Captain Amberton's Inherited Bride by Jenni Fletcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I really enjoyed this book. I read it in about a day, which is pretty fast for me.
Lance Amberton is trying to do the right thing. He's lost his father and his brother and got injured all in the same week and he's having trouble adjusting.
Violet Harper has been controlled by her father all her life and even in his death, he's trying to marry her off like she's a possession. But if she refuses, she will be penniless.
Both Lance and Violet are attracted to each other, but manage to talk themselves out of thinking the other is attracted to them (the crazy young fools!). There's a maze and a castle and some crumbling walls. The characters are so real, I felt like I knew them.
Loved it. I'm looking forward to reading about Amberton's brother too.
Usual disclaimer, I know the author because we belong to the same professional organisation.
