When Douglas Eston approached the Duke of Herridge looking for an investor for his latest invention. He was hoping for money, but got a bride instead. What started off as her fatherís last cruel act toward her turns out to be the best thing that ever happened to Sarah. Douglas shows Sarah passion, love, and the extent of her fatherís greed. Will she see the later before he destroys the man sheís come to love?

Itís a shame that Sarahís father doesnít see her for the intelligent, capable woman she is. She single handedly runs the family estate and would have loved him unconditionally had he only showed her one ounce of affection in return. Sarah is endearingly guileless and innocent as well as stubborn and cautious. Douglas had to be clever in the seduction of his wife. His approach is a heady mix of giving and taking. While it is an arduous undertaking at times, it is extremely rewarding for both of them. Douglas is patient and kind. Heís unobtrusively authoritative.  Sarah is a reluctant bride whose heart becomes engaged when the stranger she married turns out to be the man of her dreams.  Sold to a Lairdís history, characters, and even its villain are compelling. It is a charmingly sensuous story.
