Fans of the traditional Regency Romances of Georgette Heyer, Barbara Metzger, and Carla Kelly will enjoy this witty romance from award-winning author Candice Hern. Robert, Lord Bradleigh, is a rakish earl with a recently arranged betrothal to a lovely young girl he barely knows. Emily Townsend is an impoverished spinster employed as a companion to his grandmother, the formidable dowager countess. Robert agrees to help his grandmother find a husband for the beautiful Emily. But once he comes to know the charms of Emily, he begins to regret his hasty engagement. This sparkling tale will take you from the Pump Room at Bath to the ballrooms of London as the unexpected and undeniable attraction between Robert and Emily blossoms into something more ... something that could put one of them in danger.

"Candice Hern is a striking talent of superior merit, one whose intelligence, wit, and craftsmanship are as impressive as her elegant romantic sensibility."??Romantic Times… (mais)

Emily Townsend is the paid companion of the dowager Countess Bradleigh. When the dowager's grandson, the Earl of Bradleigh, announces his engagement, the Countess sweeps her household to London to get a good look at the girl. There she finds that Bradleigh is planning on marrying for an heir, not because he has any real affection for his fiancée. To his surprise, the more time he spends with his grandmother's companion Emily, the more he feels for her--and he begins to suspect his engagement is a terrible mistake. Emily, meanwhile, has more suitors than she'd ever dreamed of and a scheming pair of relatives to deal with besides. Her cousin inevitably kidnaps her, Bradleigh goes to rescue her, in so doing sundering his engagement, and they all pair off and live happily ever after.

Workmanlike. There's nothing here I objected to, but also nothing I was excited by. It feels written by rote. ( )

This is a nice little story, but it seemed like a long short story rather than a novel. Candace Hern writes very well, and she presents interesting and entertaining characters, some of them very funny. I just wish she would flesh out the plot a bit more. (I suppose for 99 cents on Amazon, I really shouldn't ask for more, but I think she's truly talented.)

I notice that several reviewers express relief that her novels are so "clean," but I wish they were a bit hotter myself. ( )

I wasn't a big fan of this book. It was predictable and the characters were very bland and boring. It wasn't the worst book I've read, but it was far from the best. ( )

Completely unremarkable. ( )

Who came up with that cover?! Awful. The book is very sweet and romantic. ( )
