Overview

It's the Christmas season and Lady Amelia St. Vincent, spinster sister of the Devil Duke of Enwright, finds herself in something of a quandary. While attending Lord Raynecourt's annual holiday house party she has been relentlessly pursued by a veritable army of men after her hand in marriage. Not to mention her obscenely sizeable dowry. She is at her wit's end when the dashing Lord Fitzherbert Frost, the current Earl of Houghton, appears as if by magic and comes to her rescue, saving her from yet another fortune hunter.

Now paired with Lord Frost during a rather absurd treasure hunt through the manor house, Amelia must decide if she is willing to trade one night in the earl's bed for a lifetime of ruination. Or whether the magical power of love can melt even the frostiest of hearts before it is too late.

This 36,300-word novella, which is a companion piece to the "Tales From Seldon Park" series, is written in the modern, Regency romance style for a slightly hotter and sexier read. It may not be appropriate for younger audiences.

I really enjoy Regency romances when they're well written. I had hopes for this book, but there were many times when the narrative didn't make sense or the wrong word was used. One instance was Lady Raynecourt "drug" Mellie somewhere. It should be "dragged". Lady R also "yanks" Mellie about the ballroom. The characters of Mellie and Fitz both have double personalities. He's supposed to be "horribly shy and bookish" and "flirtatious", "not a rake", but feels a "woman's dress looks best on the floor while she's naked in his bed". When she arrives at the house party she's been abandoned by her brother so he can go to another house party. She's so concerned about "being pawed at by every doddering old fool... and salivated over by every rake" that "the very thought made her so ill she wanted to retreat to her chambers." Yet she is supposed to have "raked Fitz's body with her eyes" and shown with her "heated gaze" that she "desired him". They exchange a few words as they first meet, but Mellie's ready to marry "a man like him", he "was a good man". How does she know? He later takes her to the conservatory alone which would compromise her. Mellie is referred to as a "chit", but a spinster in her late twenties. For intelligent, humourous Regency and Georgian novels read Eloisa James, Tessa Dare, Mary Balogh and Grwce Burrowes.

Great story although I do wish it had been put in proper order since it seems this should have been one of the first books read. I also noticed the novellas for this series do not appear with the series so people may not know they are.
