This is not the same old Regencies with so much of the story being... The ton... Duke... Earl... Duchess... Marquess... It's something a bit different and I LOVED it.

Excellent book, the story is so engrossing, love the characters. You can so imagine the setting with the wonderful descriptions, has characters from previous books and that is great. You are really connected to them. Garwood is one of my favorite authors, she really makes the story come alive. A must read don't miss book.
