Reviewed by Miriam Scott
Life is a pathway full of negotiations and pitfalls as well as soaring moments of joy. Set in Regency England this book provides a delightful insight into the skills needed to find the right marriage partner in English High Society and the manners and mores of this period.
Sophie Winterton has only ‘expectations’ to bring to a marriage. Jack Lester needs a wife with money. Or so it appears at the beginning of the story. However, Sophie has a backbone and depth of character and Jack is much richer than anyone knows. What Jack really needs is Sophie. He just needs to convince her that that is also what he wants.
