Frances Hadley has managed her family's estate for years. So why can't she request her own dowry? She'll have to go to London herself and knock some sense into the men interfering in her life. With the nonsense she's dealt with lately, though, there's no way she's going as a woman. A pair of breeches and a quick chop of her red curls, and she'll have much less to worry about . . .Jack Valentine, third son of the famous Duchess of Love, is through being pursued by pushy young ladies. One particularly determined miss has run him out of his own house party. Luckily the inn has one bed left-Jack just has to share with a rather entertaining red-headed youth. Perhaps the two of them should ride to London together. It will make a pleasant escape from his mother's matchmaking melodrama!

After cutting off her long red hair, she’s dressed as a man and is going to get her inheritance one way or another.Being the son of the Duchess of Lo...
2.5 stars. This book had so much promise, but was ruined by what is possibly the worst HR heroine I have ever read. She had zero likable qualities. Often when reading HR, I wonder what the heroine sees in the hero. This time, it was the other way around. He was too good for her.
