When the new earl inherits, poor relation Miss Rebecca Bond must wed immediately or be out on her ear. The only man she’s ever loved is summoned to hear the will—but he already rejected her so soundly that they haven’t spoken in years. Yet who better than a rakish Viscount to teach her how to snare a gentleman who appreciates her charms?
Daniel Goodenham, Lord North-Barrows, regrets nothing more than the lost friendship with the one woman who treated him like a man, not a title. Fate has given him the perfect pretext to win her forgiveness—even if it means having to matchmake her to someone else. But now that she’s back in his life, he’ll do anything to convince her to choose him instead…
Since I really like the friends to lovers theme in my romances, this short story naturally caught my attention. I think it’s a challenging situation in historical romance, something I haven’t come across before. Usually the hero and the heroine meet while we read, and fall in love but in this story, the hero and the heroine have already met and even drifted apart by the time we start reading.
