ISBN 0802709125 - A romance novel without the sex! That alone ranked it above the standard romance novels. No heaving and pulsating here, and the story is not hurt by the lack. Still, it wasn't enough to overcome the odd fact that the supposed reason for all the angst of our heroine - Kielder's young baronet, Will - is largely forgotten throughout the book.
Kate Spencer is struggling to hold together the home her family's owned since King Edward III gave it to them. Her older brother, Harry, has managed to kill himself racing AND lose the ancestral home to a Mr. Drew, all to the disgust (if not surprise) of Kate. At all costs, Kiedler must be restored to the family, for Will's sake. Will doesn't seem to care, and Kate doesn't care that he doesn't care. The ending will not come as a surprise to romance fans, but getting there is all the fun. If only young Will did more than play chess now and then!
