Shortlisted for the Romantic Novelists' Association's "Debut Romantic Novel" Award.
Ariana Byrne knows how to survive. After becoming a guardian to her four little sisters after their parents died when she was only eighteen, she had to grow up quickly. Now she’s in her twenties, stuck in a loveless marriage to Greg, trying to make ends meet for her young twins, William and Leo.
So when Ari is told that she’s actually the Right Honourable Lady de Foix, Countess of Hiverton, owner of a sprawling estate in the village of Saxburgh, Norfolk, her first instinct is laughter. Surely the girl who has to choose between food and keeping the lights on isn’t rich beyond her wildest dreams?
She knows how to take care of her sisters and her children, but how on earth can Ari take care of an entire village? How will she fight off the circling land developers from Saxburgh, and stop her in-laws from grabbing all the money for themselves?
And while she’s struggling to settle in and settle down, she’s making new friends and new mistakes. Yet, trusting her gorgeous, new neighbour, Sebastian Flint-Hyssop may be the biggest one of all…
She’s swapped sink estate for country estate… but can a girl from inner-city London learn how to become a Lady?
Fans of Jenny Colgan, Trisha Ashley and Carole Matthews will love this romantic, feel-good read.
