    Good story

    Liked better than the first story in this series. The series focuses on the sister's relationship. Again, I felt to much of this story centered around Imogen instead of Annabel the heroine. After living an impoverished life Annabel had really one qualification for marriage; the suitor must be wealthy. Because of Imogen poor judgement Annabel is now involved in a scandal and forced to marry the poor Scottish Earl of Ardmore. Ewan plans to marry Annabel in his homeland and promises the Duke of Holbrook (Annabel's guardian) that he will maintain her virginity. Throughout their voyage they play to many games that leads to impropriety. The inspiration for this story was based upon a play by Shakespeare with an added twist. Ms. James writing style uses quite a bite of contemporary and historical dialogue to keep the story moving forward. Perhaps, most frustrating were changes to the story line (scene) without using some form of symbol to inform the reader. Overall, lacked in imagination at times, but interesting enough to find out how the remaining sisters will fare in the series.

    wonderful Regency romance

    In 1817 Annabel Essex like her sisters has a weird dowry: racehorses. However, she has no money to support herself let alone several steeds. She decides she needs to marry an amiable wealthy aristocrat so she can stop fretting over poverty. Ewan Ardmore finds himself attracted to Annabel and her dowry would fit nicely with his horse breeding operation. Though she reciprocates his high regard and enjoys playing word games with him Annabel rejects him as a proper suitor as he is as poor as she is. Ewan knows he has found his life partner so he refuses to back off and daringly takes kisses. An incident gives him renewed hope as they head to Scotland to pretend to get married, but he plans to make their vows real. This is a wonderful Regency romance starring two congenial protagonists who belong together except that the feisty independent Annabel worries about how they will survive with both of them poor. The courtship between Annabelle and Ewan seems natural as they play fun word games in concert and he steals kisses, which she treasures as his touch is everything. They make for a fine early nineteenth century romance in which the audience will wonder if Ewan and Annabel will cross the finish line as a team. Harriet Klausner

    Re-Read

    I read this book over two years ago and needed to reread it because I was finally getting around to reading about the Essex girls. I like Annabel's story.
