Her attempts at perfection fall short. He cannot settle for anything less.
Lady Francine Brightmore is acutely aware that she does not measure up to expectations. A daughter of an earl ought to be graceful, well-spoken and demure. However, try as she might, Fanny is none of these things. With a duke and dowager duchess coming to stay, the expectations placed on her have never been higher. Fanny fears her only hope may be to avoid their company altogether.
Between tending to his mother’s health and his plans to fulfill a lifelong endeavor, Nicholas Thynne, Duke of Cravenhurst, has enough on his mind when he visits Roselund Heights. And yet he must also persist in his efforts to find a new bride. However, finding someone to fill the role of duchess will not be an easy task. Not any eligible woman will do, as Nicholas has been raised to expect nothing less than perfection.
When two secrets bring Fanny and Nicholas closer together, they find in each other an unexpected friend. Despite their growing attraction, the demands for perfection prove powerful. Will either be able to lay aside expectations and have the courage to risk their hearts?
