From back of book:
Never Say Never...
Primrose by name, wallflower by nature - the shy younger Dunsworthy sister would rather study ancient Egypt than endure the Ton's endless scrutiny. In Rupert Jordan, Lord Fortenbury, Rosie has found a companion with a passion for history and disdain for the marriage mart. The handsome aristocrat's easy smile mght be irresistible to some, but friendship is all Rosie desires... isn't it?
Asking Rosie to visit his estate for his brother's wedding seems such a sensible plan. Rupert can show her his heiroglyphic tablets, and Rosie's presence will deter the attentions of a tiresome husband-hunter. yet every moment spent in the company of lovely Rosie, with her red curls and bright green eyes, leads Rupert to suspect that marriage might be underrated. In fact, the prospect suddenly seems quite wonderful...
Primrose Dunsworthy was never going to get married. It was easy to see how her outgoing and outspoken sister, Bianca, found the perfect man to wed, but because she prefers to keep her own company, Primrose is certain she will remain a spinster. In fact, the only man Primrose truly feels comfortable with is Rupert Jordan, Lord Fortenbury, but even if Primrose enjoys their lively discussions about ancient Egypt's mysterious hieroglyphs, Primrose knows that there is no way she could ever hope to pry Rupert out of Miss Ophelia King's -matrimonial-minded clutches. All it takes, though, is an invitation to attend a party being held in honor of Rupert's brother's upcoming nuptials for Primrose to finally realize that some things in life--like love--are worth speaking up for. A quiet, shy country miss learns how to let her wishes be known in Ferguson's latest gracefully written, quietly nuanced Regency, the second in her Dunsworthy brides trilogy.
