Neither character was super-human but very real and passionate. I liked how both Lucy and Nick had to struggle with their personal beliefs before they could ever make any true commitment to each other. And Yes Lucy was beautiful but in this book you felt her inner beauty far surpassed her physical beauty...and quite frankly it was the same with Nick... These two were so meant for each other, how could you not have a happy ending...?
Beth I think your first book ROCKS! And I look forward to the next. You definitely have a very promising career ahead of you!
Lucy does not want Nick's involvement in her troubles, but he cannot help but intercede when two thugs accost her. Crispin sees the whole thing from his hiding place and realizes that neither aristocrat knows that the other is also part of the nobility. Unable to resist matchmaking, Crispin decides the hero and lady needing rescue are perfect for his machinations.
This adult Regency version of Cinderella is an amusing historical due to the antics of the cast including a precocious pug. The humorous plot employs an undertone of serious issues debated between Lucy (women's suffrage) and Nick (the Locke monarchy contract). Beth Petrillo debuts with a wild, wacky, witty winner that hopefully will have a follow-up perhaps in 1850 Santadorra where women vote and the son of the this lead couple is a thirtyish prince.
