Calvin Seton, former military until leg injuries prevented his return, has been sent on a mission by a family friend, the Duke of Danby, find his illegitimate granddaughter in America & bring her home. A mission that may prove to be harder than he thought once he finds Dorothy Paxton – inn keeper with less than ton approved manners.
Calvin eventually convinces Dorothy to sail to England with him in exchange for the much need medical care for her half-brother. Her part of the bargain – meet with the Duke AND take etiquette lessons from her chaperone during the voyage.
As they set sail can Dorothy protect her heart from succumbing to her mother’s fate? Can Calvin let her go since he thinks he’s not worthy of the Duke of Danby’s granddaughter?
A battle of wits, an entertaining voyage & the inevitable meeting with the Duke of Danby written by Marie Higgins is a wonderful tale. Don’t miss out!
I liked the idea of one of the duke's grandchildren being a spunky American lass who can hold her own in a bar fight. I just wish the author hadn't felt the need to make her into a lady by the time she met the duke. It would have been so much more fun if she had been her brash, unpolished self. I still liked the story, especially the chance for Dorothy and Calvin to grow closer on that long voyage to England, despite their very proper chaperone.
