Enjoy another witty, emotional book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Erica Ridley’s fan-favorite Dukes of War regency romance series!

Oliver York returns from war to find his father dead, his finances in arrears, and himself the new Earl of Carlisle. If he doesn't marry an heiress—and fast!—he and his tenants are going to be pitching tents down by the Thames. He definitely shouldn't be trading kisses with a penniless debutante... no matter how captivating she is!

Miss Grace Halton is in England just long enough to satisfy the terms of her dowry. But a marriage of convenience isn’t as easy as she’d hoped. Back in America, her ailing mother needs medicine only Grace’s dowry can afford. Which means the dashing earl she can't get out of her mind is the one man she can't let into her heart.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Whirlwind Ride! Two strangers, one man, one woman each with one goal in mind; to marry for money! Oliver York returned from his military service, a changed man. And, a war hero. His life changes even more. His estranged father died, leaving Oliver as the new Earl of Carlisle! A penniless new Earl. "Congratulations!" He needs money to save his tenants, his home and estate holdings and pay his servants. He can't let down the people counting on him. His only recourse is to marry a rich woman. Grace Halton is American. She's arrived in England in search of her maternal grandparents. She's in dire need of their financial support for her desperately ill, widowed mother. Her grandparents don't believe Grace's mother, Clara, is ill! They believe Grace was sent to fleece money, from them and return to America so she and her mother can live the good life. So, Grace has no choice, she must quickly marry a rich, manageable man! As we all know, things don't always turn out the way we planned! Events turn every which way but loose, as Ms. Ridley leads us on a whirlwind ride with Oliver, Grace and company! The main characters are warm, emotional, open and honest. There are ups, downs, and a curve or two along the way! It's a fun-filled ride. Enjoy it! The good ones always end too soon!! I received this book free for an honest review.
