Cecilia Sentenell (Ceci to most who know her) is getting ready to go to London with her sick father, Sir Goeffrey Sentenell to partake of the social season. Sir Goeffrey is hoping to find Ceci a husband before he passes away. Ceci has never thought that she would ever go to London to partake of a season, with new beautiful clothes and dancing with handsome men. They start their journey with Lady Rolande and her daughter Hedra. Lady Rolande claimes to have known Sir Goeffrey's wife (who passed away about three years ago) when they were younger. Ceci meets up with the Earl of Arandale and has an instant dislike for him. Meanwhile, the Earl, who has made a promise to his dying father, that he would marry by the age of 30 which is coming up during this year, has asked his solicitor to find him a wife that would fit all his needs. Of course, Ceci was the one that was picked. The Earl writes a letter to Sir Goeffrey for Ceci's hand in marriage, which Ceci knows nothing about. The Earl talks to her at the balls which they are both attending, and dances with her in an attempt to woo her. Ceci's feelings for the Earl does not change. Eventually her father tells Ceci about the Earls proposal of marriage. Ceci still does not want to marry him and so Sir Goeffrey writes a letter declining the proposal as Ceci wants to pick out her own husband. Find out what mysteries and suspense await Ceci before she finally decides to marry. In this book we meet Ceci who is a beautiful woman who can use the sword, handle a gun, keep a set of books and still be a gentle individual. We also meet the Earl of Arandale, who is handsome and somewhat of a rake. His finance died on the day they were to be married and he has been a bitter person since. But does Ceci find a spot in his heart? We also meet her fathers heir Alex Shackel, who has some evil ways about him in order to try and get Ceci to marry him for her fortune. This is the third book of Gloria Gay that I have read. I like this one the best, as she can write with suspense and love in her books and make her characters come alive for me. One can feel the love between Ceci and her father, as his sickness is getting worse.
