Free-spirited Lucy Westmore isn't yet a spinster, although she fully intends to be. Fortunately, an eccentric aunt has left her both a diary detailing the secrets to spinsterhood and a cottage in Cornwall. Unfortunately, an insufferable marquess is angling for her prize! Turning Lord Thomas Branston down flat should be easy. So why does this man who won't take no for an answer make Lucy's body and soul sigh yes? Thomas knows the real value of Heathmore Cottage, and he has no intention of letting some silly Society miss get her hands on it. He'll simply have to charm Lucy into selling. But the clever young woman he encounters, first in London, then en route to Cornwall, stands stubbornly on her own two (quite lovely) feet. And now, Thomas can think only of sweeping her off them.

I've tried, and I've tried. But I can't seem to care enough to continue.

There is no real plot, no admirable or even likable personalities to the hero and heroine. It's so banal, with repeated sections. Lucy is ridiculous, and I'm sure the intent was to reform a spoiled girl into maturity, but it's done rather poorly I'd say. And Thomas was just meh. He kept saying how Lucy's reckless nature was admirable etc. but to me, it was annoyingly ignorant. You might chuckle the first couple but it gets really old, really fast. No spark between them to speak of, and the little snippets from the dead aunt's diary were annoying.
