Publisher's Summary

It was an unfair decision - to be forced to choose between her home and her heart…

When one of her sisters is attacked by Harry Devers, the lecherous son of Mannerling's present owner, Abigail Beverley puts her obsession with reclaiming the mansion on hold. It is then that Abigail meets the dashing and extremely eligible Lord Burfield, fresh back from the army and in full-time pursuit of a bride. She must be quick to grab his attention lest he be snapped up by Prudence Makepeace.

Meanwhile, unexpected circumstances force the insufferable Harry to recuperate from a riding accident in the Beverley home, where Abigail's twin sister, Rachel, nurses him back to health - and into betrothal. Stirred from its brief slumber, Abigail's fury returns, alive and kicking. So when Rachel begins to have doubts about marrying Harry, Abigail devises a daring plan to win back Mannerling once and for all.

Adorable love story!

Abigail is my favorite of the Mannerling Daughters so far. She’s headstrong and rambunctious. Her romance was lovely.

As Always Fabulous!

Newton and Core are a winning combination. I hope there is more on the family who is obsessed over their former home. The series is character study in human behavior .
