Lily Mine by Annabel Joseph

Lily MineLily Mine by Annabel Joseph
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Raised as a gardeners daughter, Lily was thrown out of her family when the families son took liberties she had not wished upon herself but had no choice in the matter. Finding herself on the road to Lilyvale Manor, Lily is hoping to find a position as a gardener with goals in mind to live her life proudly instead of a less desirable path.

Lord Ashbourne is not sure what to think of the woman before him, her uncanny resemblance to the woman who was supposed to be his wife disturbs him, but their is a genuine quality to her that has him asking for her help. In order to protect the sister of his fiancee who had already married a commoner before wedding him, he has to pull of the charade of them nestled at home getting used to the idea of being married until she comes back. With Lily in his home, he could stave off rumors until the matter is settled. However, with each day she pretends to be his wife he finds himself questioning his loyalties and Lily is falling in love with the one man she cannot have.

I thought this was a wonderful story, liked Lily a lot. She is inquisitive and although in the beginning worried about the deception of pretending to be his wife, Lord Ashbourne is always the gentleman with her, never asking for anything more than she can give. I liked that they took their time and Lily still stayed true to who she was.
