It’s the 1800’s and Ariel Genevieve Garrison, a spirited English beauty, knew what she was after when early one April evening she departed the aging manor where she lived in favor of losing herself amongst the still serenity that embodied the flower-shrouded meadows nearby. She knew that by partaking in the little endeavor she was likely chancing her father’s anger…a rather usual turn of events. What she never expected was the dark stranger, whose mocking laughter cut through her evening, destroying her requisite peace.
Jason Rutherford, Duke of Thornfield, had a habit of taking life for granted and this incident wasn’t much different. Ariel agrees to take a ride with him on another day. Upon returning home, however, she instantly receives the surprise of her life. Not only is her father furious, he is also prepared with a harsh announcement. She is about to be married to a rich nobleman whether she wants to or not.
Jason and Ariel land in the midst of a startling misconception much closer to home than either believes possible. The only way to resolve the matter is to work together.
Almost Wonderful is the story of strength, love, and of finding happiness in the last place one would expect.
