The story's premise was fine. Convenient marriage, rich man looking for entree to high society. The phrasing reminded me of the regencies I used to read as a schoolgirl and it was as if Ms Gray was, indeed, writing a historical romance but forgot to change the dates.

Absolutely riveting!

I can't begin to count the number of times I've read this book. I love Elizabeth's quiet dignity, sturdy backbone, and unwavering loyalty to those she cares about.

Ok certain romances are like candy to me. This one is a like bite of dark chocolate. I have probably read it 3 times over the years. I've read other books by Gray but they do not give me the same feeling. I'm not sure what it is but I love this book which is really just a romance with a tiny bit of mystery. I love the hero and heroine and their romance. It's the perfect rainy day romance.
Fantastic! It is a book I take off my shelf to read again and again.
