Mellie has a plan
Mellie Smithson is trapped in the country with no suitors and no prospects on the horizon except, perhaps, the exasperating—although admittedly handsome—guest of her father. She's looking for any excuse to go to London to meet more eligible men.
Trevor has a problem
Trevor Anaedsley's grandfather has cut off his funds until such time as he gets engaged. Trevor escapes to the country—ostensibly to visit his old tutor Mr. Smithson but actually to duck his creditors—where he meets Smithson's lovely daughter Mellie. The obvious solution is suddenly before him—but the lady has ideas of her own, and Trevor's going to have to measure up...
A delightfully fun read. I couldn't get enough. Mellie and Trevor have known each other for years, as her father was his tutor and they're always talking science. Even though they don't particularly like each other, a fake engagement is just the thing to solve both their problems. He gets the fiance he need to get access to his money again and she gets her season in London. Mellie is a great heroine. She's very intelligent and a problem solver. It is fun to watch Trevor try to find her a suitor. Surprisingly, none of them seem to be good enough. Wonder why... I highly recommend for those who like their romance funny, steamy, and completely entertaining.
