How has beautiful, popular Amanda Smythe-Kincaid managed to reach the ripe old age of twenty-five without getting married? Could she possibly still be carrying a torch for Jason, her brother's best friend? It's been years since they were caught kissing in the conservatory.

Jason, the third Viscount Greyshott, has been in love with Amanda for ages. Too bad he can't convince her of that fact, and too bad she repeatedly turns down his marriage proposals.

When Amanda asks Jason for a shocking favor, he realizes this may just be the opportunity he needs. And when fate, in the form of an exasperated older brother and some inadvertent eavesdropping, finally steps in to bring this charming Regency couple into each other's arms—where everyone around them knows they've always belonged—Amanda doesn't stand a chance.

Barbara Burke takes the best of the traditional Regency romance and spices it up in this fantastic tale of two people who are so right for one another and cannot see what is right before their eyes. Jason is the epitome of the perfect English gentlemen of the time. Amanda has just enough spunk to keep her from being a very boring miss but she still embodies all the charm and the appeal of wholesome Jane Austin heroine. I loved the story which could have come across as boringly clich├ęd but these two characters bring it to life with freshness and originality in the way they embrace their situation. I cannot wait to see what else this author has to offer because I enjoyed her style and creativity. If you are looking for little more heat with your sweet than this Regency romance is for you.
