Honey discovers that she actually isn't averse to dressing up and playing the reasonably demure miss when she realises that the ton actually consider her a beauty. In any case she wants to get the better of Lord Alistair Stewart who always seems to be rescuing her from scrapes and there's the charming Lord Channington who seems very interested in her.
This is an entertaining romp of a story where an engaging heroine strives to be what the world thinks she should be. I liked Honey - and wanted things to work out well for her. The dialogue and the situations Honey gets herself into are frequently amusing and not always predictable. If you want a light hearted book to curl up with on a cold winter's afternoon this may well fill the bill.
Very shortly a reluctant Honey is on her way to London to the Marriage Mart where she will live with and be chaperoned by her Aunt Canon - with instructions by Sir Edward that Honey is to be given a makeover - clothing, style, manners. In short Aunt Canon must turn Honey into a lady.
Funny stuff happens en route to London, where Honey travels with three male servants, having no female relative or companion in attendance. Honey has a couple of escapades which throw her into the path of none other than Lord Alastair Stewart, confirmed bachelor and man about town. This sets the reader up for the one relationship that will be of major consideration in the storyline.
For indeed, after having bailed Honey out of a couple of sticky situations on the way to London, Lord Alastair is done with her and looks forward to never seeing her again - well, sort of. But, of course that will not happen because when Honey inadvertently winds up attending a hanging, Alastair is called upon to rescue her once again. Honestly, some of these escapades are simply over the top.
Once Honey has had "the makeover" she takes the bloods in London by storm, including one very disreputable fellow who is known to be a "ruiner of virgins" but of course Honey is clueless about his intentions and doesn't believe Alistair when he attempts to dial her into the truth. Lord Alastair seems to be "doomed" to tangle and wrangle in Honey's life and although there is a big misunderstanding toward the end, everything comes about even as we knew it would. Very entertaining story. I do love me some stories about hoydens.
