Never say never when it comes to love.
Greer Jones has made a real name for herself at the elegant matchmaking agency Two Love Lane. For a lot of reasons—including a past engagement she broke off—practical tech expert Greer is more interested in the business of love than the experience of it, but she can’t help but covet a gorgeous wedding gown that’s the prize in an upcoming cocktail-party contest. In a moment of brazen inspiration, Greer asks a handsome Brit she’s only just met to accompany her to the party. He agrees—and Greer believes her date is a starving artist. Little does she know the truth. . .
Ford Smith, as he calls himself, is actually Stanford Elliott Wentworth Smythe, the Eighth Baron of Wickshire. Fresh off a breakup with a money-grubbing siren who deceived him all the way to the altar, Ford has no desire to fall in love—especially with Greer who, like the desired wedding gown, is beautiful but only skin-deep.
But soon Ford realizes that there’s more to Greer than meets the eye. Her professionalism is matched only by her passion for life and love. . .and, best of all, she has no idea that he’s to the manor born.
Could it be that true love is priceless after all?
This is the second book I have read by this author in this series and this genre. I have previously enjoyed reading her historical romance titles.
Even though I read mostly historical romance books, after I read Christmas At Two Love Lane and was offered this one to read as well I couldn’t resist.
I really loved this book. I couldn’t put it down. I loved the well constructed storyline and the characters, some of which we met in the first book.
Greer is a romantic at heart and has made books and plans for her dream wedding for years. She is a partner at Two Love Lane, a Charleston, SC based agency known for their matchmaking capabilities.
Ford is a member of the English aristocracy and a talented artist. He is fresh off a break up with a fortune hunter who he was certain he was in love with. After being deceived by his ex he has no desire to fall in love again.
He is entranced by Greer at first sight and follows her to an auction where she spies a wedding gown she just has to have.
She tries to enlist Ford as a partner so she won’t be out bid.
When the dress ends up as the prize in a contest set up by the auction winner, Greer enters and again enlists Ford’s assistance.
Ford asks only one thing, that Greer poses for a portrait.
How will this tale end?
I couldn’t put down this book. This is a sexy and delightful romance with unexpected twists and turns.
I gave this story 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 4 of 5 flames
There is not an abundance of physical intimacy in this tale, but just enough to wet the reader’s appetite.
I received an invitation from the publisher to read this book. I received a complimentary digital ARC from them via NetGalley to read and review.
This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

About The Author:
I’m a USA Today bestselling author of fun romantic fiction for women from St. Martin’s Press. I live in the Lowcountry of South Carolina with my family.
~I’m a $34,000 winner on The Wheel of Fortune. A decade before that, I won on Family Feud. Yes, I kissed Richard Dawson. He was a real sweetheart!
~I ran with the bulls at Pamplona in Spain, one of the craziest and most exciting things I’ve ever done.
~I scooped The New York Times from my computer at home as a freelance journalist for The Charlotte Observer by accidentally inciting a feud between John Rosemond, family psychologist and parenting expert, and the renowned pediatrician Dr. T. Berry Brazelton, over the topic of potty training; the story was picked up by The New York Times and Dr. Dean Edell of talk radio fame.
~I spent my entire junior year in college at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland, where I pulled pints of ale as barmaid at the university pub and listened to bagpipes a lot from my dorm window.
~I grew up one of seven kids on Johns Island, a rural sea island near Charleston, SC, and helped build my family’s log home. I also played in the pluff mud, sat on docks daydreaming, rode below the bowsprit on my parents’ sailboat and watched dolphins swim mere feet away, and in general, lived an idyllic Lowcountry life.
~A certified English teacher, I subbed regularly at the local high school while writing my first book, When Harry Met Molly. I love teenagers because they’re so misunderstood.
~I’ve been married for twenty-eight years to a great guy named Chuck, a Commander in the US Navy Reserves, and we have three kind, musically-inclined kids, all of whom have been brought up on the Beatles as the family’s go-to band.
~I’m obsessed with almost every Real Housewives franchise, and of course I love Southern Charm, even though almost no one on the show is from Charleston. I appeared with my daughter in one episode at a ball.
~I’m in my second year of a full-time, on-campus MFA in Creative Writing program at The College of Charleston. I’m loving being a student again with the all twenty-somethings! This semester, one of my classes is on Oscar Wilde–how I love that guy. It’s a true joy and privilege to be learning…don’t ever stop, ladies and gents! Keep challenging yourselves!
~I’ve occasionally rescued vulnerable cats and dogs and gotten them safely situated…I seem to stumble into those situations. It’s a never-ending problem, isn’t it? I think the most good I can do is take care of my own pets well. I love our two tabby cats, Benny and Joon, so much that my kids call me a crazy cat lady, and our sweet old black lab mix, Striker, is my constant companion.

Roseanna M. White’s Debut Sparkling British Historical Romance
Brook Eden has never known where she truly belongs. Though raised in the palace of Monaco, she’s British by birth and was brought to the Grimaldis under suspicious circumstances as a babe. When Brook’s friend Justin uncovers the fact that Brook is likely a missing heiress from Yorkshire, Brook leaves the sun of the Mediterranean to travel to the moors of the North Sea to the estate of her supposed family.
The mystery of her mother’s death haunts her, and though her father is quick to accept her, the rest of the family and the servants of Whitby Park are not. Only when Brook’s life is threatened do they draw close–but their loyalty may come too late to save Brook from the same threat that led to tragedy for her mother.
As heir to a dukedom, Justin is no stranger to balancing responsibilities. When the matters of his estate force him far from Brook, the distance between them reveals that what began as friendship has grown into something much more. But how can their very different loyalties and responsibilities ever come together?
And then, for a second time, the heiress of Whitby Park is stolen away because of
the very rare treasure in her possession–and this time only the servants of Whitby can save her.
