Sophia Armitage was a friend, indeed. She had agreed to help Sir Nathaniel Gascoigne find a husband for his cousin, Lavinia, in the glittering city of London-- only half hoping that she'd find one herself. Sophia knew the odds were against her. Men simply did not seem attracted to her-- not that way. Even her late husband had treated Sophia more as a companion than a lover. But then something shocking happened in London-- Sophia found herself in the arms of Nathaniel himself! Not only did this act of indiscretion threaten their lifelong friendship, it revealed the depth of passion that defied everything Sophia believed about herself.

When I picked up this book, I had wondered if it was one I’d already read. The author was familiar, but the title didn’t seem so. After reading about 20 pages, I realized why I hadn’t read this book or any of Mary Balogh’s others. Her writing is very difficult to understand. Perhaps she uses colloquialisms or speech that is familiar to her native country. I read and then would re-read and read even a third time several of the paragraphs to try and understand to whom she was referring. Honestly, if I have to re-read the paragraph even once, it’s not worth the time.
Sorry, to all fans of her writing. She’s just not my cup of tea.

Balogh is one of the absolute best romance writers because her characters are complex and real. This is my favorite--but all the others I have read have been very good--I just wish my local libraries had more of her books available, in more forms. She makes her characters real, and therefore really interesting. And she knows the rules of the time, unlike some other authors in the genre.
