In Camp's delightful latest regency Matchmakers novel, the unmatched is beautiful 23-year-old Lady Calandra, whose overprotective brother and guardian, the formidable duke of Rochford, has intimidated all comers. When Callie is rescued, at a masked ball, from a drunken partygoer's unwanted advances, her hero turns out to be the mysterious earl of Bromwell, an enemy of Callie's brother. Although Rochford orders Bromwell and Callie to stay away from each other, Callie grabs the reins and enlists the help of matchmaker Lady Francesca Houghston. Francesca is torn, however, because she knows the source of enmity between the two men, which neither will speak of. Meanwhile, Bromwell's twice-married older sister, the Lady Daphne, returns to society and plots to destroy Callie's reputation (because Rochford had refused to marry Daphne years earlier). Camp is firmly at home here, enlivening the romantic quest between her engaging lovers with a set of believable and colorful secondaries.
