This is the second book in this series, I have not read the first book but wish I had not that I was lost or that this can not be read as a standalone, I just like to start from the beginning. We meet Daniel Firth(Viscount Whitfield) he finds out that his father willed Rose Cottage to someone, who and why did he do that. Then we meet Penelope Pendleton who is the one that Rose Cottage was willed to, and it happens just when she needs it, but why was it left to her. Penelope and Daniel team up to ...more

I think Daniel gets quite shocked with his girl's boldness, the nan doesn't know what to do, “did you like it?” she asked. Daniel groped for words. One didn’t speak to young ladies about such matters. It wasn’t done. They would be scandalized and offended." I liked this book, I liked Daniel. It was an enjoyable read.

This historical romance was a nice and quick read. I liked how detailed it was. Though the characters were a bit flat and the romance lacked chemistry.

I received an advanced readers copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

I loved this second book in Ms. Ashford’s The Way to a Lord’s Heart series. I found it just as enjoyable as the first. This story tells a tale of romance, but the hero and heroine are not the typical characters found in historical romances. The heroine doesn’t want to be rescued and the hero doesn’t see himself as such.
Daniel Frith, Viscount Whitfield, unexpectedly came into his title when his parents were killed in a shipwreck returning to India. Although, Daniel didn’t have a good or remotely

3.5 A gentle and sweet historical romance between two people with baggage. I liked Penelope's spirit and Daniel's vulnerability, and the little mystery of his mother's notebooks was a great addition.

I thought this book was odd, and not in a good way. It seemed that the book was set with Penelope and Daniel trying to find the reason why she was left Rose Cottage. So they spent almost the whole book looking through more than 100 years worth of receipts and documents trying to find the reason. Boring right? I did enjoy the first book in this series so I wanted to give it the benefit. Now I wish I hadn't. I only hope that the next book with be a lot more entertaining.

Some books start out with a bang. The hero and heroine are instantly in love - and lust. Others meander pleasantly along, letting our leads get to actually know and like each other before love comes to call. This lovely story fits in the second category.

Penelope Pendleton is moving into Rose Cottage, after having to move from her family home. This cottage was willed to her by a mysterious benefactor; she knows not who or why. Daniel Frith, the fairly newly minted Viscount Whitfield, comes across
