This book takes place in London, 1820 and Adam Landry is the Earl of Beaufort. He meets Cortland "Corrie" Heath at a bookstore and is instantly attracted to her. Corrie herself is not interested in Adam as they have quite differing political views.
When Corrie's father takes on a new wife, Lilias, her life and her sister's takes an immediate turn for the worse. Desperate for an escape, she turns to Adam for help. Adam makes Corrie is wife and Corrie must decide if she is falling for Adam and whether she can put aside their political differences in turn for a succesful marriage.
Unfortunately Corrie's still in danger from her father and his wife who would like to get their hands on her fortune.
I really enjoyed this book and there were definitely a few surprises. I liked how genuine Adam was in helping Corrie and how much he honestly cared for her.
Corrie was a lot of fun and it was great to read about how her political views were so important to her as a woman. She knew what she believed in and stood by it.
A great book and I look forward to more by this author!
