Her Shocking Past... Raised as the youngest daughter of the Duke of Kendal, Elizabeth learns a devastating truth on his deathbed: he wasn't her father at all. And because the Duke had no sons, his title and fortune must go to his only male heir: a distant cousin who left England for America long ago. Anticipating the man's imminent occupation of her home, Elizabeth anxiously searches for her mother's diary, and the secret of her paternity.
Her Unexpected Future... Arriving in London with his seven siblings, William Atherton intends to sell everything and return to his beloved Virginia farm, and his fiance, as quickly as possible. But as Elizabeth shows William an England he never knew, and graciously introduces his siblings to London society, it becomes clear the two are meant for each other.
Soon, Elizabeth finds herself determined to seduce the man who can save not only her family name but her heart...

An entertaining read
I'm reading this series out of order, starting with the fourth book and this is the third. It hasn't really made a difference in the enjoyment. I really like the story behind this one. There is an element of mystery wondering what Richard and Caroline will do to claim the title and the back story of Elizabeth's parentage. The characters are well developed and likable. There's enough heat to keep it interesting. And, the most important for me when reading romances, the heroine has a mind of her own and is not subsumed by the hero. This was an enjoyable, quick read.
