I wrote a written review from reading the book and I will put that here :) In this story we have Cherry Elton and Lord Skylar Westbrooke Cherry is sort of a wild child for the times. Her stepmother is beside herself on how to curb Cherry. She decides to marry off Cherry as she is of age and needs to calm down. Cherry however wants no part of it and decides to take off in the middle of the night on her horse. While riding in the night she stumbles upon a man who immediately takes her in his arms. She doesn’t know what to think of this man but immediately sparks fly and attraction is there. See the thing is her Step-Mother never told her the name of the man she had setup for her to marry . So when Cherry runs into this man (Sky Westbrooke) she has no idea that this is the man. And of course at the time Sky has no idea that it is Cherry who was to be his bride. Sky takes her in as a Governess to his unruly siblings. After having met Cherry he doesn’t want to even think of marrying the woman he had agreed to marry. The story plays out very nicely and in many parts you find yourself Laughing out Loud at Cherry’s escapades.She is a strong headed young woman. The attraction between Cherry and Sky plays out beautifully. They both want each other all the while thinking they were to be with someone else. What a comical, adorable Romance.I truly enjoyed it and I definetly would recommend it. If you like Historical Romance and a little comedy
