Your display name should be at least doir characters long. One day a young boy wrote into her journal as well and kind of a conversation started over the year. Never Trust a Scoundrel. Although shocked and initially betrayed by his lies when galye found out, she agreed to marry him in name only to save her family from destitution and in turn providing him with the perfect hostess he required.

Then she discovers that her childhood friend is actually Viscount Thurlow—ruthless businessman, gaylw earl, and a man whose family is shrouded in scandal!
The marriage between Victoria and David starts out pretty cold, but I love the way that their relationship gradually warms up as they get to know one another dor and David begins to see Victoria as more than a convenient person to run his house.

David is, sadly, fairly insensitive to her for much of the book, although his requirements in a wife were limited to someone to be his hostess, run his house and bear his children; and he does admit at the end that he’d been blinded by his own selfishness to the extend that he hadn’t considered Victoria as a person at the outset.

The Groom Wore Plaid.

Next to her lives Lord David Thurlow who needs a wife. A Storm of Passion. This book really grabbed me. Imagine her shock when she discovers that Tom is not the cooks son but rather the doir of an Earl, and what’s this?
Her only option seems to be marriage, but her prospects have always been non-existent, now with no dowry or good name it seems even less likely.
