Third in a historic romance sequence (The Viscount’s Promise, 2018, and many others.) about girls who’ve been
burned in love and the lads who persuade them to take a danger.

Ever since her household was ruined by a nobleman who seduced and
deserted her older sister, Miss Rosalind Merriweather “had been handed round
as a [paid] companion…like a plate of significantly unappetizing meals at a
celebration.” Her newest cost is a painfully shy lady whose rich dad and mom hope to
marry into the the Aristocracy. Rosalind’s sister’s debauchery and subsequent demise
have made our heroine deeply skeptical of London society, particularly of
charming rogues like Sir Tristan Crosby. Rosalind’s makes an attempt to thwart Sir
Tristan’s consideration to her cost deliver them into contact, and he turns into
intrigued by the tart-tongued lady from Staffordshire. Tristan’s upbringing at
the fingers of a merciless father who far favored his half brother has made him really feel
just like the nugatory libertine Rosalind believes him to be. However Tristan has discovered
a secret wellspring of happiness in his skill to make use of his charms to rearrange
appropriate matches for younger women like Rosalind’s cost. Each Rosalind and Tristan
have buried hurts that are slowly revealed as they start to love and belief one
one other beneath their regular buying and selling of barbs. On the identical time, their
rising attraction appears harmful for them each. Britton’s plot is motivated
by an in depth research of the foundations of the matchmaking season in Regency-era London
society, and she or he writes with respect for the refinement of the time interval.
Whereas Rosalind’s stereotyping of all London’s wealthy households could be fatiguing,
she ultimately grows to acknowledge everybody’s humanity: “We’re all like
paper dolls, flat, garbed fastidiously, solely exhibiting what we want for others to
see. However inside we’re books’ price of tales and dramas, heartaches and joys.”

A candy, emotional Regency romance with sufficient simmering ardour
and vigorous, clever dialogue to please followers of the style.
