His Spirited Lady (Enterprising Women Book 2) by Peri Maxwell
Mix two fake lovers, age over a disastrous house party, distill the romance; and savor the happily ever after.
Richard Ferrand arrives in Thetford to visit his family and to seek advice on a recent inheritance. He’s expecting it to be a brief visit. His former brother-in-law has a new family, and Richard is eager to return to his familiar bachelor businessman routine. That all changes when he comes to the rescue of a young lady with plans of her own.
Amelia Chitester has spent her life being the perfect society Miss—at least when people are watching. When they’re not, she’s busy creating the county’s best whiskey. That all changes when her gravely ill father insists she marry so that she will have a protector after he dies.
When Richard helps Amelia avoid a persistent suitor, she sees an answer to several of her problems.He needs a British distributor for his newly acquired French wine, and she needs a fake fiancé to take her off the marriage market. Richard thinks she’s daft—irresistibly beautiful, totally disarming, and completely daft--but he agrees to help because he admires her commitment to her family and her home.
As they work to fool their families and the entire village, it grows difficult to live out their lie. Amelia didn’t figure on the soft side of her convenient rake, and Richard wasn’t prepared for the stubborn charm of his fake conquest.
Soon they’re both faced with the choice of keeping their businesses or losing their hearts.
