Lady Alexandra Hobbs, the daughter of the Duke of Huntley, has intended to marry Lord Owen Monroe since she first glimpsed him from the window of her bedchamber, back when she was just a girl. But the duke has already chosen Alex's infamously spoiled elder sister, Lavinia, for Owen. And now there's no turning back.

Owen has spent most of his bachelor years drinking, gambling, and skirt-chasing. He won't see another pound from his parents, however, until he's engaged to Lavinia. Desperate, he accepts an offer from her innocent and spirited--and absolutely beautiful--sister Alex: She will turn him into a perfectly tamed suitor, and show him how to woo the shrew. But when Alex's true motives come to light, will their bargain lead to recriminations--or to a romance that defies everyone's expectations?

  7. One of my favorite memories of being a mom is the birth of each of my sons. It was so special "meeting" them for the first time.

  8. My mom has always been the very involved mom. She didn't work when we were young, was room leaders, PTA President, Scout leaders, softball coach. You name it, she did it. All our friends always wanted to play at our house because she was the fun mom. Now at 73, she's the fun grandma!

  9. A memory that I have as a parent is the birth of my 6 children and seeing my first grandchild born as well :) They are all precious gifts!

  10. My favorite memory of my mom is when the family went to play mini golf. My mom hit her ball so hard, it flew across the green and into the pond, which was not even on the property. All of us just looked at each other and laughed so hard, especially my mom.

  11. Such wonderful memories, everyone! Thank you for sharing! <3
