I always love reading Georgette Heyer novels with their charm, witty dialogue and handsome Regency heroes. No one else captures the Regency era as well as Heyer.
Sylvester, the rather arrogant Duke of Salford, is looking for a suitable wife. His invalid mother suggests Phoebe Marlow, the daughter of a close friend, but Phoebe has taken a dislike to the Duke, and she has other plans... Nevertheless, the Duke finds himself somewhat intrigued by this admittedly plain girl who stands up to him, and makes him laugh. When she runs away with an old friend, he discovers that he is anxious to help, and they start to enjoy each other's company even more at a snowed-under country inn, but Phoebe has a secret, which could ruin everything...
Any lover of the popular Regency series "Bridgerton" or historical romanceswill enjoy this book!
