A Bride Unveiled - Jillian Hunter A charming romance, with a little mystery. The two stories, one of children playing and then, their adult romance make for wonderful comparisons. The children make a stronger, better impression than the adult version, which sometimes seems a bit contrived. Both of the main characters, Kit and Violet, are wonderfully drawn, seem like flesh-and-blood, but a bit too perfect to type, they both need a quirk or two, to feel real.

The plot is excellent, the fencing descriptions exuberant.
