    Lady Catherine Crawford is about to attend the first ball of her first season. Like most young ladies in her circumstances she is very nervous. Her loving parents have told her just to enjoy it. There is no rush to find a husband.
    Jeremy St. Clair, Marquess of Sather is just back from his Grand Tour of the continent. His father insists he should make the most of being young and not be so serious. There will be time much later to be responsible and worry about learning how to manage the estates.

    It was so exciting to see that Alexa Aston was writing a Regency series! Her wonderful Knights of Honor series has kept me mesmerized for many books and I knew this would be just as amazing too! Oh yes, it definitely was with this first story set that brings a hero, Jeremy St. Claire, who was so upstanding and had so much character! Determined not be like the embarrassing wastrel his father was all these years, even though his father encouraged him to enjoy himself..

    I loved reading this book! Alexa Aston wrote a story about two families . The Crawford ‘s and the
    St. Clair’s. This story has so many different emotions that draws you into story. I am looking forward to the other books about the St. Clair
    family. I hope that you enjoy the story as much as I did.
