Janice Preston spins a fairytale to melt any Regency lover's heart.
Rosalind is nowhere near a docile young miss making her debut in London society. She is a mature woman used to taking charge. Watching her deal with her feelings was an absolute treat. Getting glimpses into Leo's reasoning’s and emotions was delightful. Watching these two who are both lying to each other trying to resolve their attraction was beautiful. I didn't think I could enjoy the story more. But when the setting and location changed I was happier with the outcome than I can describe.
Each and every supporting character was intriguing. All the way from those considered villains and background support to those I cannot help but wish will make their own appearances as story leads as the series continues. This was just the type of love story I was looking for when I picked it out. I enjoyed my escape from everyday life and it left me feeling happy and optimistic.
