A Great Read. It kept my interest all the way through.
This is a sweet Regency set romance with an interesting plot considering the time period. No nonsense Lady Emmeline agrees to treat the Earl or Manderly's recently broken foot with theraputic massage and nettle soaks, even though society may shun her for her interest in medicine. The Corinthian earl, fearful his friends will discover his injury and he'll lose a bet, reluctantly agrees to allow Emmeline to treat him because her mentor, and the man he originally sought to treat him, is traveling on the continent. The earl is cantankerous one moment and flirting with Emmeline the next, while she has pretty much accepted that continuing her deceased father's medical research will brand her a bluestocking spinster. The pre-conceived notions these characters have about themselves and each other leaves neither of them prepared for the subtle but growing attraction they soon feel for one another.
