Lord William is absolutely sure he is deeply in love with Lady Avalon, and proposes, only to be rebuffed, she is to marry another. William is heartbroken. And remains this way for many years.

Lady Theodora Worth is the new heir to the Earldom of Eanruig, a title she inherits from her grandfather, as seems to be the case with certain titles in Scotland. Thea has spent much of the last seven years caring for her grandfather and running his estates. Her grandfather had dementia and hide items from Thea, or those he perceived to be a threat including the document that shows the line of those who should inherit the title. This becomes the focus of Thea’s time as she must defend her right to the title from her cousin. She must also learn the ton etiquette as she is very much clueless about these things, even pouring tea. After her case is denied, Thea returns home to lick her wounds, but finds comfort, and her HEA.

Thea has the backing of the Duke and Duchess of Langham, and also every other member of William’s family who want them to be together, and are pushing them together. William is reluctant as he believes he should feel a connection immediately with the woman he is supposed to love, even though he does feel something for Thea. A feeling he constantly denies, even inviting his friends to meet Thea so she might select one of them if she needs a fake fiancé for her court case.

I am loving this series around the Caversham family. They all find their match and forever love. This particular story has the interesting thread with Thea being from the fringes of society and with gossip swirling about if she murdered her grandfather. She doesn’t have the society skills the normal girl or young woman of the times should. These caused Thea some distress when she failed, but was triumphant when she had her successes. Thea is like the fish out of water.
