Miss Lydia Whitfield, heiress to the family fortune, has her future entirely planned out. She will run the family estate until she marries the man of her late father’s choosing, and then she will spend the rest of her days as a devoted wife. Confident in those arrangements, Lydia has tasked her young law clerk, Mr. Robert Newton, to begin drawing up the marriage contracts. Everything is going according to plan.
Until Lydia—and Robert along with her—is kidnapped. Someone is after her fortune and won’t hesitate to destroy her reputation to get it. With Robert’s help, Lydia strives to keep her family’s good name intact and expose whoever is behind the devious plot. But as their investigation delves deeper and their affections for each other grow, Lydia starts to wonder whether her carefully planned future is in fact what she truly wants…
This was actually a really charming read. I loved reading a Regency Romance and enjoyed the plot and characters. This was a quick read and the plot was engaging through the entire book.
The two protagonists, Lydia and Robert were interesting characters. I particularly liked the head-strong nature of Lydia in a time when this would have not been a desirable trait. Robert was an enjoyable character who was a lawyer by trade and is introduced to deal with legal matters but the two become enamoured with each other.
Overall, this was a regency romances worth the read and the multiple points-of-view made the romance all the more sweet.
