never thought a romance would be so comical. For someone who swore they'd never fall in love with a man, 28 year-old Amanda sure isn't doing very well with her vows of spinsterhood.
Neither is the one she is supposedly trying to avoid. Lord Sommersby has a "battle plan" to woo and wed her cousin Felicity Biddle, who has an over-active imagination to say the least. He finds that every time he tries to activate his 'plans', thoughts of Miss Fitzhugh keep intruding. Also, her direct manner knocks him off balance.
Could there be real desire for the young spinster or some other supernatural forces in the castle at work?? When Lord Ramsey shows up at Sommersby, Amanda finds herself in a 'pickle' so to speak. For once, she's at a loss for words.
(From the back cover): Amanda Fitzhugh was now far too levelheaded to be seduced by men's sweet promises or silken caresses. Handsome, heartless Lord Ramsey had once shattered her lofty notions of romance and brought her most firmly down to earth, where she was quite happy to remain. But when Amanda arrived at Sommersby Castle, unearthly longings began to possess her. She was there as chaperone to the young innocent whom Lord Sommersby intended to wed. But there was no one to protect her when her former suitor arrived to again work his worldly wiles. Nor when the arrogant, iron-willed earl turned his soldierly skills from winning a bride to conquering her companion. Clearly this castle cast a spell on the senses, as ghosts of passions past caught the living in a web of lobe...
This book was ok. I don't care for the supernatural element in these books, and this had one.
