THEIR MATCH WAS IMPOSSIBLE...
Just shy of six feet tall, Clarissa Carter would tower above most suitors - if she had any. Yet marriage is the last thing on her mind, since Marcus Ridley - viscount of Fairfax and the only man she'll ever love - is well beyond her station. Despite her height, Clarissa is well on her way to becoming a beauty, but she's perfectly aware that as a steward's daughter, she's hardly a suitable match for Marcus...

...BUT THEIR LOVE WAS INEVITABLE
Marcus is far too handsome - and eligible - for his own good. Wherever he goes ladies pursue him, declaring their love and making proposals - causing him to hold a rather scathing view of women and marriage. When Clarissa rescues him from the designs of an aristocratic hopeful, Marcus is duly grateful. But having kissed Clarissa, he feels something else for her as well - love. The viscount cannot get her out of his mind...and now the once love-shy lord will do anything to make the steward's daughter his wife.

HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!!!!
Sounded so good from the synopsis...however....
Bulk of story involves the hero and heroine's long friendship since childhood, no romance at all or any sign of the hero being interested in the heroine...then once this drags on for TOOOOOOOOOOO long (90% of the book!) the author ties up the "romance" in about 10-15 pages. TOOOO abrupt and unrealistic. I did enjoy how the heroine's character developed, but it was too little too late...
I love historical romance....First time I've read this author, won't read another of her books.

A very unsuitable six feet tall, a regency miss rescues a marriage shy viscount from the designs of an aristocratic hopeful.
