It is always such a delight to discover new authors and Ms. Laik with her beautiful Regency voice is one that is very pleasing to this reader's palate.

This was far too reminiscent of old-fashioned quivering virgin meets overpowering lord type novels from years ago. Random actions and emotional whiplash from paragraph to paragraph, much less from page to page. Won't continue with this series.

It is always such a delight to discover new authors and Ms. Laik with her beautiful Regency voice is one that is very pleasing to this reader's palate.

Harriet Vernon was one of several daughters in the Vernon family. Most of the girls were noted for their exceptional beauty, only Harriet was did not follow that particular mold. Harriet's gamine pixyish beauty better complimented her free-spirited nature that sought to travel the world with her namesake rather than marry. Her family had other ideas and were narrowing the field down their picks for this seasons two husband candidates; two contenders that were far from the ideal, like Lord Belden, she'd secretly thought would make a fine husband - IF she were in the market for one.

As fate would have it, several chance meetings put Harriet directly in the path of Lord Beldon. He was certainly in no hurry to marry but Beldon did notice Harriet and contrary to what he wanted he felt a powerful physical attraction even though she looked and acted nothing like the `ideal' wife he'd pictured for himself. After a very passionate kiss that managed to get out of hand, Beldon impulsively asked Harriet to marry him and Harriet still befuddled by the passion he incited said yes!

*** This was an absolutely enchanting love story that felt like a breath of fresh air sparkling with a brace of raciness that most traditional regencies lack. Well researched and written in perfect regency cant the reader will be transported back to the drawing rooms and ballrooms of that long ago glittering period with vivid descriptions that accurately portray this era.

I loved the character of Harriet who will totally delight the reader with her wholesomeness and lack of artifice who was so much in love with Beldon she wanted only the best for him. She would willingly, though it would break her heart, give him up so that he could have the wife he deserved, even if that meant her own younger `diamond of the first water' sister. Beldon was really a love, just totally unaware of what he was really feeling for Harriet. At first lust, but when she gave him the freedom she thought he wanted he finally realized that she was the perfect wife for him. For a debut novel, this is a true jewel to treasure and I highly recommend this book.
