About this ebook

Please Note: This is an expanded version of a very similar book published under the title His Lordship's Vow...

Bereft of beauty as well as fortune, the exceedingly plain Miss Jane Featherstone has failed to attract any suitor during her three Seasons. Rather than be a burden to her brother and his obnoxious wife, Miss Featherstone vows to accept the first man who asks—even though she's always worshipped a lord who's far above her touch. . .

Lord Slade must marry an heiress in order to honor the deathbed vow he made to his father, and he needs Miss Featherstone's help in wooing her beautiful cousin. After her initial anger, Miss Featherstone agrees to his scheme, telling him she's doing so because she admires his Parliamentary record of humanitarian legislation and his reverence for truth. But the more he's with the two cousins, the more attracted he becomes to Miss Featherstone. What's a man of his word to do? Break a vow to a beloved father—or follow his heart with Miss Featherstone?

Bereft of beauty as well as fortune, Miss Jane Featherstone has failed to attract any suitor during her three Seasons. Rather than be a burden to her brother and his obnoxious wife, Miss Featherstone vows to accept the first man who asks even though she's always worshipped a lord who's far above her touch. Jack St John, Lord Slade must marry an heiress in order to honour the deathbed Vow he made to his father, and he needs Miss Featherstone's help in wooing her beautiful cousin Sarah. After her initial anger, Miss Featherstone agrees to his scheme, telling him she's doing so because she admires his Parliamentary record of humanitarian legislation and his reverence for truth. This is the second book in the series but could be read on its own. The characters have plenty of depth & even Cecil is likeable. The story on the whole flows well but does stall a couple of times. I did love the slow burn romance & how Jack reacted to Jane being courted. Whilst this series is about the three Etonian friends I’d like to see Jack's siblings have their HEAs. I look forward to Alex’s story My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read

❤️❤️❤️❤️ 💋 A wonderful, sentimental romance , of an Earl who needs to marry money to save his estate and keep his vow to his dead father , and a plane young miss who is nothing in looks compared to her ravishing cousin. But what they do have us a love of politics, a thirst for truth and reform , and a hidden desire for the one person that completes them , even if it’s not the one they require . I really enjoyed this book and look forward the Alex’s story x I received an advanced copy of this book and chose to submit a review

Good read. Jane is fearful /anxious with her clueless brother (looking to marry Jane off) and his selfish wife, trying to get Jane out of the house. Jack is titled with a homeless estate and clueless about his feelings. Liked that both are intelligent and compassionate; I was disappointed by their immature actions. Standalone in a series. Voluntarily read ARC for honest review.
