Miss Edith Elliott wants Mr Nelson James. Mr Nelson James wants Miss Edith Elliott. But the rule of attraction has little say in London Society. Edith learns quickly that as the daughter of one of London’s wealthiest bankers, she has to live by a certain set of rules. Yes, rules – something she hates but needs to live with. She is not allowed to eat to her heart’s content. She is not allowed to shy away from the conversation. But most importantly, Edith is only allowed to marry a man with a title. So, denying her heart, she turned her back on herself and looked toward destiny.
Too bad the man who happens to catch her eye does not play by the rules. Nelson James is a mathematician, wealthy landed gentry and the inventor of a new creation that is bound to change the course of the world forever. But what Nelson doesn’t have is a title. Still, to have Edith in his arms, he is willing to give away everything he owns for simply one week in her presence. And it is one week that neither will ever forget.
Will destiny and rules win the day or will Nelson and Edith find a way to gain their happy-ever-after?
“Already, her body was growing into an inferno of want for him and him alone.”
On the one hand I had really enjoyed this book, but on the other hand, I didn’t think that this book was as good as the other ones that I’ve already read. I felt that at times this book got a little too confusing and it was hard to keep up with all the different characters. It was just too hard to keep track, so I had just gone with it. I really lost interest in reading the rest of the novel and had taken a break before finally finishing it. There were also many editing issues. I think this book should have gone through a more thorough edit. I’m hoping that the next book would be better though.
