Nicely written and with a bunch of lively characters, debut author Clark's tale engages the reader in a merry chase between a charming English lord and
a spirited young woman in the game
of matrimony.

Charming, wealthy and eligible, Trevor Caldwell, the Earl of Huntwick, isn't interested in being married until he meets the spirited Grace Ackerly.

Grace feels the same way about marriage, and she leads Trevor on a merry chase. In turn, he throws her life upside down and sets out to prove to her that they belong together. When Grace finally realizes that she cares for him, will it be too late for them to put aside the past and start anew? (Leisure, Nov., 336 pp., $6.99)
