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?
"This was the kind of sweet, romantic Regency romance I used to love to read. I'm so glad they're coming back - especially by talented authors like Cheryl Bolen. It was fun to watch Lord Slade discovering more facets to the plain Miss Featherstone, to see him falling in love with her, tortured that he was not free to marry someone like her, whom he much preferred over the beautiful heiress. Even though I knew HIS LORDSHIP'S VOW was bound to have a happy ending, things seemed so bleak, and Miss Featherstone seemed so certain to accept the proposal from her Mr. Poppinbotham that I was afraid true love would not prevail. This short novel was well worth $.99, and that factored into my 5-star rating." ~Romantic Reader 98 on Amazon
"This is my first review. Thank you so much for writing a story of ROMANCE. Ms Bolen makes reading about the hero and heroine enjoyable,and romantic. She has made them personable,and intelligent. The people around them are also fun to read about. And thank God, it has none of that erotic sex(or porn),which is so prevalent in the books today. Once I started I had to read it all. I do not need to be more specific about the story. the other reviews say it all. I started reading Ms Heyer's books 30 years ago. I really like your style." ~K.V. Kawamoto on Amazon
