This is a quick read and a delightful story. Abigail is endearing in her talkativeness and kind heart. The Earl is the epitome of a perfect husband--kind, patient, amused and willing to admit when he is wrong, but still slightly confused on the ways of women. Their story is satisfying and sweet.

Miles Ripley, Earl of Severn, is being hounded by him mother and sisters to marry a suitable lady they have already picked out for him. But, Miles doesn't want to spend the next fifty years fetching for the charming beauty. He makes a wish for a dull, quiet, plain woman who can live in the country and provide his heir, without interfering with his bachelor lifestyle. The lady of his dreams arrives the next day, and he proposes, believing she is exactly what he wanted. Abigail Gardiner wonders if the Earl is sane, but is so desperate to provide for herself and her half-sisters that she accepts. This was a very enjoyable book.

Good read. Loved the characters in this book. Abby is a nonstop talker. Miles is seemingly exasperated but wonderfully patient with the chatter. You can't help but love her and root for the best for them.
