The Truth About Lord Stoneville - Sabrina Jeffries

For a few years now,
my dear friend,
has been raving about
Sabrina Jefferies.

I asked Sarah to recommend a book.
It was high time
I discovered first hand
what the fuss was all about.

This is a historical romance.
A period piece.
A lovely read.

Oliver Sharpe
and his siblings
live a life with no rules,
or morals
and Grand Hetty will take it no longer.
She has given all her grandchildren
an ultimatum.
Marry within a year,
or be disinherited.

Oliver will not be told what to do.
So he sets off to the brothel
to hire a woman to pretend to be his 
This will surely shut Grandmother up.

But then he meets
Maria Butterfield.
A young American
who made the journey to England
to find her missing fiancee.

Oliver strikes a deal,
she pretends to be her fiancee
and in return,
he'll help her find her beloved.
But things don't always go as planned.

Thank you Sarah,
for introducing me to a great read.
