Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: When Edward Ailsbury, the new Earl of Heyward, rescues Angeline Dudley from public embarrassment, Angeline falls instantly in love. But the stuffy Earl has little concern for Angeline. Edward wishes only to wed an old friend for an amicable companionship, a good match for his staid persona. But Angelina may show Edward that comfort is no match for passion.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2011 April #2
    Impulsive Lady Angeline Dudley knows she will never be the petite blond beauty her late mother was, especially given the unfashionably bright colors and outrageous bonnets she adores. She is so excited to finally be on her way to London for her long-delayed season that she imprudently goes to the empty taproom of the inn in which she waits impatiently for her brother, the Duke of Tresham. She soon finds herself in an awkward position, but Edward Ailsbury, Earl of Heyward, characterized by some as stuffy and an old stick, comes to her defense. In London, Angeline's and Edward's families both think they would be a perfect match, but when Edward proposes, Angeline, who has fallen hard for him, refuses because, even though she wants him, she wants him to love her. These unusual protagonists, considered odd or boring by their peers, are kind, considerate, virtuous, and have secret depths. Balogh, the current nonpareil of Regency romance, has imbued this story with heady sensuality and an eighteenth-century sensibility, complete with curtains fluttering and birds singing.
