Publisher's Summary

A woman with beauty, charm, and grace. Isn’t that what every lord wants? 
The lady makes a proposal. 
It took nothing more than her father’s death for Prudence Roxbury and her sisters to fall on hard times. The only flicker of hope in their bleak future is that their beautiful sister, Sarah, will marry and save them all from a life of destitution. But when Prudence hears that their father’s distant relation and heir has finally taken up residence in their old family home, Hagley Manor, she concocts a plan to rescue them from their miserable fate. After all, what lord wouldn’t want a beautiful wife on his arm?
The gentleman offers a bargain. 
A hundred years have passed since a bitter feud tore the Roxbury family apart. But now Max, Lord Roxbury, has an opportunity to right the mistakes of the past. When he moves into Hagley Manor he has no idea the former residents live but a mile away. That is until he finds an intriguing young woman on his front steps, wrestling with a drunken lout and a potted plant. Indeed, Prudence Roxbury might be the answer to his problems. Captivated by her wit and beguiling smile, passion soon ignites. The stipulations of his father’s will means he must marry within three months. But what is a gentleman to do when he swore never to marry for anything less than love?

An engaging story

This was an engaging story concerning Prudence and Lord Max Roxbury. Prudence has been taking care of her sisters and grandfather since her father’s
death. Prudence is the sensible one, who is always looking out for her family. However, she is attracted to Max but is hoping he will marry her sister. But Max is attracted to Prudence. Max’s ex-mistress, Catrina turns up at the house party and tries to cause trouble. It was good to see Helena and Lucas Dempsey and the put downs by Helena to Catrina were priceless. The narrator used different voices to bring the story to life. I received a copy and have voluntarily and honestly reviewed it.
