If Mary Babington-Smith knows nothing else, it's that Lord Edwin Sutton kissed her. Regardless of who-kissed-whom, with the deed witnessed, they have no choice but to carry on with a temporary, fake, engagement. When Edwin sweetens the deal, offering Mary the money she needs to pursue her independence if she can play the lovesick fiancée for two weeks, Mary rises to the challenge. In two weeks, she'll have everything she wants, and this time she'll be the one to walk out of his life.

Despite Sutton's argumentative, self-assured nature, when Mary glimpses a sliver of the boy he used to be, she vows to peel away every layer of armor he uses to shield his emotions. Somewhere underneath that worldly exterior is the kind-hearted man she once loved, but in order to find him, she'll have to give him the power to hurt her...and he's already broken her trust once...


Miss Mary Babington - Smith is a fiercely independent young feminist in a time long before the word was fashionable.  She helps any woman or animal in need,  sometimes without regard for her own welfare.
Lord Edwin Sutton needs a wife,  or at least to look like he will soon be married.  He hopes to strike a deal with an old friend. 
His family and staff do all they can to make the fake relationship real. 
A funny and at times emotional story about a couple who seem to have nothing in common. Their shared history only complicates the deal they worked out. 
A very entertaining and enjoyable read. 


Harmony Williams has been living vicariously in Regency-era England since she discovered Jane Austen. Since time machines don’t yet exist, she’s had to make do with books—fictional and non-fictional. On the rare occasions she doesn’t have her nose stuck in a book, she likes to drink tea and spend time with her 90-lb lapdog. A feminist, she writes stories about strong women and the men who support them as equals.
