5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book! Definitely keeping this one!, 28 Nov 2011

This review is from: Nearly a Lady (Berkley Sensation) (Mass Market Paperback)
Miss Winnefred Blythe, 26, has had to learn to 'make do' after the death of her parents and the money she'd been promised by a wealthy friend of her father, the Marquess of Englsy, doesn't appear. She's been living with her friend, Miss Lilly Ilestone, in Scotland on a small property, barely making ends meet. One day, a relative of the marquess, Lord Gideon Haverston, appears, hoping to make amends on behalf of him. After much encouragement from Lilly, she agrees to head to London with him (and Lilly), for a season she's never had. Suddenly she has lots of clothes, jewellery, and all of the chocolate she could want. His aunt, Lady Gwen, has agreed to take on Winnefred and Lilly, setting them up in her home on Mayfair. Gideon, however, hopes he can now keep his distance from Winnefred, as he's beginning to fall for her, but his aunt has other ideas and wants him to stay. Over time, they grow closer, but Gideon has no desire for a wife, due his personal problems from the past. Winnefred learns something is bothering him, and vows to learn the truth. But Gideon keeps her at a distance, much to her dismay. Winnefred decides to teach him a lesson by flirting with another man during the ball, much to the annoyance of Gideon. When you finally think they're going to live happily ever after, Gideon blows it, and Winnefred decides to head back to Scotland to the only life she's ever really known and been comfortable with. It's not long before Gideon realises his mistake and chases after her, determined to win her back.

Overall, the book is FANTASTIC! The heroine speaks her mind, hangs out with prisoners and swears, not your typical Regency Lady! The hero is handsome, caring and has his own sad story which makes you love him even more! This is the first book I've read by this author and it won't be the last.

5/5
