From author Reina M. Williams comes the first book in the A Gentleman's Daughter series, traditional regencies for fans of sweet period dramas.
Regency England: rakes and radicals, poets and patriots, the hardy and the hedonistic. What is a gentleman's daughter to do in these changing and challenging times? She will skirmish for love, ever polite, though sometimes her white kid gloves must come off.
Cecilia Wilcox's frustrating and unsettling encounter with a handsome stranger is soon pushed from her thoughts by the appearance of her first love, the rakish, elegant best friend of her older brother. Disapproving of her daughter's choice, her domineering mother takes her to London to find a husband. She introduces Cecilia to a charming rogue and the stranger, whose commanding and inscrutable presence both disturbs and captivates her. Amidst London balls and country house parties, Cecilia must wade through false assumptions, betrayals, and revenge to reclaim the man she loves.
"Austen-esque... an interesting stroll through history." (Clean Romance Reviews)
"To my delight, this story... is set in a slightly different world from the usual realm of scheming bluebloods. ... Historical romance readers should put this right at the top of their list." (Long and Short Reviews)
"I enjoyed the charming banter between Cecilia and the young men trying to woo her, again very much 'a la Jane Austen'." (Library of Clean Reads)

Who's on first?
No. The story is all over the place and confusing. As confusing as the comic routine Who's On First featuring Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, but nowhere near as entertaining.
Caprisha Page is by far my favorite female narrator and I admire her ability to get through this book. However, even her exceptional storytelling ability could not explain this story to me.
