Theodora Wooton-Devereux's parents decide that it's time for her (and them) to take a break from ambassadorship and exploring foreign cities to go to London for her to have a Season. There she falls for Nicholas Farington. However there are secrets in her past that will affect their future happiness. Can he forgive her blood to catch love or will the taint of her past destroy her future.

Look, it's a romance and you probably know the results but the path is interesting and the interplay fun and the way in which the characters thoughts follow their speech is quite charming.

Fun, light romance. ( )

Unfortunately, although I enjoyed the first half of this novel, the rest did not live up to my expectations.

The heroine was an interesting character with an unusual background in foreign courts. The hero was attractive and all that was good and proper, just waiting for our outrageous heroine to enliven his life a little.

Spoilers ahead.

However, for a man so aware of his duty, it was incongruous for the hero to allow the heroine to stay for weeks at his home unchaperoned (her maid/companion didn't even dine with them). Worse, he slept with her and didn't seem to consider the possibility of pregnancy and the need to at least set a date for the wedding.

I was baffled that no one would tell the heroine what scandal attached to her name. It made no sense to drive her into the hands of the villain to discover the "truth".

The fact that the other sister seemed to be in a position to defend the heroine was also a bit odd since all we could really accuse the heroine of, was of being related to her spokeswoman-sister. ( )
