The traditional Regency classic from New York Times bestseller Loretta Chase is back...At the advanced age of 26, the independent, wealthy and imminently practical Isabella Latham has no expectation of marriage. But, good-hearted and dutiful, Isabella accompanies her two young country cousins to oversee their London debut...only to find that it's she who is attracting suitors...all of whom do seem to have quite an excess of creditors! There's the sinfully sexy Basil Trevelyan, a rake through and through, but so charming that even sensible Isabella is almost tempted. But then there's his maddeningly handsome-and maddeningly arrogant!-cousin, Edward Trevelyan, seventh Earl of Hartleigh, who has no need of Isabella's dowry; but whose adorable orphaned ward needs a mama. Could he love Isabella for herself? Isabella is too busy trying to decide whether to kiss him-or kill him! Poor, poor Isabella. What's a girl to do? But more importantly...who's a girl to choose?

This is a traditional Regency, meaning it's more in the vein of Georgette Heyer than some of the stuff published now (though it's a bit more risque than Heyer). It's very funny, and while I found the hero to be a biiiiit bland, I loved the villain, actually, and am pleased to see that Chase wrote another book about him. Anyway, this is essentially a comedy of manners, which is my favorite type of book, and it's a pretty entertaining one at that.
