Lady Sophie Harrington is not one to abide by society’s strictures. If there’s one thing she knows, it’s that she will not be paraded on the London marriage market in hopes of finding a suitable husband. When a handsome bachelor moves into the neighbouring country estate, she thinks her wedding prospects are solved - all she must do is make the man fall in love with her and convince her parents he would be a good match.
Successful barrister Lord Bryce Langdon escapes London to begin a new legal practice in the rugged county of Cornwall. However, being the object of desire for two beautiful sisters disrupts his life and distracts him from his true purpose for being there – infiltrating a local smuggler’s ring.
Can Sophie win Bryce’s love? What will she do when she discovers Bryce is not the honourable man he appears to be? Sometimes temptation cannot be resisted…

This is my first book by this author and also the first in The Ladies of Harrington House series. A delightful start to the series and I am glad I picked this up as I enjoyed the writing and can now easily follow the rest of the series. Sophie is free-spirit and is not one to follow the typical structure of the ton. She is not interested in a London Season and is perfectly content staying in Cornwall. Bryce is a barrister who has moved in next door and Sophie is quite smitten with him. As for Bryce, he immediately becomes enchanted by Sophie. The story brings an exciting adventure as Bryce is actually there to infiltrate a smuggling ring. This was a thoroughly charming story filled with intrigue and mystery and wonderfully delightful characters. It captured my attention right from the start. The characters were nicely developed and there was no question as to how strong their chemistry was. I enjoyed the build-up of the romance between Sophie and Bryce - they were so perfect together. A very well-written and captivating story! This is one series I fully intend to follow!
I received a complimentary copy from Netgalley and am voluntarily leaving my review.
