Fiction. Romance. Historical Fiction. HTML:In this dazzling new novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander welcomes you to Millworth Manor, a delightful English country estate where love is always perfectly at home. . .
For Winfield Elliott, Viscount Stillwell, finding a prospective bride always seemed easy. Perhaps too easy. With three broken engagements to his name, Win is the subject of endless gossip. Yet his current mission is quite noble: to hire a company to repair his family's fire-damaged country house. Nothing disreputable in that??until the firm's representative turns out to be a very desirable widow.
Lady Miranda Garrett expected a man of Win's reputation to be flirtatious, even charming. But the awkward truth is that she finds him thoroughly irresistible. While Miranda resides at Millworth to oversee the work, Win occupies her days, her dreams. . .and soon, her bed. For the first time, the wicked Win has fallen in love. And what began as a scandalous proposition may yet become a very different proposal. . .

Loved the woman living her own life and leading an architecture firm. It didn't grab me though, so I'll probably give the author another shot to see if that was a fluke. ( )

Read but don't remember well. Liked the independent character of Lady Miranda Garret. Enjoyed the unusual setting of rebuilding a house as a focal point. ( )

I thought this book was delightful, and I really enjoyed the repartee between the Winfield and Miranda, especially because of the progressive take on Miranda's "occupation". I did, however, think the whole "how do I know what love is?" trope was a tad overused. Also, as a particular issue of mine, there were several typographical errors in my ebook copy, most notably the epilogue and its title card. ( )

I knew this story was going to be good because I had so much fun reading its prequel `intro' novella `Lord Stillwell's Excellent Engagements'. If you plan to read this book, I highly recommend you read the novella first because in it you'll get to know him and his life a bit better.

As for this story, it was again such a breath of fresh air to read a mature and slow developing friendship, courtship and love. The heroine is no simpering miss, but a grown woman, a widow that actually has is running a business, although naturally in the Victorian England, she's still hiding behind her husband's name and an alias male `employee' name. That part of the plot was almost as much fun to follow as the relationship between the two.

When it comes to painting a Victorian Era picture, Ms. Alexander excels in making sure I `see' the setting, the costumes, the language and I'm never disappointed as I `enter' the world she creates for my pleasure.

If you're like me, a long time fan of Victoria Alexander, then you'll get this one for sure. For all of you bookworms that have never had the pleasure, may as well start with this one. This is a slow, simmering and chemistry filled sensual romance filled with great verbal, witty sparring between the main characters and I do recommend you read it.
