Widowed Vanessa Damery had two young children to raise, a deteriorating estate to improve, and a household full of pseudo-relatives and dependents to placate. She did not need the advent of her late husband's cousin (and her co-trustee in his estate). And if Lord Alvescot expected gratitude for his interference, well, he'd have to look elsewhere!
A gentle romance. Liked that the romantic leads were adults, thought about their relationship, and talked with each other. Their characters were nuanced and interesting. Wish there had been a bit more focus on the couple, and less on how the heroine could get a pack of truly despicable and encroaching relatives to vacate her home.
