Publisher's Summary

When Lord John returns from the Battle of Waterloo nursing a serious wound and a case of melancholia, he is hopeful of beginning a happier phase in his life. Living with a wife and family in his native Lincolnshire would soothe his soul. His sights are set on the lovely Miss Lindsay, his country neighbor's daughter. But to his mystification, he keeps getting distracted by her family's governess - a little dab of a thing who is not at all what she seems. What is her secret?
His determination to solve the mystery of Miss Haverley begins to seriously undermine his interest in Miss Lindsay, who is confident he is about to offer for her. In the face of this, how can he pursue his interest in the family governess? Not only must he solve this dilemma, but he must discover what the petite woman is hiding.
When Miss Haverley begs him to resist satisfying his curiosity because such a course could bring her harm, his dilemma doubles. His enchantment turns to worry. He is more determined than ever to rescue her from whatever demons she is trying to escape, for Miss Haverley alone seems to have the power to stir him to passion and hope for a new life.

Light and Lovely Regency Romp.

I really enjoyed this sweet, charming and clean romance. Vandagriff has a lovely flair for the period… Her stories are gentle, warm and have that true Jane Austin-style winsome quality. Delia was a lovely heroine – a runaway noblewoman who chooses her independence over a cruel arranged marriage by a controlling uncle. Under a false name she takes a position as a governess and crosses path with Lord John Lambeth, just returned from Waterloo. This novel works as a stand-alone but certainly would make you want to learn more about Felicity and John’s brother, Lord Grenville. The narration is excellent… the characterizations are clear and lively and I think his style has relaxed from the first book from being less theatrical to more cozy for this style of romance.

Clean, Charming and Cozy

I enjoyed this book just as much as the first one and I thought the narration was wonderful. His voice is warm and wry and I thought the performance was really engaging and nuanced. You don’t need to read the first to enjoy this… but they certainly enhance each other. I loved Lord Grenville’s Choice, and this book creates an entirely fresh and engaging romance narrative while still weaving together characters from the previous book. Vandagriff has created an endearing heroine in Delia – a kind of British Anne of Green Gables spirit who is on the run from an abusive guardian uncle. Lord John is a great lead character – and Vandagriff has written him struggling severely from the trauma of the war and his place in society – it gives depth to the obstacles between to the two characters. The author does a really nice job of spinning a cozy yarn with a kind of serial feel. You feel sure that things will turn out all right in the end, but the journey there is a delightful romp. If you are looking for a sweet and charming romance filled with Regency charm without any bodice-ripping, you’re sure to enjoy.
