Wasn't as impressed with this one of Brockway's as I was with Bridal Favors. A dying/dead old coot gives the heroine the challenge that if she can keep his house in order and have it prosper for some odd amount of months then she can keep it, if at the end of the time period it's in the red then she looses the house and has to publicly announce that women are not capable of managing such things and the property will go to his grandson. I really enjoyed the letter correspondence section of this book and would've enjoyed the plot more if it that had lasted longer. I also would've liked if the hero had stayed the awkward and lanky guy that he was built up to be during the first half-ish of the book instead of turning into a buff stud. I did, however, enjoy that he was a little shy. ( )

Interesting reading this back to back with Black Silk, both with protagonists brought together by an unusual will. ( )

If you like historicals with a lot of humor and a good plotline with some tenderness and passion, this will be right up your alley.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 044022375X, Mass Market Paperback)

The terms of an irascible uncle's will robs Avery Thorne of the home he loves, and throws him into contact with the new owner, an argumentative suffragette named Lily Bede, whose letters follow Avery on his adventures around the globe. Now Avery is returning home, hoping that Lily will have failed to make the manor house profitable, thereby ensuring that it reverts to him. When they finally meet, she finds him just as arrogant and domineering as in his letters. He finds her just as tart-tongued and provoking. They're each beset by an attraction that leaves them sleepless, restless, and burning with desire. Avery, who considers himself a gentleman above all else, finds the self-control required to resist Lily increasingly hard to come by, while Lily chaffs under a self-imposed restriction against marriage, which she deems "legalized slavery." In showing how these two come to terms with their hopes for the future--and their feelings for each other--Connie Brockway amply displays her well-known wit, charm, and humor. --Ellen Edwards
