Captain Lord Henry Challoner is a young viscount who because of trying to drown thoughts of war with drink and women. His father sends him to Puddling-on-the-Wold to reform him. All is going as planned until Henry stumbles (literally) upon Rachel Evergreen. Despite trying to stay away, Henry wears her down with his charm and determination. How this will work with the strict structure of the town is the question.
This book reminds me a lot of Tessa Dare’s Spindle Cove series. This one has a similar humor but because of some of the serious subject matters (PSTD, abusive marriages and such) I felt that it was over abundant in humor. It was meant to be over-the-top unbelievable which was successfully done but it missed the mark in giving weight to other issues. 4 stars if the humor aspect was touted more in the description.
