Overview

This Regency lady is an outcast in her own family.

Ever since her mother abandoned her father, Lady Deborah Martin can’t seem to please the earl. Now she’s offended another important man in her life, handsome Lord Foxborough. As a result, during what ought to be her season in society, she finds herself in London as little better than a companion to her widowed cousin Melanie.

Deborah makes plans of her own, to launch a career as a singer upon the stage. But this Regency-era Cinderella soon finds her plans colliding with those of everyone around her – including, most particularly, Foxborough himself.

    My first take on this book is that it is another ¿Cinderella¿ st

    My first take on this book is that it is another “Cinderella” story. That does not mean, however, that I did not thoroughly enjoy the read. This is the fourth of Jacque’s books that I have read. Author’s who write series books tend, naturally, to have similar elements that can be found in each of their books. I’ve run into series of books by other authors who tell nothing but the same story with different characters. This book, however, I feel is the most different from the other three books that I have read. While there are many of the same elements: “One of the daughters is 'bad ton', daughter becomes good ton, lots of mis-understandings with greatly delayed explanation and insight, a nasty 'other woman' out to smear the daughter's reputation, girls both get boys, blah, blah,” as quoted by C. Mattoon from a review on Amazon. These elements are not what is important so much as the story and how the story is told. Yes, all of Jacque’s books have these elements… However, as is different in this story it is not love that seems so impossibly out of reach as it is the means by which the heroine is to reach that love, the obstacles that she must overcome. Different from the first three, the love between the heroine and the hero is never doubted. There is more action and more bravery in this story then in the others where scandal and disgrace are the primary modes of conflict. In this story, Jacque takes the conflict one step further to a desperate chase and daring rescue with injurious consequences. Yet justice leads to a happy ending, and as much as I LOVE a happy ending, this is much more like a Brothers Grimm fairy tale then the fluffy “happily ever after” of Disney.

    Silly but fun

    "Ugly" half sister hated by father and a sister. Sent as a companion, in disgrace. Silly but amusing characters. Will try some others of authors book.
