Mary Chen *Nulla in mundo pax sincera*
I don't feel justified in providing my usual diplomatic review, so here is the breakdown:

This one wasn't as exciting as Lady Jane's Ribbons even though the other woman triangle kept things lively for a while. The misunderstanding was very annoying. I hated that the hero thought the heroine was having an affair with another man for practically the whole book and didn't believe her when she told him she wasn't. Especially since she was being mistreated by the guy. Instead of protecting her from the jerk, he was too busy discrediting her virtue. 2.5 stars.
