Publisher's Summary

American heiress August Crenshaw has aspirations. But unlike her peers, it isn't some stuffy British lord she wants wrapped around her finger - it's Crenshaw Iron Works, the family business. When it's clear that August's outrageously progressive ways render her unsuitable for a respectable match, her parents offer up her younger sister to the highest entitled bidder instead. This simply will not do. August refuses to leave her sister to the mercy of a loveless marriage.

Evan Sterling, the duke of Rothschild, has no intention of walking away from the marriage. He's recently inherited the title only to find his coffers empty, and with countless lives depending on him, he can't walk away from the fortune a Crenshaw heiress would bring him. But after meeting her fiery sister, he realizes Violet isn't the heiress he wants. He wants August, and he always gets what he wants.

But August won't go peacefully to her fate. She decides to show Rothschild that she's no typical London wallflower. Little does she realize that every stunt she pulls to make him call off the wedding only makes him like her even more.

Contains mature themes.

Three in half stars

This book is slow to start, almost half way through before it gets interesting. There is very little sex in the book, so if you want a clean historical romance this is it. I wish the end had an epilogue. I like to see how thing are in the future.

Hallmark movie

This book was super cheesy. Could for sure be a hallmark movie in the making. My book club picked it because of their love of Bridgerton.

Compelled to write a review

I haven't reviewed a book in awhile but I felt this book deserved one. First of all, the performance was outstanding. Justine Eyre effortlessly switched between American and British accents. They were both flawless. I was very impressed. Secondly, I loved the story and characters. The hero was humble, the heroine was fierce. Recently I have listened to or read a lot of historical romance. They tend to all run togther in my mind after a while. Few are original or clever enough to stand out, this one has done it. I can't wait for book two! The author set it up nicely without distracting from the current book.

Average listen

This was a run of the mill romance for me. I didn't find either character compelling. Also, the narrator's voice was a little too perky for me. She used a lot of inflection but I just couldn't get over the dissonance. This is prob just a personal preference.

I really enjoyed this!!

Great story and the narrater did a fabulous job! I do think this narrater's men's voices sound a little old but otherwise, the narration brings the book to life!

FUN READ

You know the conclusion by the title. But the story raises many issues related to women's rights.

Needs an Epilogue

Fireworks happen when an American heiress who doesn’t want to marry is forced Into an arranged marriage with a penniless English Duke. A nice plot with good characters make this an enjoyable read. However it has an abrupt ending which desperately needs an epilogue.

GREAT NARRATION

AUDIBLE EDITION!!
American Heiress August Crenshaw is determined she will not marry the improvised Duke of Rothschild, Evan Sterling.

I didn't like August. She was a bit to mean to Evan, He treated her with kindness and respect, and she was always so mean to him even though she loved to kiss him. The couple doesn't come together until the end of the story. Evan finds out that he is not improvised and that he doesn't need August family's money. But he loves her. The end was pretty good!

Audible Narration was very good!
