I do love a regency romance and was thoroughly surprised and captivated by this tale by Virginia Heath.  This is the first book I’ve read by Virginia Heath and I’m already considering downloading her debut novel ‘That Despicable Rogue’.

Virginia transported me back in time to when courtships were taken place in ballrooms and ladies were like a commodity to suitable suitors to help bring wealth to estates.  I was soon transfixed to this romantic tale that was filled with obligations and responsibilities, to feuds and entitlement, to respect and honour, to innocent wanting’s and raw longings.  I loved how the author dealt so sensitively with difficult subject matters.  Emotional bullying was quite common place many years ago and women especially felt first hand the taunting effects of this.  Virginia also broached the subject of PTSD, which is quite a relatively new recognised condition however, as humans the shock and trauma of terrible ordeals will not have been felt differently decades ago to what they are now.  I loved how the male and female characters had certain strengths dealing with these two unpleasant experiences.  I was completely romanticised by this historical read and at times wished the shy and stubborn characters would just open up to each other … but then there wouldn’t be much of a story.  A mesmerising regency romp to fall in love with 5/5*.
