"Stella Hobhouse is a brilliant rider, stalwart friend, skilled sketch artist-and completely overlooked. Her outmodish gray hair makes her invisible to London society. Combined with her brother's pious restrictions and her dwindling inheritance, Stella ison the verge of a lifetime marooned in Derbyshire as a spinster. Unless she does something drastic...like posing for a daring new style of portrait by the only man who's ever really seen her. Aspiring painter Edward "Teddy" Hayes knows true beauty when he sees it. He would never ask Stella to risk her reputation as an artist's model but in the five years since a virulent bout of scarlet fever left him partially paralyzed, Teddy has learned to heed good fortune when he finds it. He'll do anything to persuade his muse to pose for him, even if he must offer her a marriage of convenience. After all, though Teddy has yearned to trace Stella's luminous beauty on canvas since their chance meeting, her heart is what he truly aches to capture..."--… (mais)

I received a copy of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley.

This was a romance between Stella, whose hair is prematurely grey and who is unwelcome at home since her brother is about to marry, and Teddy, who is a painter desperate to have Stella and her beautiful hair sit as a model for him. I thought the romance was sweet, but other things worked less well for me. Mainly there wasn't much by way of plot - not a lot really happened. There were fairly regular instances of anachronistic language and big chunks of information now and then, for example about wheelchairs. Finally many many characters from the author's other books popped up or were referred to constantly which slowed the plot down even more.

Still, a pleasant read and a gentle romance. ( )

Finally, Stella's story! There are some really hard parts, seeing the reality of patriarchal authority, but I really enjoyed seeing Stella come through and into her own. I also loved the parallels in her and Teddy's story -- where through love (in one case) and disapproval (in the other), they are both held powerless and must fight their way free. Really enjoyed the exploration into early forms of wheelchairs and into the struggles of the early impressionist painters. It continues to be a series that expands and deepens my understanding of the time period, with a solid love story at the center.
