Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Alistair Carsington -- wounded Waterloo hero, third son of the Earl of Hargate, and a dismal judge of female character -- is commanded by his father to find a way to be self-supporting within the next six months (either by finding an occupation or winning an heiress) or risk impoverishing his younger brothers. He then heads for an isolated corner of Derbyshire to see a botanist about a canal and is confronted with the one thing he can't resist: a beautiful, desirable woman. On the other hand, Mirabel Oldridge, intelligent, independent, if rather sartorially challenged, has enough to deal with in managing the estate of her plant-obsessed father and isn't about to let a charming dandy, however heroic and handsome, distract her."--Library Journal.
