All Eliza ever wanted was a chance to feel loved without having it feel as though it was more towards her sisters than herself. However, with a less than dignified brother who had ruined the family name, and an overbearing mother who wants a son-in-law, Eliza's not so sure if she wants to risk giving her heart to another. When a pompous gentleman by the name of Curtis Amberly decides that Eliza's the bride for him, it causes the young woman to doubt her longings. What's more, having to live under the same roof with two gentlemen vying for her heart only causes barriers to be built.  With all of this, Eliza becomes a rose sitting upon a wall; wanted and yet untouched due to her stubborn refusals. Only with the removal of both her thorns and the thorns of a suitor, will she ever decide to love another.

I think Amberly was looking for a woman who is honest and able to speak her mind.
