Anything but a typical aristocrat, young Baroness Marie-Louise is not afraid to roll up her sleeves and get to work, especially when it comes to saving her ancestral estate. Determined to shake loose the shackles of propriety and gain the warm family life her upbringing denied her, she has vowed to marry a man of lower rank. Blue-bloods need not apply.
But when she is forced to turn to a childhood friend for assistance, the handsome, debonair count may prove a temptation impossible to resist. Marie-Louise soon finds herself caught between the comfort of a middle-class doctor and the passion of a nobleman, with the future of her childhood home at stake.

Didi Lawson exchanged her town car for a pick-up truck and learned to operate a tractor when she and her husband moved from Arizona to a farm in Missouri where she now weaves her tales. Her love for writing started early in life when she entertained her friends with her stories, won prizes for her essays in high school, and wrote road shows and poems for the youth group in her church.
She enjoys the outdoors, her children and ten grandchildren, and keeps an active social calendar.

This is a fun, well-written novel, taking place in Germany. German characters and setting make this novel enjoyable and different. Filled with mishaps, adventure, relationships, and romance, Didi Lawson’s first novel is a hit. Her characters are well developed and easy to relate to. The aristocratic point of view is both intriguing and entertaining, as Lawson shows how Marie-Louise attempts to act her part as baroness while adapting to the new and modern world. I would recommend this novel to any historical romance reader.
