Overview

Once Upon A Season. . .

. . .deep in the heart of the country, there lived a pretty young miss with raven tresses, who dreamed of a London debut. But alas, Melissa Harrington's future lays in the hands of her nipfarthing stepmother who thought only of matching up her own two daughters. Worse still, the lively, sweet-natured Melissa had to help the family by posing as servant to her stepsisters when they were launched upon the ton. And thus, it came about that the Harrington "maid" found herself behind the scenes at a society ball, snatching a moment from her menial duties, on a starlit balcony.

Suddenly, there appeared before her a handsome stranger with an eye for beauty and a passion for astronomy. One moment, Melissa was discussing with him the heavenly constellations, the next, she was in his arms for one enchanted waltz. . .and the next, she was in love. But later--when this nonpareil, the Duke of Oakwood, sought out his bewitching, half-glimpsed dance partner--fate was to lead him in a merry dance of mistaken identity, misplaced attentions, and a daring adventure in which only fate could determine the destiny of two hearts. . .

    A Cinderella story with a wonderful twist!

    Indeed, this is a Cinderella story with a wonderful and delightful twist! I enjoyed it very much. The use of Regency verbage was fun, and used in such a way that anyone not familiar with it would be able to understand what was intended. The characters are very well presented and I was able to clearly visualize them as I read. I truely loved this story and look forward to more stories from this expert of the genre. I am so glad that This author was introduced through the Hannah Swensen series...there again, a very delightful twist!
