He’s been warned that Lady Clarissa Crambray is dangerous. Stomping on toes and burning piffles, the chestnut-haired beauty is clearly a force with which to be reckoned. But for Adrian Montfort, Earl of Mowbray, this is just the challenge he needs. He can handle one woman and her “unfortunate past.” Can any woman handle him?
Lady Clarissa Crambray wants a husband, but maybe not as much as her stepmother wants one for her. Doffing her spectacles might make a girl prettier, but how will she see? Yet, as all other suitors seem to shy away in terror, there comes a man to lead her to the dance floor. A dark, handsome blur of a man.
Oh, this was a delightful book. It's sweet and funny and cute and even rather hot in places. Clarissa's stepmother thinks that the spectacles Clarissa needs will harm her chances of a match, and so takes them away. After a number of mishaps, Clarissa has been relegated to a chair at events. No dancing, no eating, just sit and look demure.
What I liked best about this book is that Clarissa and Adrian are definitely meant for each other.
*sigh* I just found the book to be so sweet. But since my face hurts and I want to go to bed, I'm going to end this little piece. But really, go get the book. It's a good one. And I even like the cover. It's pretty.
