This is the last in the House for a Season series and features the owner of 67 Clarges Street, the Duke of Pelham. Will his unscrupulous agent, Palmer, meet his comeuppance and will the servants led by John Rainbird the butler achieve their aim? Jenny Sutherland, vain and pretty, has already met and disliked the Duke at a country assembly and needs to learn that beauty is not everything. Her aunt, Lady Letitia, brings her to London to stay with a friend in Clarges Street, a few doors away from the Duke. Can both Jenny and Letitia achieve happiness?
In a fitting end to the series, loose ends are tied up and everyone - who is deserving of one - has a happy ending. But it may not be the type of happy ending they were expecting. I enjoyed this fast paced romp and it makes good light reading where the wicked are punished in suitable ways and the relatively good find happiness.
I like the way the characters of the servants are developed in this series. In most Regency romances servants only appear where they are absolutely necessary to the plot but here the servants are an integral part of the series. They are characters in their own right. Tenants come and go but the servants remain constant helping to overcome the house's reputation of foisting bad luck on the tenants.
If you want something a bit different in the way of Regency romances with plenty of humour thrown in then try this series of six books. They are best read in the order in which they are published but can be read as standalone novels. The first one in the series is The Miser of Mayfair: The House for a Season, Book 01 (A House for the Season)
