Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p>Once upon a time there were three young ladies who, despite their fortunes, had been on the marriage mart a bit too long. They were known as "the Spinster Heiresses" . . .</p> <p>Miss Cassandra Holwell is too tall, too bookish, and too smart--but she does have money and a father who wants a grand title for her. Cassandra hasn't felt a desire to marry until she meets the sinfully handsome Duke of Camberly, who captures her imagination . . . until Soren York, Earl of Dewsberry and her family's sworn enemy, steps in the way.</p> <p>The Holwells ruined Soren's family, and he's lived on the knife's edge trying to resurrect their fortunes . . . until he considers marrying the Holwell Heiress. Not only would her dowry give him the funds he needs, he has secretly had an eye on the independent-minded bluestocking since they both first realized the differences between men and women.</p> <p>She likes to read; he has no patience for books. She knows little of sex; he is a man of the world and willing to school her. Her family destroyed his; his offer of marriage may be her only salvation.</p> <p>Now Cassandra and Soren must learn to love each other for who they are, not what they are--and the lessons are becoming an exercise in absolute pleasure.</p>

A bluestocking heiress is wooed for her dowry by a man from a family that her father ruined.

Library Journal Review

Years ago, the Holwells brought ruin onto the Yorks, and the families are still feuding. Now Soren York, Earl of Dewsberry, is determined to restore his family's fortunes, but for that he needs money. Wealthy -Cassandra Holwell, a woman he'd known as a young girl and whose land marches with his, is the ideal choice, but Cass resists him at every turn. Then fate takes a hand, and they are caught in an innocent but totally compromising situation. Soren nobly proposes. Cass's options are ruin or her father's fury. An independent bluestocking and an honorable peer find that marriage is more challenging-and ultimately rewarding-than either had imagined. VERDICT Sparkling badinage, unforeseen plot twists, and tender passion make this engaging romance one to savor. Maxwell (If Ever I Should Love You) lives in Virginia. © Copyright 2018.
