Brooke Culpepper resigned herself to spinsterhood when she turned down the only marriage proposal she'd likely ever receive to care for her family. After her father dies, a distant cousin inherits the estate and becomes their guardian but permits Brooke to act in his stead.
Heath, Earl of Ravensdale, is none-too-pleased to discover five young women call the dairy farm he won and intends to sell, their home. Desperate, pauper poor, and with nowhere to go, Brooke proposes a wager. His stakes? The farm. Hers? Her virtue. The land holds no interest for Heath, but Brooke does and he accepts her challenge.
Brooke loses, and her devastation is compounded when the cousin arrives, intending to haul the Culpepper misses off to London. Heath astounds himself and proposes in order to apply for guardianship of the other girls. Does Brooke dare marry the handsome stranger who'd been bent on compromising her? Will Heath regret his impulsive gesture, or will unexpected love flourish?

Great story..Awesome narration..

Love this story!
Yes, I would (and have) definitely recommend to a friend.
So hard to choose, but I'm going to say Heath. I felt a bit sorry for him when he was thrown into the dovecote. He's endearing, and I love that he wants to take care of not only Brooke, but all the ladies.
Yes, definitely! I love the historical touches Ms. Cameron adds to her novels - the language and funny sayings, the way of dress and accessories, and historical facts. I always learn something new about the period when I read her books.
Nothing. She was fabulous! She does such a great job of capturing each character's personality and giving each of them a distinctive voice.
Love the author and narrator - would listen to anything by this dynamic duo!
