Whitfield Calder, Earl of Danning, is not pleased when his old friend and most excellent valet, Quimby, has ruined his peaceful fishing retreat by arranging for a house party that includes three eligible ladies and their families. Whit reluctantly gives in, knowing he will most certainly not propose. Likewise, independent, fiery Ruby Hollingsford, tricked into attending by her social-climbing father, is not about to play the silly courtship game. Naturally, Quimby—and the lord—have other ideas. VERDICT A smart, outspoken heroine and a down-to-earth, admirable nobleman find love despite their preconceived notions and a villain who has deadly ideas. This engaging, witty inspirational Regency nicely continues Scott's appealing upstairs/downstairs series. Scott (The Courting Campaign) lives in southeastern Washington State.
