She Thinks She's Bought a Compliant Husband... Although Clare Greenough has inherited an unexpected fortune, her money is in the hands of a trustee until she marries-everyone knows a woman is incapable of managing funds. What she needs is an easygoing husband, right away... They're Both in for a Shock She makes a deal with impetuous young James Boleigh, seventh baron Trehearth: they will marry, Clare will get control of her money, and Jamie will get the funds he desperately needs to restore his lands. To stave off ruin, Jamie agrees, believing Clare will soon become a proper, submissive wife. But to expect a serene, passionless marriage was only their first mistake...

"The Bride Insists" by Jane Ashford (2014)
Clare Greenough had been forced into service and had been a governess now for 9 years. One day a solicitor, Everett Billingsley, came to see her to tell her that she had inherited her grandfather's brother's money. There was only one catch...Simon her awful cousin who had inherited everything upon her brother's death which forced her and her mother to leave their home, was to be one of the trustees with Mr. Billingsley being the other.
Clare knew of Simon's greed but it was confirmed when Mr. Billingsley told her that her cousin had written to her great uncle saying he was watching over Clare and that he had argued that he should be left the money.
Clare was fully aware that with Simon in charge of what she could spend, she would get nothing of the money. Mr Billingsley told her that the trust would be dissolved upon her marriage. After thinking about it, she decided her only alternative was to find a husband who would sign an agreement that would allow her to have control over her own money.
James Boleigh, Seventh Baron Trehearth was another client of Everett Billingsley and was to the point of bankruptcy. Should Mr Billingsley introduce him to Miss Greenough?
Could he be the answer to Clare's troubles? Would he sign such an agreement and would he live up to the agreement if he did? What secrets did he have?
Jane Ashford lives up to her name as one of the premier Regency writers with this one. See the power of love evolve. Happy Reading!.
