About the book:Miss Onyx Hamilton is about to make what everyone agrees is a perfect marriage—until handsome Major Jack Beresford comes galloping into her life. But with his fortune and connections, Onyx knows he’d never ask for her hand, would he? New and longtime fans alike will relish this delightful romance from Carla Kelly. Charming, sweet, and full of fun, it’s simply impossible to stop reading.

My review: This book was awesome! I loved Onyx, I loved the way that she was a strong woman, full of pluck and courage. She didn't want to marry Andrew Littletree, but knew that she really had no choice. She was an illegitimate baby, brought up by a pastor who had died, left with his widow and her new husband. I didn't like the way that Andrew Littletree treated her, he seemed to look down on her and acted like he was way better than she was. I was glad to see Jack Beresford come into her life in the stormy way that he did. I also thought it was great that he kept his wealth from Onyx at the beginning of their relationship. It left her feeling as though he really could care for her, but it complicated things later. The plot was great, keeping you interested until the very end. I thought the ending was great too, and I was thrilled that it was clean. This is one of those books that you don't want to put down until it's finished. 

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
