About the book: Amber Marie Sterlington, the Rage of the Season in Regency-era London, has her pick of men, and she knows what she wants most in a husband: a title and a fortune. Why would she ever marry for something as fickle as love? And why would she ever look twice at Thomas Richards, a third son of a country lord?
But when Amber's social standing is threatened, the character of her future husband becomes far more important than his position. After a public humiliation, she find herself exiled to Yorkshire. alone except for her maid, Amber is faced with a future she never expected in a circumstance far below what she has known all her life. Humbled and lonely, Amber begins to wonder if isolation is for the best. Who could ever love her now?
My review: Oh. My. Goodness. If you love regency romances then you are in for a treat with this new addition to the Proper Romance line by Shadow Mountain Publishing! I loved everything about this book. I loved Amber, well...after she learned a little bit about herself and grew up. At the beginning she was very conceited because she was the "Rage of the Season." I found it kind of interesting to see the relationship between her and her younger sister, Darra. Darra is jealous of Amber and Amber is domineering to Darra. I liked Thomas too, I liked that he wasn't willing to play the games of the London season simply to secure a wife for himself.
The plot of this one was great too. I liked the way that Amber had something big that she had to deal with that ultimately banished her from the season, her family and society. In doing so, it forces her to grow up and deal with the situation. I loved that she was eventually able to see outside of herself and show some compassion for others who had problems too. And the ending is perfect for this book. I love books about the regency era and this one is great! You won't want to miss it!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
