Seventeen- year-old Lady Alexander Stafford doesn't fit into the world of Regency London - she's strong willed, sharped tongued, and she absolutely loathes dress fittings. Unfortunately, her mother has been waiting years for Alex to be old enough to take part in the social whirlwind of a London season so she can be married off to someone safe, respectable, wealthy, and almost certainly boring. But Alex is much more interested in adventure than romance.
Between sumptuous balls, lavish dinner parties, and country weekends, Alex, along with her two best friends, Ella and Vivi, manages to get entangled in her biggest scrape yet. When the Earl of Blackmoor is killed in a puzzling accident, Alex decides to help his son, the brooding and devilishly handsome Gavin, uncover the truth. It's a mystery brimming with espionage, murder, and suspicion. As she and Gavin grow closer, will Alex's heart be stolen in the process?
Romance and danger fill the air, as this year's season begins!
Boys, ballgowns, romance and mystery....
What more can you want in a romance novel. But the core heart of this story is about female friendship and the strong ties that last throughout the centuries.
I loved every aspect of this novel... the way it has been written, the characters, the plot, the back drop... everything!
It makes you realize how important it is for us girls to have the companionship of other women in our lives and to share things with each other without fear of judgement.
I truly hope that the author is writing a second novel to this one, as it would be wonderful to follow the lives of Alex's girlfriends.
Can't rave enough about this book....
Wonderful cover, hardback copy a bonus.
Please read if you love these type of books.
