In this irresistible Regency romance by award-winning author Elizabeth Mansfield, a stubbornly single noblewoman has five months to find a husband - or become instantly penniless.
Time is running out for 25-year-old Lady Margaret Underwood. Desperate to retain the independence that her considerable fortune affords her, she accepts the proposal of Viscount Charles Isham. But after a few hours in his stultifying company, she does what any woman would do: She flees. A snowstorm and a carriage mishap lead to rescue by a seductive stranger.
Soon Meg is ensconced in the Yorkshire estate of Sir Geoffrey Carrier, a soldier harboring a painful secret. And there's more stormy weather ahead for a man sworn to remain single and a woman who refuses to be married off as they discover the perils and pleasures of falling in love.

"Pride and prejudice..."
...with a primary female character reminiscent of Scarlett O'Hara and a "still-water-runs-deep" male. Don't expect the Frost Fair till the end, but it is fun.
