Gwendeline Gregory has been left destitute after the death of her parents. Alex St. Audley, Earl of Merryn intended to rescue a child and is astounded to find a beautiful young woman. He convinces her to travel to London with his eccentric mother to “thank” her mysterious benefactors.
This was a convoluted plot with several kidnappings and scandals that did little to enliven the bland characters. The plot plodded along slowly and the romance was as good as non-existent.
With so many better historical romances out there I strongly advise you to read one of them. As a side note, this book is a reissue from the 1980’s with a different title so readers may feel caught out by this as it is not mentioned in the blurb.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. For more reviews please visit my blog:
