Before he rides off to Scotland to apologize for being a fortune hunter. Further crimes of miscommunication ensue followed by bouts of truly reprehensible behavior that would have many a modern day man becoming quite familiar with his living room couch apparently, we have lost our appreciation for rakes somewhere along the way, ladies and, another suitably fun, though not, to be fair, spectacular, novel takes its due course. Those sober, proper gentlemen more often than not harbor cold hearts and dark secrets.
Yes No Thanks for your feedback! The hero could be jerk at times, but Mary, the heroine, completely made it up to me. We will be reading all of her traditional Regencies over the next nine months, discussing her characters, plots and Regency history.
