Soon after her arrival, Eustacia meets Lord Ilam. The two are attracted to one another, and Ilam even takes her to meet his foster family, who farm locally. But it is only after the arrival of Eustacia's estranged fiancé and the unexpected appearance of Lord Ashbourne that matters can be resolved in a way that is satisfactory to all parties.
I enjoyed this book. It developed slowly which was surprising because it is not that long of a book. It reminded me quite a bit of a Georgette Heyer book. The plot is not driven by action but by words and by people meandering through their routine lives. It wasn't remarkable. It wasn't unforgettable. But it was very enjoyable. If you like Heyer. I think you would like this book.

Anne Baker certainly isn't Georgette Heyer, but Ms. Baker does possess a clear writing style that surpasses many contemporary regency romance authors. It isn't a standout book but overall, a pleasant listening experience without gross sentimentality or hyper-sexuality.
