I'm a fan of Regency romances with Georgette Heyer as my all time favourite author. This book is not as good as Heyer but a very entertaining and good read nevertheless. The heroine and hero have believable problems and the sense of period is well drawn. The little asides of humour add to the pleasure of this book. I would like to see more from Beth Elliott. Recommended.
