Publisher's Summary

Lady Amelia has only known the comfort of life in mid-18th-century English aristocracy. But when her father dies, she finds herself alone, grief stricken and not of age. Her appointed guardian, an American uncle, has ordered her to relocate to America where she must remain until she comes of age.
With the help of Grace and Sarah, Amelia gets her uncle to agree to give her four weeks to settle her affairs and unbeknownst to him...find an English lord to marry. Despite her mourning period she endeavors to trap one of London's eligible bachelors in matrimony so she can remain in her beloved England.
The Duke of Goldstone is devilishly handsome, but a Scottish duke is entirely unacceptable as a possible husband. After all, Scotland is not her beloved England. He has a nasty habit of showing up at all the wrong moments and thwarting her carefully laid plans to ensnare a suitable husband. Sparks fly as the pair find themselves at odds with each other and drawn to each other at the same time. Can they find a way to stop arguing long enough to explore their growing passion?

Oh dear

Frankly, I'm surprised by all the 5 star reviews. I had to force myself to finish it. (A book has to be really really bad for me to give up on it completely.) The writing was not very polished. The dialogue was tremendously stilted. The story itself was just odd. I didn't care for this at all.

The narrator did a decent job given the material she had to work with.

I won this is a contest from the author.

Cute Story. Decent Narration

This was a cute story, I enjoyed it. I liked all the characters. The heroine was strong, witty and smart. The hero was handsome and smart, the two had some good chemistry together.

The story line and plot were good. Nothing mysterious or any villains. Just a cute regency romance story. It wasn't full of angst, which I liked. She needed a husband to stay in England and was on a mission. There was lots of dialogue throughout the book.

As for the narration, it was good. Stevie Zimmerman is getting better and better. The men sound like men and she does give everyone their own voice. She has a nice reading voice too.
