Tired of his family's matchmaking attempts and their kind but annoying cosseting, war-blinded Vincent Hunt, Viscount Darleigh, takes his valet and secretly escapes to the small Somerset village where he grew up. But peace and anonymity are not to be had. When Sophia Fry sees her shallow, marriage-minded cousin leading the unwitting viscount into a compromising situation at a local assembly, she foils the plan-and ends up turned out by her relatives and, in a surprise twist, married to Vincent herself. Determined to be a helpmate to Vincent-at least for the agreed-upon year-Sophie gradually helps him to take charge of his life, even though she fears he eventually will no longer need her.
Verdict: This touching, totally enthralling story overflows with subtle humor, brilliant dialog, breathtaking sensuality, and supporting characters you want to know better. Balogh (The Proposal) lives in Canada.
