Alice Stanbridge has been in love with her neighbor, Lord Fenton, since she was a young girl. When Lord Fenton suddenly asks Alice to marry him, she is sure all of her dreams are about to come true. However, Alice soon discovers that Lord Fenton’s reasons for marriage are more practical and disinterested than romantic. As the day of their marriage approaches, will Alice be able to marry a man who doesn’t love her?
This book was a fun read. Josi Kilpack has managed to create strong, believable characters with honest emotional arcs. The plot can be a little slow at times, but watching the main characters grow from childhood to awkward engagement to loving marriage was entertaining and worthwhile. This novel will satisfy any lover of period romance, but could also be a great introduction to the genre for new readers. Good clean fun!
