As the heiress to a fortune, Lady Lissa has become prey to too many suitors. When Lady Lissa-a wealthy heiress who is tired of being courted solely for her money-becomes attached to the notorious rakehell Gideon Gordon to scare all her suitors away, the tables turn as she falls for the dashing rogue and vows to melt his icy heart. Format:Mass Market Paperback.

The foliage thickened, becoming more cumbersome, the ground proving more uneven. Harry's mad dash did not let up, though, and neither did Lissa's. Harry's mad dash did not let up, though, and neither did Lissa's dles, her face scratched for the second time that day. But she kept running. Harry, like a deer, harbored the agility to jump over every fallen branch, to sidestep and swerve around the most nettlesome brambles. The boy seemed to have a sixth sense as to where to lead or not lead, and Lissa blindly followed.

I enjoyed this story, the first I've read by this author. It was well written and well edited, and there is a lot about nature and the ecosystems along the Dove River. I do wonder, however, at the historical accuracy of a wolf howling in Derbyshire in the mid 1800's, despite the amount of ambiance it may add to the author's scenery. (I did check this and according to Wikipedia, the last wolf in England was reportedly killed in 1746.)I am not any kind of fly fishing aficionado, but I hope the author researched that topic well, since the characters spent so much time at it. The plot was fairly direct but the characters were interesting enough to keep the story going.

The Hero is a man of black reputation, but really a good guy in disguise who bought the neighboring manor to get away from society. The heroine is an independent young heiress who finds herself inundated with fortune hunters after her mourning period for her father is finished. They meet up at the river that divides their properties and the H/h bond over fishing. Even though they have a rocky beginning, they find themselves attracted to each other despite the fact that they didn't want to be and both say they don't want marriage.

There is a villain, a charming child, secrets from the past, danger and a bit of scandalous behavior. This is a clean read, though, only kissing, mild violence, no profanity.

Heat factor mild.

The heroine is just coming out of mourning the death of her father, and as she is a rich young woman, she is attracting many suitors -- and most are more interested in her wealth than her lovely person. So she decides to have a rumor started linking her to her neighbor. The neighbor had a terrible reputation at one time but things have settled down.

One of the men after her had placed a necklace about her throat saying if she didn't return it by a certain time then he would consider that her consent to his suit. The necklace held a locket with the man's name engraved on it. She has not been able to remove the necklace, which seems ridiculous to me. Rip it off, for crying out loud! Or have one of the more capable staff members in your employ get it off. There has to be a blacksmith in the village who could have it off within seconds.

At any rate, her plan is to meet the hero at a trout stream. Her father had been big on fishing and taught her all sorts of information about it. And the reader gets to learn all about it too. I enjoy trout fishing myself but . . . well, yawn. I suppose this sort of in depth stuff is supposed to make a story more realistic but . . well, yawn.

And you will never guess! The unremovable necklace falls into the water and a trout swallows it. She manages to meet the hero and asks him to catch that particular trout. Her maid wanders away and starts the rumor, telling the worst gossip in town.

The heroine and hero spend the day fishing and spend a little time in his fishing lodge where things get a bit heated. That evening she hosts a dance. The hero has learned she wanted to link the two of them in order to get rid of the suitors. He is not pleased and shows up uninvited. He puts on quite a romantic display for the guests.

The locket fellow is slimy and the reader can put a couple of things together quickly. The hero has a son who is not his biologically. The usual threats ensue.

She has already realized she loves him -- he loves her. Happy ending.

Not a bad story but there was a lot of detail I could have done without.

I enjoyed this book a lot and thought that the story line was different to the usual. It was a quick easy read. I see there isn't a summary by the other reviewers so here goes:

Lady Lissa is a beautiful heiress who'd always been protected from fortune hunters by her father. Her father has died and now she is being harassed by many fortune hunters including a very persistent one (who is the villain). She's heard about the reclusive and dangerous earl, with a dangerous reputation, who has bought a lodge neighbouring her home, this is the H. She decides to set up a chance meeting with the Earl while he's out fishing, so that she can put the story about that she's having a liason with him. She hopes that this would scare off her would be suitors.

What she doesn't take into account is the actions of the Earl himself, who doesn't like being used. He turns the tables on her by insisting on seeing her and being seen with her. He doesn't want to get married as he's been scarred in the past.

It's a delightful tale and is thoroughly entertaining.

After Lady Lissa Lovington came out of mourning, she was bombarded by suitors. Some said she was the most beautiful woman they'd ever seen, but Lissa knows most of these men are after her fortune. She comes up with this hair-brained scheme to appear to have a liaison with Gabriel Gorden, the Earl of Wylde. Vicious rumors surround him, and he's known as the "Heartless Lord," as well as for his ability in any altercation. What she hadn't planned on was being interested in the man, what problems her scheme might bring him, or how he might react.

I did find some minor problems with the book. The beginning is very weak, where the stage is set by narration in a passive voice. It does soon get better, however. There were also some long, drawn-out passages about things that I really didn't care to visualize, like Aunt Prudence's bedroom. Tilly's overuse of "I be" instead of "I am" also became annoying. However, the book was much better than many of the reviews let me to believe. Lissa, Gabriel, and Harry are very likeable and quite different than most main characters. Although the plot wasn't the best, and Lissa's plan didn't really fit with the time period, the book certainly held my interest.
