After years of abuse at the hands of her father, she hides her fragile spirit behind a facade of gregariousness. Notorious rakes can be interesting heroes. A Lady’s Point of View: How they come together, and, well this is a romance so you know they will in the end, is a delightful discovery. Well, in Regency land any women beyond 20 is basically on the shelf old But, she is of noble birth so that’s how she can still hang out and mix with the ‘ton’.
If you think one rake is very like another, perhaps you have never attempted to befriend one, with no intention toward reform or romance. This story is technically kisses only but it’s not what I would call sweet.
Much different from Lady Mary of Dowton Abbey fame. Candcie finds out Mary is richrichrich and they get engaged.

Overall, it was an excellent and engaging romance full of funny, sharp dialogue, and beautiful Regency-era descriptions. This is all very by the book but it went off the rails for me.

Aug 21, Lyuda rated it it was amazing Shelves: As his sole heir, she inherited this estate affording her the freedom of independence so rare in a Regency lady—and she rather likes it that way—since she believes that as an ugly, insignificant and unmarried lady she can do as she chooses.

So, unlike most heroine, Lady Mary is short and ugly, or so her dad says. I love her cheerfulness, despite her horrible childhood, and heatr relationship with Olivia, her companion.
Jack finds Mary to be so friendly and easy to talk to. There is sex but it’s of the “fade to black” variety. The prospect of Black Jack Raeburn sounds exciting…he sounds very clever and sly but also fun.
Sounds like just my kinda novel! Mary is verbally and physically abused by her father in hexrt of her childhood so she ehart up thinking that she is very ugly and the only way someone is going to marry her, is through her money.
