Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Nicholas Morgan returns from the war in Spain with a surprise for his friends and family, who assume he will marry his childhood companion, Jane Ramsey. But then he shows up with a beautiful, but correspondingly vain and vulgar, brewer's daughter as his fiance-and the stage is set for an intriguing holiday celebration. This light, fast-paced tale contains some wonderfully obnoxious characters (plus one delightful, senile nobleman); however, it also features less-than-fluent prose, abrupt point-of-view changes, and a hero and heroine whose relationship does not engage the reader until well into the story. Smith is a veteran writer of Regencies (The Spanish Lady, Fawcett, 1993). Readers who enjoy reading Smith's novels might find those by Marion Chesney of interest. (Smith lives in Canada.)
