Sweet Ariana Forsythe is planning her wedding to the most eligible bachelor in England, Philip Mornay. Is it wrong to start spending Philip's money before the wedding? There are so many charities that need support. So much good she will be able to do. Soon. Or now? She visits his home to start moving her belongings in, but the servants don't seem to like her much. Why? Plus, someone is holding a grudge against Philip and has made several attempts to abduct Ariana. Can Philip discover who is trying to hurt him and keep Ariana safe?
Linore Rose Burkhart weaves wonderfully complex dramas that make you want to go and read all your Jane Austen books as soon as you close the cover of hers. Her books are filled with a myriad of intriguing characters. I love that Ariana is a girl who isn't afraid to evangelize anyone--even her abductor! And I love reading about Philip's struggle to deal with his betrothed. This was a really fun book to read. I hope that Linore Rose Burkhart has more stories to tell about England 1813. Highly recommended.
