Lord Harry's Angel is a romance of a destitute Earl, and his undesirable marriage to a Cit (City Girl) in order to obtain her money. Lord Harry resolves to deal with his marriage in a perfectly business manner. Angela, drawn in by Harry's ward, feels her help is needed. But neither party is prepared for falling in love.

Personally, I felt this book to be a little too back and forth for my liking. Sure, Harry sounds like a handsome guy, but his utter snobbery and distaste for Angela simply because she was a Cit was rather grating. I would have preferred more stolen moments/kisses and loving encounters. I also found it hard to believe that Harry wasn't interested in consummating his marriage right away. Yes, he was a wealthy Earl, but I imagine he would be like any other man and thus interested in being with his wife, who, despite being a Cit, was very well-bred.

An enjoyable story, but could have done with more tension and romance.
