Brenda | 4 comments This is a clean book set in 1800s America. Within the first chapter or two there is a scene where the rich male hero is surprised by a women he was considering marrying who has shown up at his house with her mother (while he was away) and settled in. She expects their engagement to be eminent and wants to stake a claim on him. A dress shop girl comes to give the "not yet fiance" a bill for the dresses she has ordered and not paid for. At the same time the man arrives home and is kicking the "not yet fiance" out of his house. He sees the "fiance" to be an awful person in the process and decides to distance himself from her. He ends up hiring the dress shop girl to be his date for some business events he needs to attend.

When did you read it? Series or standalone? Author female or male? Remember the cover? Christian fiction? LDS fiction?

Brenda, is this a historical western romance or is it set in a large eastern US city?

How did the hero become rich?

Hello there -- Thanks for your interest. I read it within the past 5 years and the book is probably not older than 15 years. Could be Christian fiction. I think it was stand alone. Female author. And no I don't remember the cover.

It was a smaller us town, but maybe not all the way west. He was rich from family money and/or his own business success...if I remember correctly. Thanks for your interest.
