4 of 5 stars
I enjoy Ms. Bradley's books and was happy when this book became available. In this book, we get to see the youngest of the Somerset sisters. Hyacinth Somerset’s debut does nothing but fill her with dread. Painfully shy, and a stammer when she's nervous, Hyacinth can't think of anything more frightening than being exposed to the ton. When she first sees Lachlan Ramsey, she swoons after calling him a murderer. Such is the introduction to Society for the Ramsey siblings which she soon learns is part of her extended family. When she must admit her mistake, she wants to crawl into her bed and forgo her Season altogether.
Ms. Bradley slowly teases out the back story of why the Ramsey siblings were forced to leave Scotland and Lachlan's true heritage. I loved how Lachlan supported Hyacinth and encouraged her to stand up for herself. It was fun to watch Hyacinth grow from a frightened young woman to a woman who knew her mind and what she wanted. The pacing was good and the story moved along well. I can't wait to read Isla's story. Fans of regency romances will enjoy this story.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review and was not obligated to leave a review.
