Dame Durden lives in the past, and she intends her daughter to follow in her footsteps. So Edith is pushed into an engagement with the Saxon-blooded minister, Dr. Thorne, who may not be all he appears. The wild and newly elevated duke, Helver Saymore, is Edith’s own choice, but there are powerful arguments against him—including his own lack of coming to the point. Regency Romance by Joan Smith; originally published by Fawcett

“A Regency romance that goes down like a glass of lemonade, slightly tart, not overly sweet.” – Publishers Weekly
