This is a good, clean, entertaining novel. There is not a lot of guessing yet I never lost interest.
Valerie Gilbert delivered a stellar performance!
This book was well worth the credit!

A simple stroll in the churchyard turns terrible for Claire Stewart when she's attacked and assaulted by a local viscount. The viscount's sister, Lady Regina, witnesses the scene and instead of helping Claire, she threatens her. If Claire doesn't win over the affections of the Earl of Roydon, Lady Regina will tell all of London society about the attack and Claire will be ruined.
To save her reputation and that of her sisters, Claire agrees to the scheme. But when she meets the Earl of Royden, she's plagued with guilt and unable to feel more than friendship for him. It's the Earl's best friend, the Duke of Lamborton, who stirs her heart.
This is a sweet clean read with a brief description of attempted assault in the first chapter. It's a great choice for fans of historical romance, there are plenty of descriptions of the balls and assemblies they attended. The characters, especially Claire and the Duke, are likable and their intrigues and schemes kept me interested. The narration was well done, and fit the story well. Valerie Gilbert performed different voices for each character and was consistent throughout the book. Overall, it was a gentle Regency novel, a great way to spend a few hours.
