The story is based on the romance of Harry ("Bertie") Haversham and Mira Crenshaw. (If you have read previous works by Ashworth, it is fun to see these characters are the children of the couples married in "Miss Delacourt Speaks Her Mind" and "Miss Delacourt Has Her Day.") Harry is working undercover for the Queen and has put on a fake persona of a fopp (now going by the name of Bertie), much to the surprise of Mira and her family who have known him since childhood. Mira has loved Harry since her youth, but is confused by this change. And her parents question whether or not to allow Mira and Harry to Court.
One of my favorite parts of the book include Harry's mother's antics--her "understated" soiree made me laugh out loud. Ashworth's creativity here shines.
This is a fun, clean (although there are a few good kissing scenes) regency romance. I look forward to more of Ashworth's books in the future. She is a reliable favorite author!
No sexual situations to offend any readers
I actually liked the heroine quite a bit, and the couple's devotion to their childhood relationship blossoming into more mature love is appealing and touching. There were things about this book that I liked and disliked, it was an ok read.
** Clean romance with nothing beyond kissing.
Harry is on a special mission for the government. But, at times he shares information with people who do not seem very able to keep silent.
I am a huge fan of historical romance stories. For this one, I did not feel my normal enjoyment.
I felt there was too much confusion and too many events that did not receive satisfactory explanations.
I wanted to like this book very much. It just did not do it for me.
The writing was well done. The characters were interesting but at times too interesting for their own good. I will look for another story by Ms Ashworth and hope for a better outcome.
At the risk of offending those who liked this book, I did not like it for the following reasons: the plot was weak and convoluted; the characters were just plain weird, not to mention the un-Victorian-like behavior (although the dialogue was in keeping with the period); the excessive musings waffled between confusing and boring; the promised cloak and dagger fell short; the attempt at humor lacked timing; the ending was abrupt and unsatisfying.
Lastly, I was pleased that this is a clean (free of explicit sex and vulgar language) book that might be appreciated more by a different reader. I truly hope so because I hate to not like a book.
This story of Mira and Harry is charming and fun-filled with the all the characters of the previous books returning except the senior members(Grandaunt Regina and the older Duke) who have died. This story is set many years in the future (20-25 years as an estimate) and follows the youngest child and only daughter (Miranda) of Lady Ginny Crawford and Lord Anthony Crawford as she has her first and only season in London. It is great to Gin and Anthony again and still in as much love as they were in the previous books.
If you are looking for sexy scenes or naughty writing go somewhere else because you will not find any of that in this author's books which is so refreshing.
