Molly Conwell's life has been quite unremarkable - until she learns the startling details of her late employer Lady Woodhart's will: the sum of 30,000 pounds will be divided equally between the deceased's grandson, Viscount "Hart" Woodhart, and Molly if they wed. If one or the other fails to appear, then the present party receives the entire fortune. Molly has no intention to wed Hart, but if she inherits the money she could help her brother regain his proper place in Society. Besides, she's convinced that her prospective groom, who has always accused her of being a fortune hunter, will not present himself. As Molly embarks on a daring charade, she discovers a fierce opponent in Hart - and an even fiercer desire for this dangerously handsome man who may prove impossible to resist...Fortunately, this story features likable characters, as the plot (and the heroine's and her brother's repentance for their greedy ways) seems a bit sketchy, improbable and formulaic. This book came out in June 2005, and I purchased it at my local used book store.Englishrose
I think this is a delightful read. I love the play between the two main characters. The ways they devise to try to get the other to cry off always make me laugh. The romance and situations are believable and leave you feeling good. Good side characters really make up the plot and story and fill in the gaps. I would recommend this to anyone with a little sense of humor.http://cleanromancereviews.blogspot.comKaren Kirst
Regency romance is one of my favorite genres. I enjoy Debbie's writing style, the emotion she evokes and her distinctly drawn characters. Loved the battle of wits between Hart and Molly. I was hoping there would be a book about Hart's cousin, Thorpe. I haven't yet seen if there is one or not. Definitely recommend.
