Though this is the second book in a series, it definitely stands alone. This is a wonderful witty Regency romance that has a multi-level plot with Letty needing to decide if love is enough or security is more important. There are lots of characters, all of which are awesome. They are unique and interesting. The villain of the piece is one that isn’t expected. And, while love is in the air, there are a few other characters besides Letty and John who may be feeling it too. I loved the implications and the possibilities. This is a well thought out book and well researched. It flows extremely well and keeps your interest from beginning until the end. At points, you are sure Letty is going to go for security and then again she can’t seem to leave John alone. All in all, this is a really good Regency story.
Letty has fled to Paris to remove herself from society. It wasn’t her fault that John and Lord Granville switched places and Letty fell in love with John. However, there is no way that Letty is marrying a plain no one! But, no one will show interest in her due to this incident. Surely Paris is far enough away for her to find someone. Letty does find someone but what she doesn’t know is he is from the same small town as John. Now, what to do?
