I've read several books by Ms. Bush and I've never been disappointed. She writes a good romance story with enough other things going on to keep your interest.
In this book, the poor behest Duke can't stand to be seen by the ton with the embarrassment he's carrying, so he goes to visit his best friend, Anthony. Unfortunately, he forgot they had an American visitor. His first impression of her is that she's an Amazon; she's the largest woman he's ever seen, even if she's in great shape.
Blake finds himself fascinated with her even as he knows they can have no future and she's too forward and opinionated to fit into his life. She thinks he's attractive, if stuck in a rut and not too smart about people and life.
The banter between them is fun. Watching Blake be horrified by her activities initially is great fun. He finds himself caring about her when he doesn't want to. Then she goes home...
It might all have ended here, but William went home with her. He stowed away on the ship. Blake decides to go after his son and takes his butler with him. As he gets to America and all his goods get stolen, he begins to learn a few things about life. When he gets lost on the way to Gertrude he learns much more. He even gets captured by Indians! But there's much more before the end. And all of it is a good read. Two stubborn and proud people take a bit to settle things down.
I really enjoyed this read. Why not settle in your chair and give it a read yourself? You'll be pleased with the big scene at the end when the duke arrives at home in England; it made me smile!
