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.
