Miss Onyx Hamilton is about to make what everyone agrees is a perfect marriage―until handsome Major Jack Beresford comes galloping into her life. But with his fortune and connections, Onyx knows he’d never ask for her hand, would he? New and longtime fans alike will relish this delightful romance from Carla Kelly. Charming, sweet, and full of fun, it’s simply impossible to put down.
Wow, the blurb was absolutely right. I couldn't put it down.
This is another wonderful Carla Kelly story, with a war-weary, teasing rogue of a hero and a heroine who believes that marriage to a prosy, hypocritical parson is the best she can hope for. (Really, her fiance makes Mr. Collins look like an ideal husband.)
With a large cast of secondary characters, there's adventure, romance, tragedy, and healing in this lovely story. (One unnecessary and unconvincing disclosure near the end did not bother me enough to deduct even half of a star.)
Any fan of Carla Kelly will love this book.
