    Just One Season in London is a Fun (and good) Read

    "Just One Season in London" uses humor well in this trio of family members out to find a way to recreate the family fortune. When this takes place in Regency London that often means someone is trying to marry for money. True here, too, and the three stories are woven together well. Viscount Ryecroft regrets that he cannot provide a true London season for his sister Sophie, but the family's scant fortune died with their father years ago and the estate he runs is in debt. Sophie and Rye's mother, Lady Miranda, thinks she has a source for those funds in the form of a suitor she did not marry years ago. Marcus Winston is willing, if Miranda will become is mistress. It's an almost unheard of demand, but part of her finds the "friend with benefits" idea enticing. Enter Lady Stone and her young companion, Portia. Lady Stone insists Rye bring his sister and mother to be guests in her London town house on Grosvenor Square. Sophie will have a season and Rye might meet a wealthy young woman to marry. And the fun begins. The sometimes biting humor can be direct or ironic, and there are a couple twists that especially hold your interest. Some writers in this genre feel a need to define the components of a London season and periodically draw you from the story to do so. That is not Michaels' style. She writes so that you can easily pick up the activities and fashions from context. In a way this is most Sophie's story, though you could argue the three stories are even. Young women in Regency romances who "must" marry money sometimes come off as powerless and simply lucky when they find love. Sophie earns it. Michaels makes you want to keep reading and laughing. You'll want to pick up "Just One Season in London."

    Not the same old story!

    Do you love historical romances but feel like youve read hundreds of the same old story? This story is different with a great cast of characters! It was a joy to read! The only thing lacking was the love scenes. I still gave it 5 stars and felt the need to tell you about it! I highly recommend!

    Great Read

    A chance to make a single lasting impression and hopefully garner a proposal for Sophie, an opportunity to become reacquainted with an old beau and gain a promise for Miranda, and a duty to fulfill by finding a willing and necessary heiress for Rye.all they need is Just One Season in London!

    National Bestselling Author Leigh Michaels is well known for historical romances that sweep the reader along for epic adventures. Her characters will have you falling in love right along with them as they search for love in all the right places and manage to find it in the most unexpected places instead. This holds true for Lady Miranda Ryecroft, her son Viscount Ryecroft (Rye) and daughter Miss Sophronia Ryecroft (Sophie).

    The Ryecrofts have lost so much since the death of their father and Miranda's husband. All they have left is land that needs planting, a rambling manor in need of repairs, and their love and devotion to one another. Ms. Michaels has such a poignant way of building the characters up in the minds of the readers, I found myself worrying right along with them, considering all their options and finally rejoicing at how they each find their happily ever after.

    Just One Season in London is a Regency historical and Ms. Michaels does a fantastic job of keeping true to the time period. If you've read this genre before you know that there are strict rules with the Ton. There are those that have money and title that is inherited and then there is the working class. Oftentimes the two cross when a member of the Ton marries down or one from the working class marries up. Both situations are highly frowned upon because it mixes "bad blood" either way. There is an underlying story about class distinction in Ms. Michael's story that illustrates this outdated school of thought and the benefits of simply not caring.

    Also, I must mention that Ms. Michaels uses a POV technique that I've not often seen and is difficult to pull off without confusing the reader. Within the pages of this novel the reader is treated to knowing what is going on with each character simultaneously in any given situation. It doesn't come off as head hopping so much as a single continuing story where the directions and decisions made by Miranda, Rye and Sophie converge to produce a single fantastic journey.

    I laughed, I sighed and I did my very best to steer the charismatic Ryecroft family in the right direction. Lucky for them, Ms. Michaels had their stories all planned out and it was terrific to sit back and watch. If beautiful settings, clever dialogue and heartwarming love stories are what you're in the mood for then Just One Season in London is a true can't miss. Move it to the top of you TBR, you won't be sorry!
