What Readers Say!
"This is a delightful experience of Regency love and the problems of a young girl in this era. It winds its way into your heart and mind. I love Regency and I loved this story. The problems that Roxanne had to overcome were extensive and the twists and turns of the story kept me turning pages and worrying over her. I could read stories like this every night. Kudos to Arabella Sheraton again for a job well done. Thank you for a wonderful read. You understood your characters' personalities and gave them flesh and bones. The ending was a marvelous surprise and the other characters had you rooting for them, too, except for nasty Mister Doyle. This lovely tale gets five stars for Regency elegance and heart throbbing excitement. Excitedly, more of this author's books will grace my library and yours soon." --Linda Hays-Gibbs, The Romance Reviews
