"With exceptional insight and uncommon flair, [Mary] Balogh holds readers in thrall. . . . Exquisite character development, sparkling wit."--Library Journal (starred review and Editor's Pick) "Balogh gifts readers with several memorable scenes, inserting wit and passion throughout."--The Star-Ledger "Utterly delightful, charming and intelligent--a winner!"--RT Book Reviews
A fun-loving, outrageous heroine and a staid, serious hero find love against all odds. This distinctive story is a prequel to Balogh's earlier "Mistress" books and a rare delight.
