About the book:
Captain Charles Wyvern owes a great debt to the man who saved his life—especially since Major Richardson lost his own life in the process. The major’s dying wish is for his love to be relayed to his fiancée, and for the captain to look after her needs. But along the way, Charles learns of another obligation that has fallen on his shoulders: due to a death in the family, he is now the Earl of Rothwell.
His new role includes an estate in need of a leader and a trio of orphaned girls, all wards of the former earl. Wyvern understands war; young ladies and properties he does not. As a solution, Charles proposes a marriage of convenience to the late major’s betrothed, the bereaved Lady Sophia Haverly.
Sophie is surprised to find she isn’t opposed to the idea. It will help her care for Richardson’s elderly mother, and she’s already fallen in love with the wayward girls on the Rothwell estate. This alliance is a chance to repay the captain who has done so much for her care, and a distraction from her grief. When Wyvern returns to his commission at sea, she’ll stay behind to oversee his property and wards.
It sounds so simple. Until the stalwart captain is arrested on suspicion of smuggling, and Sophie realizes how much he’s come to mean to her. Now she must learn to fight, not only for his freedom but also for his love.
I have been eagerly awaiting this book! I have loved this entire series and loved this book too! I’m sad that it is over. I would love to read more of this series or even just about a couple of the characters. I finished this one with a happy sigh. I would highly recommend this book!
