Connie Brockway's novel of unexpected love begins with a series of letters between a world-weary adventurer and the beautiful suffragette whose passion calls him home.
"Dear Mr. Thorne, For the next five years, I will profitably manage this estate. I will deliver to you an allowance and I will prove that women are just as capable as men." Lillian Bede is shocked when she is tapped to run the affairs of an exquisite country manor. But she accepts the challenge, taking the opportunity to put her politics into practice. There's only one snag: Lily's ward, the infuriating, incorrigible globe-trotter Avery Thorne.
"My Dear Miss Bede, Forgive me if I fail to shudder. Pray, do whatever you bloody well want, can, or must." Avery's inheritance is on hiatus after his uncle dies--and his childhood home is in the hands of some domineering usurper. But when he finally returns, Avery finds that his antagonist is not at all what he expected. In fact, Lily Bede is stunning, exotic, provocative--and impossible to resist.
