The Templeton siblings have inherited a fortune. But there’s a catch…
I, George Lockett, do decree that my grandchildren, herein named, will inherit my fortune in its entirety, so long as they fulfill the following terms. Each person must complete their task to my lawyer’s satisfaction or their share of the inheritance shall be forfeit.
There are many reasons Lady Angel Templeton needs her grandfather’s money. Of course she wants to be less of a burden to her oldest brother but, goodness, once she has even more money, she can have her pick of the men! A certain Duke of Norwick would be a fool to ignore her…
Unfortunately, their beloved grandfather decided not to make it easy on the Templetons, though Angel is convinced her task must be the hardest. To fulfill the terms of the will, she must perform unpaid duties as a lady’s companion for two months to the entirely unmanageable Mrs. Stone.
Two whole months of work.
What’s worse, Mrs. Stone is determined to be an even bigger handful than Angel herself.
No…what’s worse, is the lady comes along with a miserable wretch of a nephew. While she cannot deny he is handsome in that dark, brooding way so many women adore, Angel does not enjoy the company of serious men—especially when they have already declared they do not trust her one jot.
Well, she doesn’t trust him either. It soon becomes obvious why the stern Mr. Hunter is determined to haunt her every move—he must want Mrs. Stone’s money!
Well, Angel cannot allow anything happen to her new friend, especially when she risks losing everything.
Two whole months of work…. There are many reasons Lady Angel Templeton needs her grandfather’s money. Unfortunately, their beloved grandfather decided not to make it easy on the Templetons, though Angel is convinced her task must be the hardest. What’s worse, Mrs. Stone is determined to be an even bigger handful than Angel herself.
No…what’s worse, is the lady comes along with a miserable wretch of a nephew.
Angel is in for a rude awakening. Her task may seem impossible to her but it really is an easy one. Being a companion for a short stint to this lovely older lady is a joy.
Mrs. Stone’s nephew is the real stumbling block in this delightful and sometimes humorous novella.
This quick read is the first in this new series.
I gave this sweet, short read 4.4 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development. We get more than a glimpse at the characters of all involved.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
About Samantha Holt:
USA Today bestselling author Samantha Holt lives in a small village in England with her twin girls and a dachshund called Duke. If you’re not sure where to start why not try…
Amelia and the Viscount (Bluestocking Brides #1) for a fun, slightly hot shorter length read. Meet the Chadwick sisters and follow their adventures in each of their standalone stories.
You’re the Rogue That I Want (Rogues of Redmere #1) is a longer read with heat, witty dialogue, a feisty heroine and adventure. All books in the series are standalone.
Sinful Confessions is the first in the Cynfell Brothers Series. These are all novella length and standalone–ideal for a quick dip into the world of the sexy Cynfell brothers.
Wake Me With a Kiss is a sweet, fairytale romance. Twists on Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella are also available if you love a clean, fun read.
To Steal a Highlander’s Heart is a full length dive into the world of sexy highlanders. For those who love braw Scots, some steamy scenes, and medieval romance, this series is a perfect escape.
