This was a quick read. Lady Miranda Archer has had her debut season. She is trying to do what is right for her family and live up to their expectations. Her family is no stranger to scandal and she just wanted to be the normal child. So she picks a man who has been pursuing her all season that by all appearances would be a good match. Her sister has been pushing for him and her family approves…except her brother.
However, there’s a problem. Miranda doesn’t really like him. She doesn’t know him all that well, and there’s just something about him that strikes her as “off”. She would prefer to be marrying Gilbert, who is a second son and destined for the armed forces. The problem is that she doesn’t think anyone in her family would support that match.
Miranda begins to understand what marriage to her selected fiance would mean and tries to get out of it.
There’s not a whole lot of depth to the characters, but I would be interested in reading more from this author. I enjoyed the book and it was a great little read during all of the holiday chaos.
I was provided with this book from Edelweiss. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.
