Tabitha Timmons life sucks.
If there was ever anyone in need of a Prince Charming…well, it’s Tabitha. She’s forced to sleep in the attic of her family’s home in the care of her late father’s brother. Of course, she doesn’t mind, its keeps her from having to spend time in her aunt or uncle’s vile company. She also doesn’t mind having to help with the daily chores—that might leave her too much time to think. Her one saving grace—so far—is being able to attend the Society meetings. When her aunt and uncle turn to sugar and spice, something is definitely afoot. Yes, she’s inherited a fortune and now family is coming out of the woodwork.
Unfortunately, to retain her fortune, she has to marry by her twenty-fifth birthday. It’s in two weeks.
Preston is a disaster waiting to happen. He’s a bit spoiled and young, but so adorable. He does not like to eat alone. So when his friend, Lord Roxley, deserts him and sticks him with Tabitha, sparks fly. He is out to save Tabitha from her own rotten decisions, and in the meantime, finds a lot more than a girl ready to acquiesce to everyone’s whims. She’s a bit of a rebellion—just like him.
This story had me laughing out loud, and making sure the book goes in my “to be read again” pile. —Kathy L Wheeler
