I'm reviewing the romance novels I kept from many years ago. Mary Burchell is my favorite romance author, and But Not For Me is one of her best. Written in 1938 (although my copy was published in 1971), it's a gentle read with a great plot and interesting characters.

Mary Burchell is one of my favorite romance writers. I consider this book and Except My Love to be her two best stories. The character development and plot twists in this book kept me entertained while the love story that develops between Ariane and Harvey made me smile. By the end, I was ready to marry Harvey myself; I love a darkly, romantic hero.
One of the most charming vintage Harlequins I've read. Strongly influenced by P&P and a delightful period piece, really.
