Rumors swirl that Catherine Benson lost her virtue. Therefore, her marriage to Andrew Davener is, if nothing else, a marriage of convenience for Andrew. Catherine’s dowry ensures that Andrew can finally rebuild his family’s estate.

However, Catherine longs for love. She knew that her marriage to Andrew wouldn’t provide love. But as her regard for him grows, Catherine can’t help but feel hurt that Andrew doesn’t seem to return her love.

The art is beautiful while subdued. The story leaves the possibility for future titles with other characters.

I enjoyed the book and recommend you give it a read.
