About the book:
Lady Georgina Hawthorne has worked tirelessly to seal her place as the Incomparable for her debut season. At her first London ball, she hopes to snag the attention of an earl.
With money and business connections, but without impeccable bloodlines, Colin McCrae is invited everywhere but accepted nowhere. When he first encounters the fashionable Lady Georgina, he’s irritated by his attraction to a woman who concerns herself only with status and appearance.
What Colin doesn’t know is that Georgina’s desperate social aspirations are driven by the shameful secret she harbors. Association with Colin McCrae is not part of Georgina’s plan, but as their paths continue to cross, they both must decide if the realization of their dreams is worth the sacrifices they must make.
This very tastefully done regency novel will bring to mind scenes from Jane Austen. Indeed, she is even quoted within the pages of this novel.
In the beginning of the book, I found myself irritated with the main characters, but enjoyed the continuation of the story from the previous book by this author. However, as time went on, they endeared themselves to me with all their quirks and faults.
I found myself wanting to go back to the novel, thinking about it when I was not reading it, and now, that is rare this happens for me. They wormed their way into my hearts and I throughly enjoyed it!
