Review:3 stars

General: I found this book to be very well written. I had no problem sinking into historical England. The plot flowed very nicely, the characters were developed and distinct. However, overall the book was not for me. I found myself uninterested in anything except for the fact that when the duo go off…it’s actually a trio with her sister. I found that the element of the book that truly kept my attention.
This is my least favourite Laura London book. Don't get me wrong, it is beautifully written, the pacing is good, the characters well portrayed (the heroine acts exactly as a 17 year old would act, not like some novels where the heroine is 16 but is written as if she's in her mid-twenties).

I read this book originally back in sixth grade. Instead of a review, I'll touch on what I remember about reading it. Still setting up my good reads account.

The husband and wife team of Tom & Sharon Curtis [as Laura London] writing Moonlight Mist, was my initial foray into the romance genre. I was so captivated by the innocence of the romantic relationship between the 'rake hell', the damsel in distress and the narrative, that I had to find the other books.

When I picked up this book I was totally convinced I was going to read a nice traditional regency. A shotgun wedding between an innocent Miss and a more experienced rake found in a compromising position seemed just the thing to entertain me for a few hours.

Why, oh why, would Lord Melbrooke, England's dashing poet laureate, marry a raucous imp with little dowry and less social position? Only Lynden, his seventeen-year-old bride, and her fretting family knew the truth. For the arrogant aristocrat
