Unable to read or write, an earl discovers love in the last place he expects to find it-within the embrace of a brilliant woman-in this sexy, irresistible novel from USA Today bestselling author Bronwen Evans. What's an earl to do? The Earl of Argyle has died suddenly, leaving his brother Guy Neville at a complete loss. The dull-witted second son, as his father used to call him, Guy is now responsible for the estate and his brother's seat in the House of Lords. Shamed by an inability to read or write, his distress is multiplied by an inquiry from a dyed-in-the-wool bluestocking who wishes to use the Argyle library and study a rare plant on the estate. Guy's first instinct is to decline her request-until he catches a glimpse of Miss Abigail Pinehurst. How's a girl to behave? Abigail cares for only one thing: plants. She is unconcerned about how she looks, what she wears, or the impression she makes on men. An orphan who turned to books for solace in a miserly, cruel institution, she now makes her living illustrating the greenery she adores. Lord Argyle, in fact, with his uncanny memory and chiseled features, is the first man to capture her attention-a ridiculous distraction since he is so far above her station. But her unreasonable heart has a mind of its own.
