When Clayton needs a wife in less than a month, Brianna, a scholarly young lady who has had a crush on him forever, would seem to be the perfect choice. However, Brianna has greater matters on her mind, such as saving the Prince. Rejection only makes Clayton more determined and desperate. How can a simple young girl withstand such passion? She can't.
This is, I admit, a lightweight read, but Brianna is a more complex character than the average Regency heroine. Take a mental break and indulge in something sweet and simple like this.
Facing financial ruin, Lord Clayton Clearbrook inherits his uncle's fortune with the stipulation that he must marry within three weeks-an opportunity he dare not refuse. Knowing time is of the essence, he sets his sights on Miss Briana Garland, a bluestocking who has adored him since childhood. But to Clayton's dismay, the lady shuns his advances.
