Eager to get away from England with her sister, Gillian schemes to marry an American, the problem is, she’s already betrothed to a loathsome Brit and on top of that there’s a very mutual attraction between Gillian and Alex, who for his own reasons, agreed to help Gillian land her American husband.

There’s something in Gillian’s past and another something in Alex’s past affecting each of them in the present which I had mixed feelings about, on the one hand, I understand Gillian feeling protective and I understand Alex experiencing guilt, but at the same time when the facts were laid out, it seemed like unnecessary drama, unnecessary blame and there were some extenuating circumstances in both cases that maybe could have been explained and accepted through clear eyes years earlier.

I liked Alex and Gillian’s chemistry, though their courtship while entertaining so often involved being on horseback, being caught out in the rain, or Alex happening to be there whenever Gillian needed rescuing, that I just craved a bit more variety in the scenes.

The meddling family members and friends were easily my favorite aspect of this book, whenever Gillian’s Aunt, sister, or childhood friend entered a scene it brought a jolt of energy to the proceedings, the dialogue tended to take on a more bantering vibe, a fizzy bit of humor that had me thinking it might be interesting to see what this author might do with a full-on regency romantic comedy.
