This is the first in Elena Greene's Three Disgraces series, a regency about three young women who met in school and remained close friends despite family and social pressures. Lady Catherine, a duke's daughter, is lovely, spirited, and despised by her father and stepmother. After attempting to elope with a notorious rake (to escape from her cold, disdainful family), Lady Catherine is banished by her father to stay with her spinster aunts in Cumberland. Unless she marries the man of his choice - ...more

I read the first novel in the Three Disgraces series only so I could read the third (Saving Lord Verwood) with some degree of understanding. The book itself is rather boring, but the characters are fine and I didn't regret reading it.

For those who love Jane Austen, this is a charming pastiche. It's teeny bit slow for those used to modern romances, but was perfect for the genre and was most "diverting." ;)

Well written though could have used a few more details for me. I liked that you knew she had a secret but you didn't quite know what it was until the end. Will definitely be getting the 2nd book. This was a great First reads.
This was the perfect read for Valentine's Day! I vote for Philip as the Sweetheart of the Year.

“You still love me? After all I have done?” she asked, her voice breaking.
