Giselle de Marginy is a very headstrong princess, bound and determined to get what she wants: a chance to become Keeper of the Castle of Carramer. However, according to the country's charter, she only stands a chance if she marries. Bryce Laws has recently arrived at the castle to take up the job of Royal Park Ranger with his lovely daughter Amanda. The widowed father takes this chance to attempt to heal both their hearts after the death of his wife Yvette two years before.

Giselle endears herself to the grieving family by showing an interest in Amanda's drawing. What starts out as simple interest turns out to be undeniable attraction when Giselle meets Bryce at a masked ball one night at the castle. Both Bryce and Giselle agree to a marriage of convenience to benefit the both of them. Although such a marriage would allow Bryce to find a mother for his daughter, and Giselle the position which she craves, is a marriage of convenience truly their hearts' desire? I give this romance a B+!

B+! - (89-94%)

May you read well and often
