"I wish I were dead!" was Clare Penryck's impassioned reaction upon hearing that Sir Benedict Choate was to be her guardian. She had know this elegant aristocrat for but one London season -- but that time had sufficed to show her how insufferably arrogant he could be. Benedict made it clear that he expected Clare to be a very proper young lady, to remain safe on her secluded country estate, to wait for a decent match -- in short to be all and do all that Clare found intolerably boring and detestable. Both Benedict and the law said she must obey him. But the exasperatingly headstrong Clare had no intention of accepting any such odious arrangement. First her outrageously independent mind, and then her scandalously impetuous heart, told her it was time to rebel. Sir Benedict Choate was clearly unprepared for the lesson in love he was about to be given -- by a maddeningly willful young girl who had so much to learn herself!...

    Clean Historical English romance set in London, Bath and a country abbey.Miss Clare Penryck is almost completely alone in the world. She was orphaned as a child and has lived a lonely life in the countryside with her old sick grandmother, but she is now being thrown into London high society to find a husband before she has to go into mourning for her grandmother.Clare is very young, only almost 16 when we meet her out in society. She finds a 'cousin' (although the direct relationship is never explained) Lord Choate who will become her Guardian and then more in this silly fluff story. I liked the mothers in this story, like Lady Thorne and the evil fiance, Margaret's mother. Lord Benedict Choate has a childhood engagement duty to marry the nasty Margaret, so he has never had the chance to fall in love so it happens abruptly without him noticing which was cute.536 pages (but it felt more like 300 pages at the most) and a kindle freebie3 stars
