This was an amazingly enjoyable read! I'm not a fan of this stuff, but the horse on the cover convinced me to read it. Good rainy-day reading for when the heavier, more realistic stuff just won't sit well in your stomach.

She vowed never to be married...Sister Eloise was perhaps the most well intentioned novice at the Convent of the Brides of Virtue-and the one always in the most trouble. Headstrong and earnest, she was determined to surprise her frustrated abess and succeed in her latest role as the convent's new husband judge.

He'd do anything to be a husband...Peril, earl of Whitmore, needed a virtuous wife in the worst possible way. And he could think of no way worse than taking a stubborn, opinionated young novice back to his blighted estate and proving he was husband material.

Fast paced, good characters, interesting plot.

I normal dislike romance novels, but fell madly in love with this one.

What drew me to it was the small historical details that were not only fitting but very well placed, my personal favorite being the use of trencher bread on wooden plates.

The Story sets up a Novice Nun who dosen't fit in the nunnery do to her need to "improve" things. She is sent out to judge a man's worth as a husband and ends up falling in love with him. This is about the first half of the book, I will leave the other half to your delightful discovery. The Man in queastion is a low-level nobility who (of course) has a good heart under neight his gruff exterior and needs someone to get his home right. Most of the sotry takes place on his lands that have fallen under a curse.

There are sterotypical notes in this book, but enough detail and good writing that you don't midn them. if you like Romances, Historical fiction or just some really fun fluffy reading I high recomend this book to you!

She vowed never to be married. Sister Eloise was perhaps the most intentioned novice at the Convents of the Bride of Virtue - and the one always in the most trouble. Headstrong and earnest, she was determined to surprise her frustrated abbess and succeed in her latest role as the convent's new husband judge. But to do so this modest beauty, who had forsaken all carnal pleasure, must judge a warrior whose mere presence exuded a dangerous, unpredictable, and totally male sensuality.

Peril, earl of Whitmore, needed a virtous wife in the worst possible way. And he could think of no way worse than taking a stubborn, opinionated young novice back to his blighted estate and proving he was husband material. But in the days and nights to come he finds that the one test he can't pass is resisting this maddeningly irresistible woman. And as the dark secret of the Whitmore estate is revealed and their passion ignited by a single forbidden touch, they find that the perfect match is often made in a far more sensuous place than heaven.
