A social pariah due to her scandalous activities, Lady Sarah Beauchamp yearns for redemption to obtain a husband. The assistance of Society darling Mr. Jonathon Annesley gives her hope of success. However, the more effort he puts into helping her, the more she realizes the only esteem she wishes to earn is that of the handsome Jonathon. However, her reputation would potentially ruin his political aspirations.
Offering a gentleman's promise to help his sister's friend regain the favor of the ton should be easy for son of a viscount, Jonathon Annesley. After all, he's well liked and considered a rising star in Parliament. Until he learns Sarah's ultimate goal is a husband. No man is good enough and could ever appreciate her for all she is. But she is not for him—his focus rests solely on gaining reforms for society's weakest members. Yet, a promise made cannot be broken…
Lady Sarah Beauchamp has spent the last two years shunned by society. She made a certain tea and accidentally made her sister ill. She has what society sees as terribly dangerous, a brain that she likes to use. Now she desperately wants what her sisters have, a happy marriage.
Jonathon Annesley is a politician who is trying to gain votes for a special project. He holds the respect of most of society and believes he can help his sister's friend restore her reputation.
An invitation for few days to a Viscount's country house for hunting seems like a nice gentle start.
This story gives us a taste of just how limited our female ancestors lives were. Thank you the suffragist movement. Our intelligent and brave heroine always puts the welfare of others above her own. Our hero is trying to do his best for everyone.
This is part of a series. While this story would be better if you read the previous books , you can still enjoy this one on its own.
I loved it.
After viewing her all-time favorite love story, “Anne of Green Gables”, at the impressionable age of ten, Frances Fowlkes has been obsessed with affable boy-next door heroes, red-heads, and romance stories with lots of “highfaluting mumbo jumbo” written within their pages. It only seems natural then that she married the boy who used to pull on her curls in her high school English class, had not one, but THREE red-headed boys, and penned multiple love stories with bits of flowery prose.
When not writing, Frances loves spending time with her family, fangirling, and planning her next vacation.
Frances Fowlkes, originally a northern mid-westerner, now lives in the southeast with her ardent hero of a husband, three playful and rambunctious boys, and one spoiled standard poodle.
A self-professed Anglophile and summa cum laude graduate of LeTourneau University, Frances Fowlkes combines her passion for happily-ever-afters with her interests in both American and English histories.
