Overview

From the acclaimed author of Revealed comes a tale of first loves and second chances.

Lady Jane Cummings is certain that her summer is ruined when she is forced to reside at isolated Merrymere Lake with her reckless brother and ailing father. Her fast-paced London society is replaced with a small town grapevine. But one bit of gossip catches Jane's attention- rumors that the lake's brooding new resident is also an elusive highwayman.

Jane must face the much discussed mysterioso after he saves her brother from a pub brawl. She immediately recognizes him from London: Byrne Worth, war hero and apparent hermit-whom she finds strangely charming. The two build a fast friendship, and soon nothing can keep this Lady away from Merrymere's most wanted. Convinced of his innocence, Jane is determined to clear Byrne's name-and maybe have a little fun this summer after all.

    Just what You Need on a Summer's Day

    Kate Noble has done it again. This RITA award nominated writer (for Revealed) continues to shine through with her smart and witty writing. If you are a historical romance fan, but tire of the Ton and all its foppishness, give this one a try. Lady Jane Cummings is stranded in a small town in the Lake District away from the doings of London. The cast of characters are delightful - from the mischevious Joshua and Michael to the haunting Bryne. I could just picture the locale even though I had never been to the north of England and certainly never in the 1800's - from standing on the slimy deadhead to swimming nude in the icy cold water, I was there. Can't wait for her next one.

    more from this reviewer

    This is an engaging Regency rustic romance

    Lady Jane Cummings knows her summer is ruined as she is forced to rusticate in the Village of Reston due to the misbehavior of her brother, her dad's illness and her former friends Phillipa becoming a Worth (see revealed). Simply put, the ironically titled Merrymore is not London.

    Everything changes when she meets the hermit next door. She knows Byrne Worth is the war hero who saved her inane sibling from at least a beating in a recent pub fight. Each is attracted to the other and soon they fall in love, but Byrne realistically knows she is levels above him and that he is just a passing summer fancy. However, when the locals believe Byrne is a highwayman, an outraged Jane puts herself at risk to prove her beloved is innocent.

    With some late suspense this is an engaging Regency rustic romance containing two likable lead characters and a fascinating small-town country crowd who cleverly replace the Ton with local gentry gossip re scandal. The story line is fast-paced as Jane and Byrne become friends in love, but she must take charge of their relationship as he keeps somewhat an emotional distance from his beloved. The sub-genre audience will enjoy this fine historical as Jane insists Byrne is worth her love, but Byrne believes he is unworthy of her.
