I like novels with confident leading ladies. Lady Lydia Eastlake is the ton notable nonpareil. It was said the exotic heiress could weaken the knees of any strong man and women emulated her. She fascinated international circles; the courts were her playgrounds and the world her stage. Crowds drew in her presence. She had to just mention a boutique or eat a certain dish and it instantly became a heighten sensation. By all accounts the independent spinster controlled an empire only few members of the uppermost echelon could equal. With the war over and a weaken economy the charismatic and willful bon vivant continued spending as usual. So what happens when she finds out she is destitute! Downsizing to a small townhouse with a cook and a maid was a gloomy prison cell. Like any other member of the ton she does the inevitable. Hunt! This year would be her golden season to find a husband before she's outcast and the cent-per-centers come knocking. No longer in control of her freedom and if she could not marry for love; she could set standards for the type of man she would marry. A pretentious dandy was tiresome. No, his social standing had to be similar or equal to hers. His money pocket...definitely nonnegotiable. At the top of her list and every other matchmaking mama was a warm breeze. Naval captain Ned Lockton. The war hero was honorable with amiable qualities and RICH. Wimpish he was not, a selfless defender with a sense of loyalty and RICH. Rational, serious in nature, non-rakish and RICH. Truth be told, he was 'deep in dun territory' just as much as she was. Enthralling how it unfolds. Strong storyline, good supporting characters. Excellent choice for my first novel by a talented writer. A series for the supporting characters should be considered.

I have 3 words to describe this book: boring, boring, boring. Boring plot, boring characters, boring writing style. Could not finish this book, half way through had to ditch it.

In 1816 Lady Lydia Eastlake learns she is broke, but wants a final Golden Season before she is forced to marry an affluent lord. She assumes finding a wealthy match will prove easy as she is beautiful and has the proper pedigree though her age at a shelf life of twenty-four and never been under the control of any male or for that matter even a female but being an orphan might go against her. War hero Captain Ned Lockton returns to England in search of a wife with money as his family estate is teetering on bankruptcy. When Lydia and Ned meet, they are attracted to one another while also believing the other is rich. Each learns the dire straits of their beloved's finances and sadly concludes they must pragmatically look elsewhere as love does not pay the bills. This terrific Regency romance stars two strong lead characters (especially the pursuing female) who are both in financial trouble due to an economic recession and in her case too much spending. Ironically, his fighting against Napoleon left him and his family vulnerable to the economy's slump. Lydia and Ned make the tale as they want one another, but look to the odious Smyth types for marriage as neither can afford to wed for love. Harriet Klausner
