Book Description

28 Sep 2012
Customers who enjoy the traditional Regency Romances of Georgette Heyer, Barbara Metzger, and Carla Kelly will enjoy this witty, award-winning Regency romp by New York Times bestselling author Candice Hern. Miss Rosalind Lacey has spent all her 26 years in the country, quietly managing the lives of her widowed father and five younger siblings. When she learns she has contracted the illness that killed her mother, she decides to spend her last few months doing all the things she's never had the time or opportunity to experience. With the help of her worldly and notorious aunt, the simple country miss is transformed into a dashing Town sophisticate who cuts a wide and wild swath through London Society. Since she won't be around to face the consequences of her behavior, Miss Lacey does and says exactly what she pleases, even becoming involved with the infamous rake, Max Davenant. It is an exciting and heady time for the one-time country mouse, until she receives a fateful letter bearing news that turns her glittering new world upside down.

The ballrooms and gaiety of the London Season form a backdrop for this sparkling tale of a young woman who hasn't lived enough, and a man who's lived too much.

"Candice Hern never fails to deliver a well written Regency with quirky, fun characters and a romance that feels genuine to the core." – The Romance Reader

"A delightfully different, thoroughly entertaining romp through Regency England. Unforgettable. Fast-paced. Completely captivating." – Romance Reviews Today

"Thoroughly entertaining, the story wraps around you from the beginning and totally pulls you into its heart." – Heart Rate Reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 13 Sep 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As others have said, this is a lovely story and very well written with good characterisation. You can just imagine yourself right there dressed up in your regency finery and enjoying the London Season alongside Rosalind! A fast paced story - which I could hardly put down so finished it far too quickly. Definitely recommend this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprising! 30 July 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story has an interesting premise and I really enjoyed it. The character of Max resembles Georgette Heyer heroes, so expect understated appeal rather than Adonis. There are a few annoying Americanisms, but Candice Hern knows her subject well enough to forgive the odd language slip. I will definitely look for her other books.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a fantastic and interesting story 1 July 2011
By Nik
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I didn't origainally fancy reading this author as I must admit I usually go for more explicit sexual romances such Liz Carlyle, Sabrina Jeffries and Lisa Kleypas as well as JR Ward but you really dont miss this explicitness with this author. Her stories are beautifully written with wonderful sensual charaters that come alive in her stories which are original and different. All her books are a must read not just this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh what fun! 21 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Goodness me, this was fun! I was recommended this by a friend, and have no regrets at all - interesting story, whipping along at a cracking pace, individual characterisation of all the main characters, and a satisfying ending.

Georgette Heyer ever so slightly raced up.
