Charlotte Beck would do anything to try and impress her father; she really wanted to go to college to prepare for taking over his business, but her father had other plans for her. Charlotte was just a spoiled rich man’s brat and always got what she wanted, whatever it took, and the very last thing on her list was to get married.
Viscount Alexander Hambly’s family found themselves in a financial strain after his dad passed away, thanks to Alex’s brother Martin, who his dad kept bailing out of trouble. After his father’s death, Alex’s mother placed him in charge of the Hambly estate, begging him not to leave her penniless. As he scanned all options of keeping money in the family, the only reliable option was to accept Daniel Beck’s deal: marry his daughter Charlotte and have plenty of money, and Charlotte can go to college as she chooses. But just how is Miss Beck going to feel about this arrangement?
This is a very light-reading story, enjoyable for the most part, but sometimes a bit boring. The book title tells you what is going to happen, that Charlotte will get married, but will she stay married to the viscount? Charlotte’s character is one I liked, yet disliked. I love her spunky and determined ways, but sometimes her antics were just too much. I felt she went overboard making the story boring, and sometimes difficult to follow.
I really liked Alex from the beginning. He was loyal, always trying to do what was best to help his family, and I loved the way he treated Charlotte, even though she was very rude to him.
Anyone wanting a good lighthearted read, interesting romance and witty characters grab a copy of this book and read it. You will enjoy.
