Descripción

The cold, precise Duke of Montford demands things his way: neatly ordered, in place, and adhering closely to the rules. So he is furious when he learns that the tenant of his ducal estate has been dead for a year, and a stranger has been running the Honeywell business-which, by contract, is now Montford's. When he arrives in Yorkshire to investigate, he discovers that the estate is being run by an unruly, tomboyish woman-and a bluestocking at that!

Fiery redhead Astrid Honeywell is independent and educated. She's been handling the Honeywell family business for years. And she's not about to relinquish it to anyone-not even Montford-because of some archaic contract.

Montford and Astrid have an instant hatred for one another…and an undeniable, unspeakable attraction. They must resist this improper desire-after all, Montford has a fiancée in London. But when Astrid's life is placed in terrible danger, Montford finds he may be willing to risk everything to save her.

  • (5/5)
    This story was indeed a romp- with recalcitrant children, a wig-wearing grand-dame of an aunt, a crooked castle, and a runaway pig, not to mention a hero and heroine who have nothing at all in common except their desire to steer clear of one another. As Astrid learns her judgement isn't infallible and Montford learns his perfect life isn't a life at all, they battle well-meaning friends and an evil-minded suitor before finally finding their way together. This book introduced a colorful cast of characters and had some genuine laugh-out-loud moments. I for one enjoyed it enough to seek out others in the series.

    Fastidious meets mayhem!Potentially a hoot, this falls a tad short of the promise the plot contains.I like the Duke of Montford despite his many idiosyncrasies. 'He has always been fastidious'. ..and as the story develops we find out more about that! Astrid Honeywell, fiery independent being that she is, is married to the family myth (an archaic contract surrounding the family holdings ownership) and the family business, Honeywell Ale. Astrid is just a little too over the top, but her heart is true.The Duke (known as the Monk behind his back) is an obsessive compulsive who has to have order in all things at any cost. And yes, when the Monk meets the Misfit (Astrid) all hell breaks loose!When Montford's man of business tells him that the current male occupier of Rylestone Hall has been dead for over a year, little did Montford know that with 'that simple statement disorder nay even chaos' would enter his life!I do like Montford's irrepressible friends from his Harrow schooldays, Marlowe and Sherbrooke. Each as eccentric in their own way as Montford. (Ah, the English school system, apparently producing unerringly friendships that never fail to puzzle!)Some interesting incidences and some not so believable.Despite my few misgivings, I look forward to the rest of the series.A NetGalley ARC
