Overview

Banished and disowned for saving a stranger's life.
In Regency England, lineage and vouchers to Almack's are everything, but Pamela Clarkdale has neither. After her father casts her out, she considers herself fortunate to have obtained a position as a companion to an elderly widow.
Kitt Covington has sworn off Almack's and marriage. Why attend one when he has no interest in the other? Guilt, however, is a powerful motivator. Knowing he caused Pamela to be thrown out of her home, he proposes a sham betrothal between them to ease his conscience.
Kitt's offer is tempting and Pamela agrees, with the caveat that the betrothal will disappear at the end of the season. But not only is Pamela refused vouchers to Almack's, her family is scheming to destroy her to protect a secret she doesn't realize she knows. When the twenty-year-old web of lies and deceit begins to unravel, will Pamela and Kitt discover that Almack's isn't really that important after all?

I just discovered this book. What a wonderful story! Pamela is not your typical Regency miss - she's been mistreated by her family and doesn't know why. Kitt, on the other hand, is a typical Regency lord with enough baggage to help you understand - but even he doesn't know the truth. All in all a great read. I will try more of Ms. Patrick's books.
