For Hudson, the newly titled Viscount Stildon, moving to England from India where he was born and raised was already an arduous enough endeavor. When he learns the fate of the racing empire he inherited along with his title depends upon him getting in the good graces of another stable owner, he’s even more at a loss.
The stable at the neighboring estate has been Miss Bianca Snowley’s refuge for years, and when a strange man appears to be stealing the horses, she jumps to their protection without a second thought. Upon learning Hudson is actually the new owner, she can’t help but be intrigued by the area’s newest eligible bachelor.
Any thought of romance is quickly set aside, however, when Hudson proposes they work together to secure suitable spouses for each other. As their friendship grows, Hudson and Bianca begin to reconsider what they truly want in life. But will societal expectations and the weight of their responsibilities keep them from pursuing their true desires?
I am a Kristi Ann Hunter fan. I always enjoy her books and was excited to dive into this new series.
This one took me awhile to get into but I kept pressing on because I knew Kristi wouldn’t let me down and she didn’t. About half way through I was hooked.
Our two main characters drove me a bit crazy, why couldn’t Hudson just see that Bianca was the woman he should be with, even if she didn’t have horses to add to the marriage. But, of course, that is what made it so interesting. I couldn’t wait to see how it would all play out.
I will look forward to the next book in this series.
