Rating: 5 Enchantments
Lady Caroline is tired of the lack of prospects at a good marriage or even one born of love. Her mother’s past seems to haunt this perfect lady, and no matter how good she is, Caroline cannot bring the focus on her. The final straw though is when her mother tries to buy her a husband and Caroline decides that she is going to stop fighting and follow in her mother’s footsteps.
Lord Ashdon cannot believe he has been bought, and worse, bought by a former courtesan. But what really and truly shocks is not the fact he was bought for marriage but that the daughter has turned him down. Now Ashdon’s pride demands that he show the stubborn young lady that he is worth her attention while destroying her as his father demands.
Who knew pearls could be in such demand? But when the cost of a lovely young woman and her most precious gift is a string of them, well what can you expect? This story has it all, and is so vividly told you want to smack a few heads and then laugh at the absurdity of it all. Claudia Dain has brought the past to life in a very real and breathtaking tale.
