London 1776: Lord Worth is busying himself restoring his family fortunes and burying any feelings he still harbours for the woman who rejected his proposal.
The fact that the lady in question—Lady Rebecca Fairing—happens to be his sister’s best friend, his niece’s godmother, and present at every Societal gathering of consequence is… unfortunate.
Meanwhile Rebecca fears she made the wrong decision in rejecting James Worth, but when he assures her he won’t be renewing his proposal, she is forced to accept her choice. It doesn’t take
long for the eligible Lord Worth to attract other suitors, among them Lady Sophia, daughter to Society’s most notorious gossip, Lady Goring.
Rebecca knows she must step aside and allow James to find happiness, but when she senses all is not as it seems in the Goring family, she can’t help but intervene.
As James and Rebecca work together to unearth Societal secrets, deal with scheming matriarchs, and face villainous highwaymen, they find themselves more in each other’s company than ever before.
Will they continue to bury their feelings for one another, or will they finally realise what it means to love?

My thoughts: this Regency romance is full of gossip and intrigue as James, Lord Worth and Lady Rebecca Fairing spar and conspire to help a young friend on the path to true love, and perhaps resolve their own feelings for each other along the way.
There’s the society gossip and snob Lady Goring to contend with as she practically tries to force James into marrying her daughter, the sweet Lady Sophia, her nephew Lord Avers, who has schemes of his own, James’ sister and brother-in-law, on hand as back up when James re-enters society and the dreaded Season.
Rebecca has her own sister in her corner, as well as Caro, James’ sister. Which helps as Lady Goring seems determined to ruin her life on her way to securing a rich husband for her daughter. Miserable woman that she is.
Over card games, tennis, lunches, and other high society pursuits, Rebecca realises she was a bit hasty in rejecting James and they finally realise they do actually need each other.
I’m rather glad these days you don’t have to marry to avoid disgrace and parents don’t have the same sway they once did. I felt sorry for Sophia and Rebecca, and was pleased that things sorted themselves out before Rebecca’s aunt swooped in.
There’s humour along the way, from zebras in the Royal menagerie, to meddling sisters and misunderstandings. A fun, historical romantic comedy of manners.
