An aristocrat and a gardener walk into a bar, and the barman says—never mind. They walked into a shed, and they’re kissing. Oops.
My name is Lady Gabriella Hastings, and there are three things you need to know about me.
One: my idiot brother will inherit the estate I’ve adored my entire life.
Two: my father wants me to marry an idiot who has an estate like this.
Three: my aunt’s goats keep escaping and terrorising the public.
Oh, and I have a huge crush on the gardener.
Except I have absolutely no time to sort my own love life, because I’m too busy moonlighting as an online agony aunt to fix everyone else’s problems.
If only I could stop having inappropriate feelings about Miles Kingsley, the grumpy, bearded gardener of Arrowwood Hall.
He hates me, and I’m not quite sure why. My own horticultural dreams are about to slip through my fingers, and he’s the one person who can help me.
If only he wasn’t such a classist bas—ahem.
But when a storm leaves us stranded at the estate with no power, and one of my assignments means I need his help, and a fancy party forces truths to come to light, there might just be a chance for us after all…
*Please note that Love Language is set in England with English characters and is written in British English.*
The gardener and the lady. This is set in modern-day England which took me a few pages to work out.
Lady Gabriella Hastings wants to learn about gardening. The problem is her father wishes she was looking for a husband. The gardener of their estate, Miles is trying his hardest to stay away from the beautiful upper-class lady, and this family has a few hidden secrets. Can the family be happy with modern life, or will traditions dampen their aspirations?
I really enjoyed this. It’s a little different to Emma’s usually rom-com’s. The village came to life, and I look forward to more books in the series. Love Language is a slow burn romance.
