Nympha Herbert had cared for Lord Philip Stanhope. Since he was happily wed, and it privately hurt her to see how much so, she did not argue much about having to visit her rich Great-Aunt Letitia's estate. En route she had an accident and help came from Lord Nicholas Stanhope, Philip's younger brother!
Even though Nympha and Nicholas thought of the other in terms of exasperating and annoying, Nicholas escorted Nympha to her grandaunt. He had been going in that direction anyhow, due to a murdered man being found on one of his golfing sites. Nicholas wanted to learn who the dead man was and, if possible, who murdered him.
***** Once there, they seemed to like, or at least tolerate, each other better. Author Emily Hendrickson is one of my personal favorites when it comes to Regency Romances. She has never disappointed me before and this time was no exception. Characters' attitudes do not suddenly change, rather they slowly evolve. In this one I was able to see Nympha and Nicholas begin to silently reconsider their opinions of one another. The characters do not come across as air-heads or vain. (Well, except for Lady Anne, but I enjoyed watching what ended up happening with her.) I take great delight in recommending this novel to all Regency fans! *****
