From Library Journal
When Miles Prescott's formidable sister, Winifred, descends upon Epping Manor with two eligible women in tow, the widowed earl knows his single days are numbered; but when he ends up being attracted to the sister of the woman everyone expects him to marry, things become a bit more complicated. This delightful, well-written Regency features an irrepressible heroine with a passion for architecture; a proper, still grieving hero who learns to love and laugh again; and a wealth of secondary characters, several of whom deserve stories of their own. Popular Regency writer Hern (A Garden Folly, LJ 11/15/96) lives in San Francisco.AKR
