In 1816 Lady Irene Wyngate is a confirmed bachelorette after watching the destruction of her late odious father, who left behind debts for his heir and nothing for his wife and daughter. At the same time she rejoices in spinsterhood, her brother¿s new wife, Maura, a country bumpkin trying to prove she is the equal of Londoners, has made life in his home tedious for Irene. Almost ten years ago, the earl of Radbourne, Gideon was abducted and forced to grow up as Gideon Cooper in the worst slums, but he still made a fortune the old fashion way by earning it. Although he feels inferior and not good marital material, his persistent grandmother Lady Odelia demands he marry someone suitable. Gideon understands he must, but needs a wife who accepts his unassuming manner. So far the eligible female Ton is driving him crazy. That is until he meets Irene especially since he recognizes her as the spirited female he once encountered during an incident he had with her father. --- The key to this delightful Matchmaker Regency romance is the support cast who bring so much to the tale of love between Gideon and Irene. The story line is fast-paced and has a bit of a mystery re the hero¿s parentage that enhances the plot. Sub-genre fans will enjoy this fine historical and Candace Camp¿s previous entry (see THE MARRIAGE WAGER) while the climax implies Francesca the matchmaker is next on the block --- Harriet Klausner

An intricate story of a child kidnapped at age four, who is miraculously found! Gideon is the long lost heir to the Earl of Radbourne but has grown up on the streets of London. Oh yes, a little rough around the edges but has somehow been successful running a gaming club, although he is not up to the standards of society!! But with the suggestion of Francesca Haughston (the matchmaker who continually shows up in this series!) the heroine Irene Wyngate is asked to help with Gideon's transformation into a gentlemen! Easy you say? Well Irene is such a strong character who grew up in not the best of conditions with her drunken father and unhappy mother. She has no intention of marrying and being miserable! I loved her integrity and how she stands her ground! Of course it is hard not to fall in love with Gideon who is an engaging story with many characters who stand out. The mystery is what really happened to Gideon all those years ago and as these two spend time together, will they find an attraction that cannot be resisted? Candace Camp is one of the best historical writers who always engages my senses with her storylines and emotions between the hero and heroine. I cannot wait to read the rest of this series and I highly recommend this book and really anything this author has written! Lori Dykes

A frothy romp with an interesting mystery but Camp never once gives us the hero's perspective which could have elevated this story past mediocre.

Rune nodded. "Great job." She said. She put it back in the box, and pulled out a quite big one that was straightish and jet-black, not reflection, oddly. "What about this one?" She asked Fiora. ((The quest, very good idea...))

I love C.C. books but I couldn't get into female charater in this book. Lady Irene was just too bitter for me. I didn't give it less stars becasue the writing, story and other charaters made up for her. And the ending was brilliant. I was hoping for more back and forth from Francesca and The Duke of Rochford can't wait for their story.
