A regency set romance, I thoroughly enjoy this time period and love books where the heroine is smart and capable of saving her sister from the clutches of an earl intent on revenge. Astrid is set on saving her sister from being forced to marry a man who she "slighted" years prior and keep her greedy uncle from possessing the fortune left to her and her sister by their parents when they died. Astrid is a very strong-willed character from a time where women are "supposed" to be timid. I love the fake marriage trope and that seems to be where this story is going, along with a hate to love romance, which is also one of my favorites. I wish we were introduced to the "Beast" before this sampler had ended!
