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.

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. Harriet Klausner

This is an emotional story that deals with loneliness and longing to belong, but it also features a lot of humor, sizzling romance, and intriguing mystery. Bryne Worth just wants to be left alone in his little house by the lake to battle his demons and recover from his war wounds. But there's nothing small-town residents like more than to speculate about what the grumpy recluse is up to. Of course, this piques the interest of Lady Jane Cummings whose family has just come back to their estate in the lake country to deal with the care of her aging father. She'd like nothing better than to find some excitement and take the locals' attention off her, but she's surprised to find Bryne accused of nefarious deeds, since she knows he's a highly-decorated war hero. Dealing with the narrow-minded locals, renewing old friendships, and trying to find a place to belong lead Jane and Bryne to friendship and more. I loved the adventure, the romance, and the vivid description of village life in the lake country.
