The many wondrous gifts of Johanna Lindsey—her fiery and endearing characters, her enthralling stories, her ingenious blending of passion, wit, and emotion—are all on glorious display in this unforgettable tale about an unwanted title and an unexpected love.

Has anyone in London ever taken part in the coming-out Season with less enthusiasm than Sabrina? Luckily, the most sought-after lady in the city has agreed to usher this young, lovely country girl through the perils and pitfalls of her all-important first season.

Dashing highlander Duncan MacTavish is even less keen to be in London. Having recently learned he is the sole heir of an English marquis, Duncan is now required to assume his grandfather's title and estates—and to marry Sabrina's ravishing, viper-tongued guide, who has been heard to make scathing statements in public about her "Scottish barbarian" groom-to-be.

His unwanted betrothal, however, has brought Duncan into close proximity with the enchanting Sabrina—a kindred spirit whose wit delights him . . . and whose essence is the exquisite stuff of dreams. But duty, station, and a secret that dwells in the lady's past forbid Sabrina's and Duncan's desired union—unless true love can somehow miraculously find a way.

The e-book version needs some very thorough editing. There is more character description of the supporting cast than the hero and heroine. The story is more ridiculous than your average Victorian; I was actively rooting against the happy ending by halfway through the book. I would skip this one and move on to some of Lindsey's later books instead.

Sabrina's comments are witty;
but wouldn't someone so observant realize that Duncan had fallen for her a little sooner? I did enjoy the by play between the two grandfathers.

Mostly it was a good ole Johanna Lindsey historical with silliness and romance, but it just didn't focus on the hero and heroine and their interactions enough. I liked the side characters and thought they added to the story, but there was too much time spent on secondary characters, when I believe it should have been spent on the developing relationship between Sabrina and Duncan. Overall, a fun, lighthearted story!
