A young adult take on the classic Regency romance, with fewer less passionate romantic interludes, more plot, and a real mystery.
The set-up is three friends, all eligible, titled young misses, embark on their first London season. Instead of the love-at-first-sight romance, the author presents a friend-turns-into-lover plot.
Female lead: The eminently suitable dowered well-connected daughter of a duke, Lady Alexandra Stafford.
Male lead: Gavin Sewell, Earl of Blackmoor, who inherited his title from his recently deceased father, long-time family friend of the Staffords
Reminiscent of the Georgette Heyer Regencies, with more sweetness and charm than most recent historical romances.
