Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
When his headstrong young ward flees from an arranged marriage and seeks shelter in the country house of the notorious feminist Hester Blayne, Charles Trent, Earl of Bythorne, is furious. But Hester is not at all what he expected; and when she ends up in the earl's London townhouse, skillfully guiding Chloe through the Season, it is only a matter of time before Hester and Thorne come to the startling conclusion that they have fallen in love. With her typical wit and humor, Barbour (Step in Time, Signet, 1996) has penned a delightful, well-written Regency featuring a pair of engaging protagonists (who both reform), a well-drawn group of secondary characters, and an interesting element of Regency feminism. Barbour lives in Black Hawk, South Dakota.
