Dutiful Jessamine Barry is tired of waiting patiently for a man to decide her future. So even though Lancelot Marfleet, second son of an aristocrat, is taking an interest in her during the London season, she refuses to consider him as a suitor. Instead, she’s ready to take fashionable society by storm–and finds a rakish young man all too willing to help her do it. When things go too far, Jessamine will learn that the man who is faithful through thick and thin is more worthy than the one who speaks pretty words. But will her disgrace keep Lance from reconsidering her as a wife? And when tragedy strikes and Lance becomes his father’s heir and a titled gentleman, will he think she only wants him now because of his title?
Jessamine Barry is about to step out in her first season in London. She meets Lancelot who is not who she pictured being with for the rest of her life. These characters fit perfectly inside of the regency period that Ruth Axtell has placed them in. An exquisite and beautiful story put together to make me not want to put the book down! I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars.
I received this book in exchange for my honest review from Revell Reads.
