Lady Antonia Burke is spoiled, willful, and in love with a disgraced Lord Lucien. Now she is committed to marrying another man and having second thoughts. Her upright, boringly steadfast major espouses every perfect quality she will never have.

She says, "It is
I read a lot of regencies with strong women characters in them, but none can hold a candle to Antonia. The strength of Hercules, stamina of Atlas, and courage of Achilles, indeed. (shazam!) She should have been born a Duke, instead of a duke's daughter. A good read, I was impressed actually. Dawn Lindsey was able to make me believe Tony's strength and dignity, and she had a turn of phrase in description that was very welcome as she tells her tale.

“She herself, as she had said, was oddly enjoying the snowy night. She had seldom had reason to be abroad in such weather at night, and she had forgotten, or never noticed, how clear the sky was or how brightly the stars twinkled down. They might have been the only ones alive in the whole world, for it was deadly still, the eerie light giving the night almost a magical quality. Everyday items were rendered mysterious and beautiful by their layer of white, and the only sounds were those they made, of creaking leather and the crisp squeak of snow underfoot.” 2 likes
