Scarred and lame after a riding accident, shy heiress Aurelia Newbold is resigned to her wallflower status—until a handsome, gallant stranger draws her into a secret waltz and awakens long-buried desires. A year later, a newly confident Aurelia returns to London, hoping to meet her mysterious partner again… only to find that he has since acquired a title, an estate, and a beautiful fiancee. And the lucky lady just happens to be Aurelia’s beloved twin sister.
This is a rerelease of the author’s debut novel. While there is nothing I disliked about the book, I didn’t find it memorable either. The book is lengthy, and while it didn’t drag, it could have been shortened.
The characters are likeable, but I found myself not really caring about any of them. They were too bland, and nothing was interesting about them. The romance was lukewarm at best with no steam whatsoever that I could tell.
While I was underwhelmed by this book and I wouldn’t recommend purchasing it, there are some who enjoy a simple, uncomplicated romance.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
