Family secrets, black tie galas, forbidden love, and a lot of wine.
When Cara inherits a Pemberley worthy English estate, she doesn’t bargain on spending the summer fighting and flirting with co-beneficiary Reid. Isolated in a Somerset mansion has its perks, as well as its troubles, for these two hot-tempered lovers.
This. This is what love is.
I'm an American girl, through and through, with a sentimental side. He's a posh Englishman who only cares about the bottom line. He's absolutely maddening, and if he weren't the co-beneficiary of my grandfather's English estate I'd have nothing to do with him. Trust me, he feels the same way about me. He's stuffy and rigid, but undeniably handsome.
Playing house with Reid was not how I planned on spending my summer, but now that we're stuck together under the same roof, I'm starting to see him in a whole new light.
It's been twenty years since Cara has stepped foot in England. Trevor and Anna must have been out of their minds to bequeath her half of the estate. Then again, she convinced me to spend the summer going through their house, so maybe I'm the one that's truly lost it.
Staying in Somerset, away from my life in London, has nothing to do with how sexy she is. At least that's what I've been telling myself. But I'd be lying if I claimed I'm only here for the money, because the longer it takes to settle the estate, the more I want this summer with Cara to last forever.
