Miranda Neville is turning into one of my favorite authors. This was an unpredictable Regency, the two protagonists sufficiently different from the stereotypical hero and heroine that I was enthralled.
First, Sebastian Iverley, once known as Owlvery to his cousin Blakeney, has totally ignored the female sex until he catches a glimpse of Diana's pink stockings.He's smitten and clueless but he's a fast learner.
Lady Diana Fanshawe has no need to marry, she's wealthy and widowed. She's pursuing Blakeney, more out of habit than desire, when Sebastian appears on the scene, upsetting her well-laid plans.
Seeing the two of them bumble their way into a romantic relationship and then marriage is an unexpected pleasure.
