Miles Lufton is a rising MP in Regency England with excellent prospects, but he lives a double life of sorts: one side of him is "Pronto", the energetic rake who thrives in the political scene, while the "Miles" side longs for a quiet life at his country house, Troy Chimneys. The period detail and voice are excellent, and Miles' split personality is beautifully done, along with his bittersweet romance. I really, really liked this and am feeling as though I'm not doing it justice here, but if you like historical novels, it's worth searching out; I'll certainly be looking for more Kennedy.
