I loved it, but the last chapter felt a bit like an episode of Perry Mason. ( )

Reginald Mason is wealthy, refined, and, by all accounts, a gentleman. However, he is not a gentleman by birth, a factor that pains him and his father, Bernard Mason, within the Regency society that upholds station over all else. That is, until an opportunity for social advancement arises, namely, Lady Annabelle Ashton. Daughter of the Earl of Havercroft, a neighbor and enemy of the Mason family, Annabelle finds herself disgraced by a scandal, one that has left her branded as damaged goods. Besmirched by shame, the earl is only too happy to marry Annabelle off to anyone willing to have her. Though Bernard wishes to use Annabelle to propel his family up the social ladder, his son does not wish to marry her, preferring instead to live the wild, single life he is accustomed to. With this, Bernard serves his son an ultimatum: marry Annabelle, or make do without family funds. Having no choice, Reginald consents, and enters into a hostile engagement in which the prospective bride and groom are openly antagonistic, each one resenting the other for their current state of affairs while their respective fathers revel in their suffering. So begins an intoxicating tale rife with dark secrets, deception, and the trials of love--a story in which very little is as it seems.
Entertaining read, shorter than most of Balogh's books, romantic as always. ( )

In this charming short novel by Mary Balogh, the children of two rival neighbors are forced into an arranged marriage. Reggie Mason, the son of the wealthy but untitled Bernard Mason, is an extravagant young man who has spent more than his fair share of time gambling and shopping. His father, in an attempt to rein in his heir, has decided that Reggie must marry into nobility. However, the only noblewoman who is even a remote possibility is Lady Annabelle Ashton, who recently disgraced her family by attempting to run away with the coachman. Lady Annabelle was the belle of the latest Season, and had been courted by the son of a duke, until her indiscretion with the coachman. It is a mere matter of days before both Reggie and Annabelle’s parents have reached an agreement of marriage, regardless of their childrens’ objections.

A few spelling errors mar the flow of this novel. However, Mary Balogh is well known for her Regency romances, and this is a prime, though short, example. A fun, fluffy read. ( )

I kind of suspected the twist toward the end, but I still couldn't help flailing with a stupid grin on my face when it was revealed. I feel like some parts of the writing could have been a bit more polished when it came to tying everything together to match the stories up, as it were, but for the most part I didn't care. It was a really sweet story, and I'm glad Balogh was able to do it in so few pages; I was worried it would seem rushed, but it didn't.

Read the review on my blog here. ( )

Lovely story with what I think was supposed to be a surprise twist but was pretty easy to figure out from the beginning; still a great romance and happy ever after. ( )
