William Barlow's life has been forever altered: his estranged father is dead, and William has inherited the title of Viscount Farleigh. Along with the title comes a neglected estate, an enormous amount of gambling debt, and one astounding acquisition that will turn William's world upside down . . .

It is her first London Season, and Lady Louisa Hargreaves could not be more pleased. She has attracted the attention of the Earl of Kerridge, and the two are on the cusp of an official betrothal. That is, until she learns of a generations-old family debt: her grandfather gambled her hand in marriage and lost, and now Louisa must pay the price. She will marry not the earl but a man she just met, who has taken her freedom in one fell swoop. Even as she struggles to understand the handsome and aloof man she is to wed, Louisa is irresistibly drawn to him—and he to her. But she soon realizes he is harboring secrets, and as her wedding day approaches, she must discover what her future husband is hiding before she makes the gravest mistake of her life.
My Review: 5 Stars

This is such a wonderful story! Louisa is in her debut season in London and has a pending offer of marriage, but her dreams come crashing down around her when a vowel is produced by a man and her father honors it. 

Louisa is charming and only wants to marry for love and to be accepted and loved for who she is and not for the title or wealth she holds. I enjoyed watching her develop and grow into the role she must play, as she comes to know and accept the man she'll marry, and become the woman she's meant to be. William is very likable and opposite of Louisa in so many aspects, but he's very loyal, honorable, and kind. Observing his character and growth was a pleasure.

I loved the gentle romance and messages of family and honor that swept through the pages. This story has a great flow, once the vowel makes an appearance, and is so sweet and delightful. The element of a secret is an added bonus and I enjoyed it all!
