As each suitor proves less than desirable, Grace comes up with clever schemes, causing each to reject her. While staying at the mysterious Sutherland Hall, a middle-of-the-night mishap sends Grace into the arms of a stranger, Nicholas Sutherland—and provides inspiration for her grandest plan yet—one that will leave her reputation in tatters yet free both her and Helen from all possibility of marriage.
Too late Grace regrets her rash actions when her father’s last choice, Mr. Samuel Preston, proves to be a gentleman and a friend. But Samuel is the sworn enemy of Nicholas Sutherland, the man responsible for her “ruin.” Now instead of being free, Grace is caught between two men—each with his own agenda.
I'm really glad I had the chance to review this book. I saw it and immediately knew it was a book that I wanted to read. Sweet and clean romances are right up my alley.
Michele Holmes does a fantastic job of setting up the time, place and characters in this book. I loved how friendships and romances developed slowly but never left me feeling bored or anxious. It was a great book from beginning to end. Such a great diversion!
Grace is tenacious. She is a fighter but in a very soft way. She knows hard work from a hard life but still remains gentle and full of hope and love.
I loved the play on the title throughout the book. The cover is gorgeous! I hope this author continues to write along these lines. Yay for clean romances!!
