Enjoyed this book. The characters were likable and well writtened. The story was different in a good way. My only complaint is that some of the conversations were lengthy. Overall a good read....
ter Anna, from a man who would abuse her.Born with a lame leg, Lady Miriam Bexley has no desire to marry. In fact, she doesn't much care for people at all. All of her life she has been pointed at and whispered about due to her infirmity, particularly by the gentlemen of London. Why on Earth would she wish to bind herself to such a horrible fate for the rest of her natural life? No, she is better off with her stars and her telescopes for they, at least, do not ridicule her and they are always in perfect order.The moment Miri accidentally overhears someone make Will a scandalously indecent proposition, she suddenly sees an opportunity she might be able to use to her advantage. If she has enough coin, perhaps she can pay Will to court her so that she might fool her family into believing that she finally has a suitor. It seems like the best decision she has ever made. Or quite possibly the worst.Can Will and Miri convince even those closest to them that they are really a courting couple? Or is it actually Will and Miri who are fooling themselves?This 97,700-word novel is written in the modern, Regency romance style for a slightly hotter and sexier read. It may not be appropriate for younger audiences.
