Reluctant Bride / Companion of Quality

(A book in the Steepwood Scandal series)
An omnibus of novels by

So far the best of the Steepwood Scandal books. A riveting combination of family honour, reluctant romance, intrigue and attempted murder set in Regency Britain. While following the traditional lines of all good romantic novels - the feisty heroine, the dark and brooding hero, the niceties of the genteel society of the time - the book raises the reader's awareness of the social background of the period by including historical events that shaped the socio-economic development of Britain in the early 19th century. The plot is excellently thought out, with enough twists and turns to keep you riveted until the last page. It also progresses the underlying subplot of the missing Marchioness with some well-placed nuggets of information - building your curiosity of what actually happened in Steepwood Abbey - which the previous book in the series failed to do. Overall, an exceptional and pleasurable read - highly recommended.

Genre: Historical Romance
