...secrets and scandals

Charming story about a young woman who sets about to right a wrong, find the cad who'd stolen her inheritance. Along the way she is captivated by, and captures the attention of, a charming young viscount. Phineas Betcham, Viscount Fenhurst, is determined not to marry. His maman has determined otherwise. Penelope Rosebery has no interest in marriage. She's on a quest.
I am still puzzling over how two young woman rescued from the highway by a delightfully generous dowager end up in said rescuer's home having an entire wardrobe provided for them, and even dancing lessons for younger lady, Miss Aubry. Bit of a stretch, even through Phineas ' maman is a tad eccentric, or maybe she plays a deeper game than at first glance.
The continual by play between maman's parrot and the butler. Is amusing. Certainly the novel has a couple of endearing idiosyncrasies despite my quandary.

A gentleman by day... Phineas Betcham, Viscount Fenhurst is one of the country's most eligible bachelors...which - to the heartbreak of each season's new debutantes - is the way he intends to keep it. Because the broodingly handsome Viscount has vowed to keep emotions out of the bedchamber. And he is a man who always stays true to his word. So when Penelope Rosebery arrives at his home, impoverished and in need of help, Phin is every inch the gentleman. But, beneath the surface, Penelope stirs a protective and passionate instinct within him. With her untamed beauty and lack of social ties, she's something of a wildflower, delicate, spontaneous, and rare. And before long, Phineas finds himself tempted to abandon his rulebook...and leave etiquette behind until daybreak.… (more)
