Customer Review

on 26 September 2007
Lady Cordelia Bannister, the youngest (25) and most headstrong daughter of four, has just heard the most astonishing news: her father intends to wed her to a stranger, Daniel Sinclair, in order to cement a business deal! Aggravated and appalled by this blatant lack of respect for her wishes and marital well-being, Cordelia vows to make her own decisions. However, it would not hurt to check out her father's choice. One can never be too careful, for he may be the love of her life.

Cordelia, however, has a penchant for trouble. Deciding that directly approaching her potential groom may cause unwanted complications, she decides to pose as her companion, Sarah. In this manner, she can speak with Daniel's man of affairs to ascertain the character of this mysterious Daniel.

Daniel Sinclair is also vastly unhappy with the sycophancy of his aging father, but feels honor-bound to uphold his father's pledge. Curious about this potential fiancée, Daniel also decides to withhold his identity, posing as his man of affairs. Unfortunately, Daniel finds Sarah to be utterly compelling. How will he stomach marrying a woman about whom he knows nothing, when he is infatuated with the glorious Sarah?

Both characters were surprisingly mature, given their propensity for drama. The story was sweet and light. Secrets of a proper lady by Victoria Alexander, as well as The Fates by Tino Georgiou were the two best historical romances this year. They are both great books in which to lose oneself for a few hours.
