Brant Asher is an American football star who has just inherited the title of Viscount Asherwood. In order to inherit the house as well as the money, he has to marry Daphne, his VERY distant cousin. The problem is that neither one ever wants to marry, especially not each other. Afterall, he's an American and rude and has no manners. She's very English and stiff laced and proper. Until they DO marry and fall in love.
Even though this is a contemporary, it reads like a historical with it's setting mostly in England and it's romance. I really loved this book, as well as everything that Catherine writes. Do try this, I think you'll like it!
Suddenly becoming Viscount Asherwood and the lord of an English manor was enough of a shock for pro quarterback Brent Asherwood. Finding out he could lose it all if he didn't marry the cousin the whole family referred to a an ugly duckling was too much. Brent was damned if some dusty old will was going to control his life. Then he actually met the swan that Daphne had become--and realized that what an eccentric relative had really left him was a legacy of love.
What would an American football star do if suddenly found himself an English lord? It wasn't something pro quarterback Brant Asher had ever bothered to thing about-until the day he learned of his inheritance. He was now Viscount Asherwood, heir to an English estate, and a whole lot of trouble. Brant had inherited the obligation to marry Daphne, charitably described to him as an ugly duckling. This wasn't an attractive prospect for a man who enjoyed the pleasures of bachelor life-until he met the lady in question. Her reputation was obviously undeserved, because this was no ugly duckling; this was a beautiful swan.
A very fun novel!Football nut love story!
Entertaining marriage of English culture and American football.
Great book with a happy ending :)
He's an American football professional whose father was English. He inherits a title and little else unless he marries a woman chosen by his now-deceased grand-uncle. What to do, what to do?
Pro football player inherits and English title and estate and lands himself in a whole pile of trouble in the form of English relatives:Daphn, the "double bagging" dog, suave Aunt Cloe and the vamp, Lucilla. What happens is something every good man deserves and must, naturally work hard for.
Very enjoyable read, Catherine Coulter is hard to beat.
I guess I am a real true blue catherine coulter fan because i enjoyed
this book but maybe not quite as much as most of her others. You have
to stick with it on some books, although I agree basically that the
book should catch your interest right away but if you stick with this one you will get into it. earl h, meldrim, ga.
