Format: Mass Market Paperback
Georgiana Hartley returns to England after the death of her painter father. Arriving to find herself in an unsuitable situation, Goergiana escapes and finds herself asking the advice of her neighbour, Dominic Ridgely. The viscount is more than helpful, sending Georgiana to his sister and brother in law in London. Although no pauper, Georgiana intends to find a position as a governess or companion to support herself. Dominic’s sister Bella instantly perceives that Georgiana’s prospects would be much improved by Dominic’s suggestion of a season in London. Bella is reluctantly in London with husband Arthur due to Arthur’s business connections, not for the delights of the season. Dominic and Arthur, each of whom love Bella and want her happiness, are delighted to sponsor Georgiana, even if they have to hide from Georgiana herself that is what they are doing. But when Dominic arrives in London to visit his sister and truly ‘sees’ Georgiana as a woman for the first time (having previously automatically provided a ‘too young’ filter), he begins to fall for her. And thus begins his plan to seduce her carefully, within the bounds set by society so that no taint or doubt can cast by either Georgiana or the ton.
Georgiana is young and innocent, although more assured than most her age due to her exposure to the Italian aristocracy from a young age. She is confused at Dominic’s attentions turn to her, as he displays none of the fire and feeling usual amongst the Italians. She creates various reasons for Dominic’s objective interest in her, objections which Dominic has to overcome only to have another replace it.
Dominic and Georgaina are an appealing couple, and the romance that Laurens creates for them is a sweet, slow one.

having read this after "Four In Hand" was a bit of a disappointment. didnt have any of the humour, excitement and enjoyability of the previous book. between georgiana and dominic there is chemistry and their story is interesting but it could have been so much more using the dastardly evil cousin to more effect. dont be put off as this is one of her early books and doesnt reflect of her overall writing.

A well written Regency romance, not as fast paced as her more recent books, but a pleasure to read.

Another great book, with all the wonderful Regency ambience and storyline that Stephanie Laurens manages to produce. Hard to put down - even to recharge my kindle!
