This is one that I picked up as a freebie Kindle download, and at the time of writing this post it is still listed as available free HERE. Obviously, if you are reading this post retrospectively that may have changed.
Medium length - 257 pages.

This is the first time reading a Lucinda Brant novel, and I have to say I was impressed from the very beginning.
She has a very Georgette Heyer'esque style, although lacking any cant humour, which if a similar could have been added would have made this book perfect.
Well developed and written plot, with interesting multi-layered characterisations.
I am definitely going to be reading more by her, and can't wait to get my hands on the next in the Roxton series, Autumn Duchess.
All considered a very worthy 5 stars for this exceptionally well written offering.
