About The Nabob’s Daughter
She’ll do anything to escape an arranged marriage. He’ll do anything to help her.
Honora Crauford relishes her life in India. So when her father informs her of his latest business transaction—marrying her off to a bankrupt nobleman in England—her only hope for returning home is to convince her betrothed, by whatever antics necessary, that a marriage to her comes at a cost that not even the greatest fortune can justify.
Graham Whitworth can hardly believe his wretched luck. It seems the only way to save his family’s insolvent estate is to comply with his father’s demands and marry the extremely wealthy, but utterly ridiculous, nabob’s daughter. But when Honora missteps, Graham discerns her farce and begins to see who she truly is—a most impressive lady. A lady likely capable of fixing his family’s financial troubles.
Realizing they both desire freedom, Graham and Honora join forces to restore the Whitworth estate and return Honora to her beloved India. But sometimes love has its own agenda, and the revoking of a once undesirable arrangement may just prove to be the greatest sacrifice of all.
There are not many Regency romance books that make you laugh out loud. This one by Jess Heileman does just that. And it does it in the most fantastic way. I can not tell you just how much I loved everything about this book. You’ll just have to go grab your own copy and read it for yourself.
Honora was the main reason for my laughter in this book. She is the daughter of an English business man living in India. He decides she will marry in England and sends her to the Whitworth’s home to marry their son to fix the family’s finances. This is when she concocts a plan. And she wastes no time putting her plan into action. I laughed so hard at Honora’s antics. Yet, her antics didn’t make her happy. And I loved the way she redeems herself in the end.
I also loved Graham. It was great that the reader gets to see the story through both of their eyes. I loved his unselfishness. Knowing that even though he loves her, he can’t force Honora to stay.
This book is one of my very favorites I’ve read this year. I’m hoping for more books by this author soon!
I was sent an e-copy of The Nabob’s Daughter as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.
