The story follows two sisters who have rejected several good suitors after being admitted into society. One sister, Sophia, has a Scarlett O'Hara vision of a man who is nothing but a bully and a jerk. She thinks she's in love with him until something happens that leads her to the arms of a better man. The other sister, Julia, has a problem giving her heart away. I think Ashlyn gives us enough of a description of her mother's character to understand why a dramatic event in Julia's childhood made her afraid of love. Their parents aren't in the best financial shape, so their mother is anxious to get them married off. Like all families, the parents have secrets that come out in the course of the rocky love lives of the two sisters. Ashlyn lets us see enough of the mother and father to feel some sympathy for them. The male love interests are a delight. I found myself rooting for both Benedict and Rufus from the start.
The story is fun, the pacing is good, and it's nice to read a sex scene that you don't regret reading.
