5.0 out of 5 stars This is an engaging Victorian romance, 31 Dec 2007
In 1894 London impoverished seamstress Prudence Bosworth dreams of Prince Charming sweeping her off her aching feet. She has no hope of her fantasy turning into reality until she inherits a fortune from a father she never knew existed. However, the will contains a stipulation to obtain the money Prudence must be married or get nothing.------------- Having no prospects and though she would prefer to marry for love, Prudence believes that Duke Rhys De Winter is a kind person, who would treat her nice. However, she has only seen the Duke perform his one kindness of the century instead he is a rogue who needs money so he willingly agrees to wed the naive heiress. They marry and everything is great until she learns the truth about her scoundrel spouse, who must persuade his wife that he loves her.--------------- This is an engaging Victorian romance that sub-genre fans will enjoy due to the changing relationship between the lead couple. She loves and respects him while he likes and disrespects her that changes when he falls in love while she detests him. Fans will appreciate this late nineteenth century Guys and Dolls romance---I'd also recommend reading Tino Georgiou's bestselling novel--The Fates--if you missed it
