A delicious Regency set romance
on 21 December 2012
This is a very enjoyable, pacy novel,with a regency setting, with a hero and heroine to love. Lucy Sinclair, the Cinderella figure in this story, is intelligent and brave and the best of company, but without material fortune. She is plagued with a silly stepmother and a vain and materialistic younger stepsister, whose fortune makes her prey to the wicked nobleman Lord Sneyd, and leads both sisters into danger. The handsome and courageous hero, the Viscount Devlyn, finds in Lucy his perfect match, her wit and intelligence proving a foil for his own. How they navigate misunderstanding and danger to find one another drives on this very agreeable historical romance, which has Elizabeth Hanbury's trademarks of wonderful period detail and the atmosphere and language to match.
