Married and then suddenly widowed, Chastity Somers intended to claim her bridegroom's inheritance as the long-lost St. Yves, Earl of Barrington, heir. She planned to use the estate, Sunnyledge, to run a children's home. She "rescued" her husband's four relatives (3 nephews and 1 niece) from a workhouse prison and dashed off to see the estate's solicitor, Mr. Sonnett. She must wait three months to claim the estate. If the other heir did not show up with proof of his identity by then, the estate would belong to Chastity!
Reed Gilbride believed himself to be the other long-lost heir. He believed the proof he needed was somewhere within Sunnyledge. With only a short time to locate proof he became the caretaker. The instant he found what he needed, the tempting lady and her brigand-brats would leave! But even though Reed went looking for his heritage, he never expected that he would find salvation!
***** As usual, Annette Blair has written an intense romance that will leave her readers begging for more! The villainess is one that is obviously insane and extremely wicked. I loved to hate the character, which proves the author's wonderful talent! The children and their antics kept me laughing while they easily melted Reed's icy heart.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Excellent! ****
For Richer Or Poorer... Married and widowed in short order, Chastity Somers vows to claim her bridegroom\'s inheritance as the long-lost St. Yves, Earl of Barrington, if only to have the means to care for his impoverished young cousins. After freeing the children from their workhouse prision, she heads for Sunnyledge. The estate will be hers to run as a children\'s home if no other heir appears within three months...and if she remains above reproach.
Love Annette Blair's writing!
This book was ok, mot my favorite, had some really funny parts though.
Excellent story just as you would expect from Annette Blair.
As good as her other books. I'm really not into historicals, but it was good.
I didn't really like it much. 2.5 stars.
