The Discerning Gentleman's Guide by Virginia Heath had me hooked from the very first chapter! What a wonderful story of two people from vastly different worlds... finding common ground and true love! Amelia Mansfield is a companion to Lady Worsted the aunt of a Duke. She has a scandalous past, although not of her doing. She finds fulfillment in helping other less fortunate people, volunteering and attending political reform campaigns to make a difference. She loathes aristocrats…. Bennett Montague, sixteenth Duke of Aveley is following in his father’s footsteps. He’s a politician and one of the Regent’s most trusted advisers. He’s even gone so far as to write down all of his father’s advice in a book that was published, The Discerning Gentleman's Guide….. Oh my how did I miss this gem of a book? I absolutely adored Bennett and Amelia from the moment I met them. Bennett is not your typical duke. Yes he’s handsome and rich and a little stodgy… But he’s also a little shy and cringes at his own behavior. I started rooting for Amelia the moment we met her in the carriage reading Bennett’s book! She was such a lovable character who’s been through a lot but survived. The chemistry and dialogue between these two were fabulous along with a fantastic group of secondary characters. This was one of those books I just couldn’t put down! I only wish I had read it sooner. This is definitely a keeper and another 5 star from the pen of Virginia Heath.
An amazing story for those discerning readers. Bennett Montague, a "stodgy" Duke, meets rebellious Lady's companion, Amelia. Bennett's guide is a very interesting look into the expectations of the time period. Its a wonderful story of how two very different people see the true person inside. Highly recommend.
