Lady Bell is a charming regency romance. Williams uses humour, mistaken identities, and a rather sweet take on the regency. The heroine, Arabella, goes to London with her brother and his best friend in order to embark upon a season and hopefully get over a recent dissapointment in love. Along the way the trio stops so that the young men can view a cockfight at an inn. While wandering unescorted through the village, Arabella meets the Earl of Magdalen, a man just as dashing as the fellow she had last been interested in. The Earl mistakes her for a cyprian and makes his interest clear. The rest of the book has some fun moments as she keeps her true identity from him but continues flirting. Very sweet, a few moments of suspense wondering when he'll figure out who she is, and a fair amount of friendly fun between all the main characters. All in all, the story is enjoyable but without any high tension or danger.
