Review by sarahemmm
This is the first book by Mary Balogh I have read - suggested by LT members. I am delighted to have found a worthy successor to Georgette Heyer! Ms Balogh has the same understanding of how life really would be in that period; costumes, events, people and scenarios are all coherent and ring true, yet there is the same sparkling sense of fun and witty dialogue. Wonderful!
Review by wyvernfriend
Colonel Lord Aidan Bedwyn never thought that by delivering the news of a fellow officer's death that he would end up married. This was not part of his plan, he had worked out how things were going to be and this was not the plan, only she]'s attractive and interesting and is starting to catch his interest.Miss Eve Morris didn't believe that she wouldn't marry a neighbour, a man who gave her vague promises about marriage, but she's only days away from losing her house, Aidan offers her a way out, a way to keep her misfit family together, where he will not interfere, but the two of them start to be attracted to each other and maybe the terms and conditions could change.Entertaining and light
