ISBN:  978-0-7783-0225-4

Publisher:  Mira

Main Characters:

Miss Lenore Lester (Sister of Jack & Harry Lester) and Jason Montgomery, Duke of Eversleigh

Brief Outline of Plot:

Faced with the fact that his younger brother's death would leave him with an unacceptable heir, Jason decided that he needed a wife and listed his Reasons:  She must be happy to remain in the country until he requested her presence in London for some reason; She must be capable of running a large house/estate; Not an antidote, but dis-interested in other men; She must be well-born with an acceptable family; She must be slightly more mature that the general run of the mill marriageable young miss; She must not be dim-witted; She must be happy to find her own amusement, leaving him to continue with his usual activities; She must be willing to produce an heir or two........... with such a list, is it possible that such a paragon of virtue exists?

Conclusion and rating:

Nice to read the book preceding the others in this series:  A Lady of Expectations; An Unwilling Conquest and A Comfortable Wife, and actually probably the best of the 3 so far.  A 4 star read.
