This is the fourth Lisa Kleypas book that I have read, most of which were her earlier works, which so far seem to be better than the more recent books. Lady Sophia (a bit pedantic of me, but in one of her other book's, Lisa's heroine points out to the hero that children of Viscounts do not have a courtesy title) goes to London to try to get revenge for her brother's death at the hand of Sir Ross Cannon. Very engaging characters - although Sir Ross is very moral and unyielding, he softens up under Sophia's influence, but not in an improbable way. nick Gentry is introduced to the scene, and he gets his own book later on. Another interesting character. I thoroughly enjoyed the story from beginning to end.
