Charlotte is a spirited young woman, who viewed the prospective suitors, introduced to her by her aunt and uncle, as boring and dull. Never afraid to speak her mind she is seen as wilful and headstrong by her aunt, who despairs of finding a husband who is prepared to marry such a challenging woman.
Lord Pemberly III is seeking a bright and spirited bride, who he can mould into the perfect wife. He is entranced by the beauty and character of Charlotte and, in his own words, sees her as “a maverick…who has spirit and zest” … “who he is eager to …lead into his garden of dark decadent delights”. (What a delicious phrase!)
This book is charming, well written and has two captivating characters, and maintained my interest from beginning to end. I read the whole book on a wet, cold, Bank Holiday Monday, and was sorry when it came to an end. The story was erotic, romantic and absorbing, and I loved it.
