McLean provides a thoroughly researched romantic tale in her continuing American heiresses invade the 1880 Regency era. While I wished it was a little longer, McLean weaves a romantic tale sweeping across England.

From the inside cover

To Adele Wilson the answer is clear: of course not! She has seen her two sisters dragged through scandal and heartbreak (not to mention every ballroom in London) to find the husbands of their dreams. Thats why she said yes to the first British lord who requested her hand. And why shouldnt she marry him? He is kind, honest, and not sentimental in the least. Unlike his wilder, taller, more mysterious cousin Damien Renshaw, Baron Alcester. Ignoring Damien altogether would be easy if he were the sort of man intent on seducing his cousins betrothed. But he is clearly trying to resist her, and his suddenly proper behavior only makes him more tempting to the usually well-behaved Adele.

Indeed, Damien appears to be bringing out another side of Adele, a heady, passionate, exhilarating side. It seems that fate is contriving to teach her-against her best intentions-exactly what this love nonsense is all about
