This was good, although there were several moments I personally could have strangled Phila for her hysterics, but I forgive them all due to the presence of The Great Lady Tony as a bit player in the tale.
A rather mediocre regency with a rather dull, almost lifeless heroine and a hero who is so withdrawn and reserved that even the reader can't connect with him.

This is the prequel to 'The Great Lady Tony'. Both are excellent regencies. I have requested these books to be made available on Kindle. Both are on my keeper shelf.
