Crystal's rating: 4 of 5 stars
I don't generally go for historical romances as I typically don't get sucked into the story as quickly as modern day romances. But I found myself enjoying this one.
The idea of Amelia willing to "compromise" herself in order to trap a husband so she can stay in England was a new twist for me. I loved the lengths she was willing to go to so that she could get what she wanted. She knew that she wanted to have life on her terms. I found her to be a well-rounded character and liked all her determination and witty banter with other characters in the story.
Lord Goldstone was just what Amelia needed. They're both headstrong, but it worked for them as a "couple". Especially with him trying to trip her up so that he could have his way. In the end through all their separate plans, back and forth banter, and scheming they gave me a good laugh and plenty of feels.

With the help of Lady Grace and Lady Sarah, Lady Amelia gets her uncle to agree to give her four weeks to settle her affairs and unbeknownst to him…find an English lord to marry so she can remain in her beloved England. Despite her mourning period she endeavors to trap one of London’s eligible bachelors in matrimony.
Lord Goldstone, Lady Grace’s nephew is devilishly handsome, but a Scottish Duke and so entirely unacceptable as a possible husband. After all Scotland is not her beloved London and environs. He also has a nasty habit of showing up at all the wrong moments and thwarting her carefully laid plans to ensnare a suitable husband. Sparks fly as the pair find themselves at odds with each other and drawn to each other at the same time. Can they find a way to stop arguing long enough to explore their growing passion? Is it strong enough to make Lady Amelia give up her English home after all? Or will Lady Amelia find a suitable English lord and avoid social exile in America? Time is running out.
