She wants to marry a Lord, as Lordly and titled as possible. He wants nothing more to do with her than saddle her horses.
Miss Lucy Standish has wanted to marry a future duke for as long as she could remember. Days in the cold, with little coal for their small cottage and little to eat, she would dream of the days she saved all her sisters with a marriage to a man of such elevated title that they would never be poor again, that her children and their children forever would be cared for.
Mr. Conor Sullivan has never overstepped the lines of propriety. He does everything he can to treat Miss Lucy with respect. But his heart is overcome with love for the middle Standish sister, and he assumes he will spend his dying breath still wishing she were his. But fortune changes for the Sullivan family. With new attention from the crown and past family secrets revealed, a path opens that just might mean happiness for Lucy and Conor. But will they be bold enough to seize the opportunity when it comes?
Lucy Standish is of the belief that she is expected to marry a Duke and secure the family line. While there is some proof in her family line of nobility, she and her sisters grew up in poverty. Lucy’s heart is clearly leading her in one direction, but the obligations she feels for her family is leading her the opposite way.
There were a lot of things mentioned at the beginning of the book that were quite a bit of recapping previous books in the series, so it took me longer to get into this book. I did enjoy the book once I got into it.
I have liked this series and the family of sisters. Each one is interesting and unique. Coming into the story, Lucy seemed like she was going to be the most predictable with her plans for life, but she threw that right out the window. This is a fun series that I look forward to reading more from.
