She is labeled the Wayward Welsh by Peter Norwood, Lord Whitly. For the next six years she hid her true self behind a facade of a boring, proper lady.
She wants to get married and prove that she can be an asset to her husband.
After over 5 years in India, Peter is back in England. He went to India to prove he is not a useless aristocrat and has come back to woo the woman he fell in love with. His first day back he runs into the woman who owns his heart and makes a wager with her that involves a parakett and a kiss.
I really enjoyed this book, a lovely romance with witty dialogue and a wonderful romance.
