"...comparable to notable Regency author Marian Devon." ~Romantic Times BookClub Reviews If a lady is to become a Countess, there are rules... #1: A lady does not attempt to come out in London society disguised as her deceased half-sister. #2: A lady does not become enamored of her guardian; even when his masterful kisses and whispered words of affection tempt her beyond all endurance. #3: A lady may not climb barefoot from her bedroom onto a rose trellis, nor engage in fisticuffs with riffraff even if it is to rescue street urchins. #4: No matter how impossible the odds, a lady always gives her hand and her heart—though not necessarily in that order—to the one man who sees her as she truly is and loves her despite her flagrant disobedience of the rules for a lady.
