Book Summary:

Nora Ellsworth, darling of London society, has her choice of eligible suitors, but since childhood, she has been expected to marry Jonathan Browning, a gentleman whose wealth and stability will someday secure the futures of Nora and her mother and sister. The family estate will pass to an odious male cousin upon the death of Nora’s father, and when he suddenly takes ill, her need to marry well becomes vitally important.

As Nora struggles with the idea of marrying without love, she finds herself increasingly drawn to Devlin Fausett, a man with dark eyes and intriguing conversation. But Devlin’s reputation as an indebted gambler is difficult to ignore. Despite the rumors from the ton and the marriage decision before her, Nora is determined to befriend the dashing Mr. Fausett, and his charms soon make it all but impossible to remember her duty. Until she learns the truth of her fortune. There is a way to keep her family’s estate, but the price is high: Nora must wed, as soon as possible. Torn between two very different men, she must make the ultimate decision. Will she be guided by her head or her heart?


This is a stand-alone romance but for those who have read Chalon’s previous book An Inconvenient Romance, you will appreciate the appearance of characters from that novel.

This is a fun Regency romance with several twists and turns. It has a few story elements that are quite original and I appreciated that this story was memorable because of those elements. Devlin in a flawed man yet still likable.

Overall a very enjoyable read that I can recommend to any who enjoy clean Regency romance.
