APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
We love a heroine who doesn’t wait to be rescued, so thank you, Anna Bennett! The first book in her Debutante Diaries series introduces us to Fiona Hartley, who is anything but a typical damsel in distress. When a blackmailer threatens to ruin her sister, Fiona decides to secure a husband who can protect them both. She targets David Gray, the earl of Ravenport, who’s shocked to be on the receiving end of Fiona’s marriage proposal, but undeniably drawn to her. A crumbling estate, mysterious letters, and a villain hiding among friends add a dash of intrigue to this tantalizing Regency adventure.
