“I can’t feel my legs,” Gerard said in desperation. “It’s God’s way of saying that you shouldn’t be so tall,” Lord Calvin replied. “Never thought you were one to believe in the Almighty,” Gerard said, running his hand through his hair, and inspecting the environment. “I believe in Jesus, Isis, Buddha, Zeus, Shiva, Apollo, Horus, Oden, Re, and Satan.” “Heavens. Why?” Gerard asked. “Because eventually, I’m bound to be right.” Agnes Forest. Lady Josephina's Secret (Kindle Locations 250-254).
Anyway, Gerard is a gentle soul. He delights in painting and would gladly spend his life doing that. But now that he was the heir to the duchy it was expected that he procures a wife. Calvin was more than happy to assist. Calvin pointed to Lady Josephina and made the introduction between them. Immediately Josephina found common ground talking with Gerard. They found themselves awkwardly talking. But Gerard was trying to make a good impression and was sometimes failing. Calvin tried to be helpful by steering Lady Whitemore away from them. Lady Whitemore was delighted that Gerard was taking an interest in Josephina. She went about trying to learn all that she could about him. When it was clear to her that they would make a good match, she put her plan in action. She left Almacks with Josephina in tow and explained it was so that Gerard, if was really interested, would do something to show his intentions. This frustrated Josephina in the regard that she could not do anything to hasten the acquaintance. Well things snowball from here and the antics between the hero, heroine and the comedic sidekick is comedic. This is definately a must read. You will not be dissapointed. I received an Advanced Readers Copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Just out of mourning, Lord Gerard Sheridan, Marquess of Richmond, heir to the Duke of Bedfordshire has decided to brave Almack's frightening gathering of society with the goal of finding a suitable bride. Tied into knots and feeling like a green school boy, Lord Gerard is at a loss until Lord Calvin Cain introduces him to Lady Josephina.
Lady Josephina's Secret sports an eclectic cast of characters. Each are unique, with some verging on the disturbed. Regardless, each personality contributes to this entertaining and very humorous snapshot of Regency life within it's restrictive society. I wish that both Josephina and Gerard had been a bit stronger. That said, their weaknesses were both endearing and annoying. The comedic element was definitely Lord Cain's inane interactions with all of the characters. Even Josephina's mother was a surprise as she held her own both in her thoughts and deeds.
All in all this is a clean and oddly sweet read that swims upstream against the usual books of this genre.
