After a tragic event, Conner Douglas is being forced to marry a respectable woman. With all of his considerable charm, while he loathes the thought of having a wife, figures this won’t be a problem. He even knows the right woman, his best friend’s sister, Thea. After wasting 6 weeks in a drunken stupor, he finally arrives to find out that strong-willed Thea decided to elope with a local farmer. Determined he can woo her away from her intended, he catches up with the couple and starts to work out his plan.
While the basic plot is one I seem to be finding more and more lately, this book was really good. I loved Thea’s spit fire and determination to not fall for Conner’s charm while discovering passion for the first time. As with many of this author’s books, the side characters and their interactions were some of my favorite parts. Alice, in particular, was hilarious. Loved it. I highly recommend.
