What I really liked about this book, is that it took a very different path than most of the historical romances I have read. Henrietta and Kesseley have grown up together in the English countryside. He is an Earl who has loved Henrietta always. She thinks she is in love with her cousin Edward. When she finds out that Edward, who has gone to London for the season, has been courting someone else, she enlists Kesseley's help in winning Edward back. You just want Henrietta to open her eyes and see the great love that has been there right under her nose.
