A Private Collection
Daisy Wellfleet needs a husband if she means to keep control of her grandfather’s hotel. Lawrence Bailey, wounded in a mine explosion, needs somewhere to recuperate. For a marriage of convenience he sounds entirely suitable.
But the man who shows up, three days late, is not what she expected from his letters. He’s too healthy, too handsome, and generally just too much of everything. Now Daisy can only wish Lawrence Bailey would stop distracting her, before she falls in love— the last thing a fiercely independent woman needs.
And Lawrence Bailey has a secret. He’s just not himself. He’s not Lawrence Bailey at all, but Luke Blackwood. If only he could untangle everything, start at the beginning again. If only she’d let him get a word in edgeways, because falling in love is the last thing a sensible, solitary man needs.
From the very beginning of the story, Luke and Daisy have an electrifying connection. Clumsy, bumbling Luke falls immediately under the vibrant Daisy’s spell. With a small misunderstanding on Daisy’s part, Luke takes tremendous advantage of her, claiming her for his own.
Ms. Fresino’s words fly off the page to paint a picture that lives and breathes. Her characters come alive with spirit and vitality, learning each other even as we learn them. Vivid descriptions make the world in which Luke and Daisy live easily visible to this reviewer, and their passion for each other makes my heart beat faster. Awesome book, awesome series.
