"I love you, Minerva. I love that you believe in me no matter what. I love how you take whatever you see and distill it into your books. I love your clever mind and your generous heart and every inch of your beautiful body. I love you even when you give me heart failure, by risking your life before my very eyes." He smiled tenderly. "I only hope in time I can prove worthy of your love."

Minerva is an author at a time when her talent is not appreciated. In fact, it's frowned upon. Her grandmother has declared that all her grandchildren must get married or they'll lose their inheritance. This is not a problem for Minerva since she can support herself with her writing. Her siblings, however, aren't so lucky and since the mandate is that they ALL must marry she feels forced to do so as well.

In an attempt to force her grandmother to take back the mandate she puts an ad in the publication her stories run in for a husband. When Giles Masters, the man she's had an attraction to for years, shows up to apply for the position she thinks he's not serious. So while Minerva tries to put her plan in place to get her grandmother to rescind her marriage mandate, Giles has a plan of his own - To woo a reluctant lady.

A very fun read. This one is going on my keeper shelf. I gave it a 5 out of 5 stars. It has romance, a mystery, and fun. I loved it.
