This is rather a sweet story about childhood friends being "engaged" by their parents after one of their escapades goes awry. The h is a beautiful heiress who is forced to go into London after reading about her engagement in the papers. The H spends most of his time in London and is also alarmed when he reads about their engagement. The main characters are good friends who try to work out a respectable way to end their engagement. Thrown into the mix is the H's sister, who the h is staying with but she is going through marriage difficulties. The 'villain' steals the show in my opinion and I realised afterwards that he is the H for the next book "The Fortune Hunter". I actually read that book first and loved it. I enjoyed this story and the fact that it was clean.
Oh, and I caught so many Heyer-references which made me smile and squeal throughout the book. Seriously guys, the Marquis of Alverstroke bringing out his beautiful cousin?!?! Plus, Tish and Robert drew so many parallels with the side couple in The Black Moth and These Old Shades that I *instantly* realized how it was all going down. Truthfully, I have to say that Heyer does it so much better in terms of writing and style, but I guess in the wake of such greatness Diane Farr is reasonably good, too.
It was worth the time and the money, and I don't regret it a bit, but do take the time to read a Heyer novel if you find yourself enjoying this regency.
On her part, Chloe is beginning to look at Gil as more than an old pal as well, but doesn't believe he reciprocates, so she sets about trying to help her friend--Gil's somewhat addlepated sister--save her marriage. Tish has taken up with one of the smoothest rakes around in an attempt to make her husband jealous, but only succeeds in driving the two of them further apart. In an attempt to prove the rake's true character to her friend, Chloe flirts with him herself, but finds herself way out of her league with this practiced seducer.
In the end, it is up to Gil and Tish's very wise mother to set things to rights with these two troubled pairs. A delightful Regency romp for anyone with a romantic soul.
I did love the deus ex machina nature of Lady Gilliland. She reminded me of the father who appears in several Loretta Chase books and serves as a secret matchmaker for each of his sons. A really delightful bit of humor and showing that the older generation knows better.

I enjoyed this book. The story was well thought out and the story line was easy to follow. The author drew the author into the story.Read more
