Oliver York returns from war to find his father dead, his finances in arrears, and himself the new Earl of Carlisle. If he doesn't marry an heiress—and fast!—he and his tenants are going to be pitching tents down by the Thames. He definitely shouldn't be trading kisses with a penniless debutante... no matter how captivating she is!
Miss Grace Halton is in England just long enough to satisfy the terms of her dowry. But a marriage of convenience isn’t as easy as she’d hoped. Back in America, her ailing mother needs medicine only Grace’s dowry can afford. Which means the dashing earl she can't get out of her mind is the one man she can't let into her heart.

 My Thoughts:
 This was one of those no build up, instantly fall head over heels in love stories. Secondary characters weren't fleshed out even the smallest bit. Grace didn't seem to "fit" into her setting and year. There are expectations and while it's always a little fun to be the one that doesn't conform - there has to be some middle ground.

For some reason, perhaps maybe even my mood while reading - though I'm not sure - I just couldn't get into it and see the wonderful writing in this book. In my opinion there were a lot of missed opportunities to really play on some of the other characters I wondered about (friends, grandparents, etc) and possibly missed opportunities for some really great future series books.

 My Rating: 2 of 5
