Overview

Sophie Barnes is back with another delightful Summersby Tale. This time, Ryan Summersby meets his match!

Mary Croyden lives a simple life . . . and she likes it. But when she inherits a title and a large sum of money, everything changes. Forced to navigate high society, Mary finds herself relying on the help of one man—Ryan Summersby. Determined not to lose her sense of self, she realizes that Ryan is the only person she can trust. But Mary's hobbies are not exactly proper, and Ryan is starting to discover that this simple miss is not at all what he expected . . . but just might be exactly what he needs.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Mary Croyden thought her father was nothing more than a talented surgeon; his only legacy was to teach her all of his skills. Upon his death, she discovers that in fact he was a marquis, and he left her his title and wealth. Suddenly, Mary has to make her way among the aristocrats. Fortunately, she meets Ryan Summersby, an infuriatingly attractive lord who takes her under his wing. Little does she know that he was sent to protect her from unknown conspirators bent on seeing her dead. The tension between Mary and Ryan keeps the story from falling into trite mystery territory, and the whole book has a lovely sense of humor. The reader will enjoy watching the leads do their best not to fall in love and fail—repeatedly!

Verdict This latest title in Barnes “Summersby” series (after Lady Alexandra’s Excellent Adventure) is a fun mystery that livens up a romantic tale filled with delightful characters. The perfect book for a rainy Saturday with a cup of tea.—Emily Thompson, SUNY at Oswego Lib.

Sophie Barnes is extremely talented. I've loved all her books so far! This one is packed with an interesting plot that I think people will really grab a hold of. I really enjoyed it and highly recommend it. Well done Miss Barnes, you've blossomed into a wonderfully engaging author and I can't wait until your next book!

Didn't like it as well as Alex's story. I just didn't get into the main character's as I did in the first book of the series. After saying this, it is worth reading. Reminds the reader how far women have come! Ljb

I enjoyed this book. I always enjoy reading book that go together, but at the same time you can read this alone. In reguards to the one comment about Ryan being narrow minded, I don't think he was at all. He felt like so many other people of the time might have. He didn't know Mary well enough to agree with what she was doing. And there was more than just one kiss. About to read about William!!

This was a good book, but the male lead was a bit too narrow minded and NO sex at all just one kiss. For the female lead to be so innocent after having been ar war was a long stretch. It was all in all a good book

Very good book. I enjoyed the interesting way the writer presented Mary and her life, she kept you guessing. She was raised by her father in a Man's World which proved beneficial for her and her love of serving others. She was a smart girl and turned out to be a smart woman. It is nice to have a love story without all the details of the romance.

Neither character is interesting on any level. I dont get their "romance". Neither character or story inspired any sort of emotion for me other than boredom. Their dialogue is boring and the story is boring. I wanted to like this book and i tried to get through it but i just couldnt...

This is Ryan's story. Mary is introduced at the end of Alexandra's story. This author, in my opinion, gives her heroines over-the-top skills inconsistent with the Regency period. Her heroes come across as weak in comparison, despite being paragons. William's story is up next.

I am not that caught up in the summersby family stories. However, I enjoyed the heroine in this book. Ms. Barnes gives some interesting facts about medicine and the difficulties women faced in this time period. A pleasant read.
