Overview

This is an original, never-before-published Regency short story of approximately 12,000 words. Fans of the traditional Regency romances of Georgette Heyer, Barbara Metzger, and Carla Kelly will enjoy this story of a highborn bride about to embark on an important arranged marriage. Before sacrificing herself on the altar of duty, Lady Ann decides to experience one last day of unchaperoned fun. Her attempted escape, however, appears to be foiled when she gets stuck in a tree. She is fortunate to be rescued by a gallant gentleman, who then accompanies her on a most excellent adventure. When she finds herself falling in love with her handsome rescuer, Lady Ann must now face an arranged marriage that not only tests her sense of duty. It might also break her heart.

"Candice Hern is a striking talent of superior merit, one whose intelligence, wit, and craftsmanship are as impressive as her elegant romantic sensibility."

Such a sweet story. I wish it were a full-length book! The characters were so nice. It was a great, quick read. I recommend it highly.

A freindship that develops with out the pretense of society and yet a mask is in place.

I found this a very sweet story. The Princess Ann (minor royalty) sneaks out of her enormous house and a gentleman - luckily, a good one and even more luckily, the one she's supposed to be betrothed to - happens to see her stuck in a tree. So he takes her out driving and to see a balloon ascension and to wander around all over Regency London without telling her who he is. So it's a bit Roman Holiday. I really liked the way they got to know each other by having fun together (though I got a bit mad at him for not telling her who he was).
