett had been honest from the beginning. They were attracted to one another but both so guarded that it was difficult for them to really connect on all levels. I wanted to sit the two of them down and have them talk openly but that just didn’t seem to happen. I wanted to know a bit more about some of the other characters in the book: Everett’s brother George, Grace’s friends Caroline and Maurice, Lord Rayner and even Grace’s parents. I would also have liked to know how the issue with the cattle ended and perhaps whether or not Everett ended up with an heir. NOTE: I did look up Rinderpest, the disease that was attacking the cattle on Everett’s estate. It was lethal and continued to plague animals for over a decade after this story took place even into the early 21st century. Did I enjoy the book? Yes Would I read another book by this author? Yes Thank you to NetGalley and Entangled Publishing-Amara for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

    I Loved It

    Miss Grace Alnott has been put in a very uncomfortable position by her fathers Will. He has placed her little brother and his very large inheritance in the hands of his friend Lord Rayner. The idea was to force her to marry the man. Her dowry will only be released if she marries a Lord. She needs to find one that will agree to her terms. Everett Hetherington, the new Earl of Westbury is in desperate need of a lot of money. His brother gambled away the last of the estate's money, and now disease is devastating his farmer's herds. A wealthy bride is a necessity. A simple agreement to help both partners get what they want should work, but only when they are honest about it. An emotional, sexy and at times complicated story with wonderful characters. They are both good people with difficult decisions to make. It is very easy to be drawn into their lives, and be thankful for the women who worked so hard for their rights. I loved it.

    loved it.

    This is the first novel that I have read of hers and I must say " Bravo". It is about a second son that becomes an Earl and has to figure out some way to pay the debts that his father and brother left behind. The estate is in bad shape. Everette Hethering, Earl of Westbury, he has been left with a mess and his mother, he is not sure what to do with either. He is looking for an heiress to help. Grace Alnott, is the daughter of trade. Her father owned very successful stores and tried to force her to marry a very unsuitable man. Her brother was made ward of this same man. I loved this story, Poor Lord Westbury, he tried but was so afraid, that he could not convince her to give him enough money to pay off the last debts. I enjoyed the characters they were very realistic and so full of life. It was nice watching the interactions between them. The plot is a little twisty but the author has everything under control and has managed to write a great story. I read from the beginning to end, could not put it down. I received this ARC from Net Galley and voluntarily reviewed it.

    Wonderful!

    This story captures all the best of historical romance. The hero and heroine who by chance find each other and enter into a marriage of convenience that will satisfy their immediate needs. With "I have to marry a lord" being the first line in the story said by Grace Arnott, I knew this was going to be intriguing. But it was infinitely so much more. Grace's father had been a successful merchant that had recently passed away and had left in his will that she must marry a peer in order to obtain her inheritance and control of her younger brother Henry. Henry had been put in the guardianship of a despicable lord who wanted Grace for himself. Desperate, the word is circulated so that she might find that man quickly. Everett Hetherington, the Earl of Westbury is forced to look for a rich match to help him get out of financial trouble due to the mess his father and older brother had left before their deaths. Both attending a ball, Grace is the first person he sees and the stage is set. But Grace has many stipulations regarding their marriage of convenience. She will give Everett six weeks living at his estate and he is determined to win her over to be a "real" wife. Of course Grace is very jaded against aristocrats due to being looked down upon for so long as merchant class. Sound simple? Well it is anything but. This story had a little of it all. Secrets, suspense and such strong emotions that will pull at your heart. There is a lot at stake for Everett to convince Grace to stay as a real wife, but most of all the love he has begun to feel for her. Can the two truly find love and can Grace save her brother from his appointed guardian? Prepare to not be able to put this story down as you turn the first page. I cannot wait for more from this author and know you will feel the same!
