He’s falling for a princess…
But she’s a commoner!

An Allied at the Altar story: A madcap scheme to secure a patron for her father’s play finds Elidh Easton at a house party, dressed as Italian royalty! But Elidh catches the eye of their dashing host, Sutton Keynes, who has four weeks to find a noble bride. He’d never look twice at her normally – poor, plain and untitled – but in the moment, it’s easy to imagine they have a future!

Thoroughly enjoyable book

Rating By Sally,08/05/2019

This was an intriguing book – a reverse of Cinderella in a way, in that the heroine (Eilidh Easton) had to appear before midnight, rather than disappear. By appearing she is affirming her love and trust in the hero, Sutton Keynes. Sutton is compelled to marry before four weeks were up from the reading of his Uncle’s will, in order to inherit his fortune and thwart his cousin’s desire for the money in order to complete various nefarious deals. The only proviso of the will is that Sutton has to marry a lady of title. An amusing house party ensues and it’s clear that artifice, jockeying for Sutton’s attention and back-stabbing are the norm, apart from the Principessa Chiara who is refreshingly disinterested in snaring Sutton and incredibly in tune with his real likes which are far removed from society and based on honesty, truth and the outdoors. Sutton and Chiara fall in love, with gentle tenderness, but Chiara guards a secret and cannot bear it if Sutton discovers what it is and hates her. Rather than humiliate him, she leaves. There is a nail-biting finish to the story – will Sutton find Chiara, will Chiara tell her secret, will Sutton win the bride of his heart and does he inherit his Uncle’s fortune? There are some thoughtful, underlying messages about honesty in love, a desire to do right, and that most forms of pretence generally cause heartbreak or damage. However, true and real love will always win in the end. Cannot recommend enough. I loved it from start to finish and the ending is really excellent. I’ve already bought another book by this author.
