Robert Ashton is in for the surprise of a lifetime. His mother, a bit of a rebel, raised him away from the rest of the family, and it's not until he's contacted by his lawyer about an inheritance that he learns who he truly is: the new Earl of Hantford. His legacy includes ownership of the historic Ashton Park Estate - which needs repairs Robert cannot afford. He'll simply do what the nobility has done for centuries when in need of money. He'll marry it.
Tech wizard Daniel Fabian is wealthy and successful. In fact, he has almost everything - except a title to make him worthy in the eyes of the old-money snobs he went to prep school with. His high school reunion is looming, and he's determined to attend it as a member of the aristocracy.
That's where Robert comes in.
Daniel has the money, Robert has the name, and both of them know they can help each other out. But their marriage of convenience has the potential to become a real love match - unless a threat to Daniel's business ruins everything.

It was okay. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either. At least, not as much as I enjoyed the book.
The board room toward the end, very nice.
Not at all and that pains me. I really loved the eBook but the narrator did not do the story justice. I was so confused, more often than not, because he didn't even attempt to use a different accent. My suggestion, skip the audio and read the book, you'll love it.
Tams eBook review from December 2016...
Robert Ashton's usually boring life is turned upside down and inside out when he learns that he is the new Earl of Hantford after his uncles passing. His mother cut off all contact with her family and Robert has never really met any of them. The title and estates he's inherited aren't exactly up to snuff though. It will take money Robert doesn't have to polish up Historic Ashton Park Estate.
Daniel Fabien is wealthy and successful, but has never garnered the respect he thinks is deserved. Enter the lovely matchmaker for people of Daniel and Robert's status and there just might be a solution to both of their problems. You know what they say... one problem solved, several more arise.
Their marriage of convenience slowly evolves into something more as both men grow quite attached to each other. But neither is certain the other feels the same way. In the middle of Daniel and Robert opening up to each other they learn that the estate will take a bit more time, effort and money than initially expected. And then the bottom falls out when someone tries to steal Daniel's business that he built from the ground up, out from under him.
Grey is getting back to his squishy, sweet, romantic type of story with this new release and I absolutely loved it! I thoroughly enjoyed traveling the journey of friendship, self awareness and, eventually love with these two men. They were very much alike, and yet, quite different. It wasn't all sunshine and roses from the start, they had to work together to figure everything out. But it was worth the wait and was sad when I came to the end, with a sigh and a smile. Definitely a must read. But then, it's Andrew Grey, everything he does is golden.

A business deal gone right
Sweet, sexy, fun.
It is an Andrew Grey book that speaks for itself! Always a good story!
I loved the accent Robert Nieman gave Robert. I did stay engaged in the story but at times I felt the reading was just a little choppy.
Yes. Roberts proposal was quite tearing jerking.I said AWE! out loud LOL I made my heart happy.
I thoroughly enjoyed the story. I love stories set in England and add in a rich American businessman you have the best of both worlds. The story does move fast but the storyline is sweet both character's intriguing and though the sex isn't overly hot it is perfect for the story.
If you are looking for a book to kill a few hours and lift your mood this is a great choice.
