My mom loaned me this book (I LOVE the new Kindle loan feature!) and I got right to it. (I only had 14 days, after all.)
The Earl of Strickland, Miles Prescott, knows it's time to find a new wife. His daughters need a mother and his home needs a mistress. So despite reservations, he allows his sister to bring the widowed Lady Abingdon as an excellent prospect. And she's attractive. But is she the right mother for his two young girls?
The plot, writing, characters are all even better than the first Candice Hern book I read (A Proper Companion, review here). Although in my eyes no one can measure up to the master, Georgette Heyer, Ms. Hern really takes a crack at her. Read it. You'll love it. And the best part is, it's only $2.99 for Kindle at Amazon.
