Penelope Fairweather from rural Finnshire arrives in London with a hopeful heart. The dowager invites her for a season to catch a husband. Unfortunately Penelope's rustic finesse is as delicate as a fat bear ripping apart a honeycomb infested with buzzing bees. Fake mustaches, highwaymen, pickpockets, and a devilishly handsome duke follow.
I am so glad the Penny Watson recommended this charming romance to me when I was seeking madcap love stories. This is a fun clean Regency with a great make over, a notable goat, and quirky heroine you have to love. The Duke is less interesting but still a dashing figure. If you want something for sheer pleasure and love this time period, you should really enjoy this one. The end kind of comes up a little fast and I would love liked more after the I love yous but so good otherwise.
