Elsbeth Blakely: An orphan who craves independence
Viscount Andrew Radford: A notorious rogue used to getting what he wants
A clash of wills – who will win?
The world always ignored Elsbeth Blakely, given that she was just another young orphan at the Smithfield House for Girls. She was never a part of the bustling world of London Smithfield Market, cooped up inside the great house with no freedom of her own.
However, life suddenly takes a turn for the worse when Elsbeth meets Viscount Andrew Radford. A notorious carousing rogue, Lord Radford sets his sights on Elsbeth to be his latest object of affection, expecting that she will simply fall into his arms as every other lady has.
But Elsbeth is determined to have her independence. Despite being forced into working at the Radford estate, Elsbeth stands up to the young viscount, finding him determined to get what he wants from her.
But, underneath it all, is Lord Radford really the scoundrel that he seems?
When news of Elsbeth’s real family comes to light, Elsbeth finds her whole world turned upside down, with only Lord Radford able to help. One thing is for certain, however, Elsbeth Blakely is not who she seems either.

There was a great deal of meandering in the opening of this book. A lot of inane words that could have been left out as all it really did was act as a filler. Too many words and not enough conversation between characters. I did not care one wit for the Hero of this book. He was arrogant, boorish, and forced his unwanted attentions on the Heroine even after she had let her feelings be made known. He just wouldn't take no for an answer which, to this reader, proved him to lack integrity or respect for anyone he felt beneath him. He was absolutely repugnant. The Heroine was a headstrong orphan determined to live her life the way she wanted. In the orphanage, she was forced to do everyone elses' bidding and, therefore, more than ready to gain her freedom from all other control. There were many twists and turns in this story; some that brought surprise after surprise while still others were either unremarkable or unacceptable to the reader. The story also brought up uneasy questions like, could one conversation truly bring about an instant change in another person's life? Could a person, upon having their faults held up before them, make a 180 degree instant turn for the better? For a romance novel, it was sad to read a book that had little to no romance, no chemistry, no passion, and absolutely no humor. It was all drama and very high angst from beginning to end. The best that can be said is that it was...a decent book. No great love affair and definitely does not win the Keeper for the Shelves award from this reader.
