Publisher's Summary

Lord Percy Nibley needs a wife, preferably before his mother’s nagging on the subject drives him to distraction. But being more comfortable with his rock collection than flirting, he’s not having a lot of luck.
 

In desperation, the shy nobleman enlists the help of Baron Marchmain - Lord August Bright. August is nothing short of dazzling. Charming, witty and amusing, he’s the darling of the ton, and a notorious heart-breaker.
 

August selects a suitable young lady for Lord Nibley; Miss Patience Pearson, a cool, level-headed woman, close to being on the shelf and with the reputation of a blue-stocking, meanwhile setting his own sights on capturing the heart of her vivacious younger sister, Caroline.
 

But Patience is not easily charmed, guarding her sister with the tenacity of a lioness and August must be at his most devastatingly charming to get past her defences.
 

Having finally done so, however...August isn’t at all sure he’s chosen the right sister.

A delight to the senses.

I cannot sing the praises of Emma V Leech and Philip Battley too high, the story and narration keep me spellbound for hours. Thank you Emma for the beautifully crafted story and Philip for the life you give the players with your voice.
