The Season, Sarah MacLean

Lady Alexandra Stafford is coming out for the Season in 1815 and her mother expects her to set the ton on it's ear! However, Lady Alex, positively loathes the thought of being paraded about as if on the hunt for a marriageable young man. With her three conspirators, Lady Vivian and Lady Eleanor, the ton haven't a clue what exactly these three comrades are up to. But alas, there is a someone who catches the Lady Alexandra's eye. And it couldn't be the one that she grew up with, the one who teased her mercilessly, yet was her savior when her three older brothers were not. However, The Earl of Blackmoor, Gavin Sewell, is just that a longtime family friend and still mourning the loss of his father at the hands of a terrible accident. Or was it? Through balls and dinners and that would put Jane Austen to shame, Sarah MacLean weaves a story of romance, intrigue, treachery, familial jealousy and murder. My only issue with the story was the use of contractions. But that is albeit a very minor issue I take with the story. Alex, Vivi and Ella, have 21st century sensibilities in a 19th century world. Gavin at times reminded me of Mr. Knightley from Austen's Emma, with his wit and his dialogue of explaining his feelings for Alex. He is definitely a swoon worthy character in the same vein as Mr. Darcy, Captain Wentworth, and Mr. Edward Rochester. I found the ending dangling and hope that we are brought back to the world of Lady Alex and Lord Blackmoor soon. 5 Bookmarks
