When her eccentric aunt dies suddenly bequeaths her the key to a falling-down cottage in Cornwall, Lucy Westmore is surprised. After all, she scarcely knows her aunt, and her memories of Heathmore are murky, at best. But even more surprising is the part of Lucy’s inheritance that doesn’t come with a key: an old leather journal that provides the details of her mysterious aunt’s life and—for better or worse—gives Lucy all the instructions she needs to live the life of a scandalous spinster.

Lord Thomas Branston has spent the last five years in Cornwall, hiding from his painful past. Nothing has been tempting enough to lure him back to London…until now. He alone knows the real value of the property, and he’s determined to buy Heathmore before Miss Westmore ruins everything and sells it off to the highest bidder.

Emboldened by the guidance in her aunt’s diary, Lucy refuses to sell the property, not even when Lord Branston’s offers escalate, and not even when the house turns out to be truly uninhabitable. When the negotiations turn heated, Lucy suspects something more sinister is afoot. Branston is offering her far more than the property seems worth. Worse, he seems willing to stoop to less than gentlemanly means to scare her off the land.

But Lucy has no intention of giving up her one chance for independence.

And Thomas has no intention of abandoning his suit.

But is it the property or the spitfire of a spinster that’s got his heart all tied up? And what is he willing to offer for both?

I think I am going to need to wait until I retire to write those, though, and it would probably be more women's fiction with strong romantic elements. For the near future, staying with my first love, which is straight-up historical romance. (less)

“Though she would never admit it to polite Society, Lady Georgette Thorold hated brandy almost as much as she hated husbands. So it was the cruelest of jokes when she awoke with nary a clue to her surroundings, smelling like one and pressed up against the other.”
Jennifer McQuiston, What Happens in Scotland

“One reads to escape life's troubles rather than dwell upon its more disturbing realities”
Jennifer McQuiston , Diary of an Accidental Wallflower

“Why, how refreshing it is to hear a man stand in judgment of a woman. And how original of you, sir.”
