Elspeth Quinn prefers not to be the recipient of her Aunt
Betina's kindness as she knows that her relative detests
her and her mother, the embarrassing poor relations.
Still, her widowed mom feels a season would be good for her
daughter so the protesting Elspeth travels to Bath to join
her dazzling cousin Caroline as the frumpy charity case.
Julian Thorne is considered the prime meat of the season by
both the husband seekers and their mamas though he prefers
rustication rather than Assembly rooms. The betting line
says Caroline is the odds on favorite to reel him in as her
spouse. So why does he spend so much time with the poor
cousin kissing her and making Elspeth's heart pound?
Elspeth cannot believe he desires her above all and her
odious Aunt warns her of being an ingrate making Julian's
quest that much harder.
Though readers will wonder why the pretty wealthy
debutantes set their eyes on Julian, he is a wonderful lead
character who knows what he wants and goes about trying to
achieve his heart's desire. Elspeth is the mouse that
roars so that the audience will adore her. Her relatives
are slimy snobs who offer nothing redeeming. Fans of a
simplistic but fun Regency romance will appreciate Corey
