From the author of A Lady's Choice comes a Regency romance celebrating the witty and romantic world that fans of Georgette Heyer have fallen in love with.

"Simpson excels at imbuing her realistic characters with subtle depths!" --John Charles, American Library Association

Sorrow Marchand has patiently endured the taunts of London society for her bold speech and curious ways, yet it was those very qualities of the sparkling young beauty that caught the eye of the Honorable Bertram Carlyle and ultimately elicited an offer of marriage from him. But the usually candid Sorrow has kept her ludicrously madcap family a well-hidden secret from her betrothed--and now he is coming to visit!

Bertram was an exceedingly suitable suitor, but for all his many fine traits he had been harshly schooled under the oppressive thumb of his father and had meekly embraced many of the man's conventional attitudes. Upon meeting Sorrow's family and becoming swept up in the endless swirl of silly chaos, he senses a conflict of epic proportions on the horizon--both within himself and with his father.

As Sorrow grows more concerned that her outrageous relatives will damn her only chance at happiness with a man she truly loves, Bertram must find the courage to defy his very traditional father and become part of a family that's anything but--and become the man Sorrow always knew he could be.

This novella was originally published as "Sorrow's Wedding" in the anthology With This Ring.

Story with a Moral 3.5* An unusual "Regency" novel and a pleasant enough tale. Sorrow's adoptive parents are philanthropists to the nth degree, taking the elderly and the mentally and physically disabled into their own home. I'm not surprised that this would have made Sorrow unmarriageable but only amazed that it was not the talk of the Ton. Well written story. I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.
