This was a terrific book! One of the best ones, in my opinion, by SL. I tend to get bored reading some of the steamier novels...I like to know I'm reading a book with an actual plot. I would most definitely recommend this one!

This is a historical romance where the wealth gentleman wants a bride who wants him for love not his money and the not so wealthy woman who needs to marry for money.

Although I prefer Stephanie Lauren's later works, this is still a good book and classic regency!

The story was simple. Reputed rake Jack Lester was ready to settle down. Not wanting to broadcast his good fortune and financial windfall, mainly in order to keep the ton's matrons at bay, he wanted to discover a woman who would love him for himself, while thinking him poor as a church mouse. Naturally, he finds his ideal mate, Sophie Winterton - perfect in every way. So perfect, in fact, that even though Sophie loves him, when she's told he needs money to refurbish his estate she does her best to dissuade and refuse his suit. Unselfishly thinking that he can find and marry the heiress `she determines' he needs to shore up his estates. The plot goes on the way of traditional regencies with a full complement of supporting and engaging secondary characters and romances. In this earlier effort, Laurens expertise in character development shines in giving you a totally loveable cast of lead characters.
