What was this book about? Oh, Abby the attractive bachelorette and Calverleigh the uncle of the useless boy who is running after Abby's exquisite but overly romantic niece. Quite liked the romance! Calverleigh isn't too alpha male-ish (though I tend to feel, with romance heroes, that there is always space for less alpha maleness), he says lots of nice things to Abby, and I like that they bond over having a similar sense of humour.

Lots of references to India, from which Calverleigh has returned. And lots about how awful it was that his family exiled him there (though Calverleigh himself doesn't think so) and Calverleigh's stories of strange foreign customs and so on. I operated policy of bah, ignore! so that I could continue reading my Regency brain candy but not to say that's the best policy or that it would work for everyone.
