A deathbed promise puts one man at odds with the desire of his heart while one woman’s duty to family may cost her everything she’d ever dreamed of.
Despite Emma Richards's fanciful dreams growing up in the shadow of King Arthur’s castle and the manor on the cliff, the orphan is now trapped inland serving her wealthy cousins with no hope for her own future.
Sir Grayson Wentworth spent his years at Cambridge dreaming of the Cornwall coast and wishing he could return to the happy days of his youth. Called home to his father’s deathbed, the young baron soon learns he has inherited a title, a neglected estate, and a betrothal agreement he knew nothing about.
When the new Lord Danvers travels to execute the last matters of his father’s will, he finds himself promised to one woman and falling for another. Can he keep his vow to find a wife and win her heart? Or will honor be sacrificed in the name of love?

What a delight it was to read this book! Both Grayson and Emma found themselves stuck in dire circumstances not of their doing, yet sought truth and honor in their reactions to those predicaments. It was easy to love those characters. The minor characters were quite believably written, as well.
The pace of this book was just right, and I was always surprised at the turns of events throughout the story. I recommend this book for readers of historical romance.
I received an e-ARC of this book from the author for review purposes. The thoughts expressed here are my own.
