As her first London Season looms before her, the thought of the impending social whirl fills Daphne Lancaster's timid heart with dread. She hasn't her sisters' beauty nor their talent for conversing easily. Even her family's enviable connections may not be enough to prevent disaster. But Daphne's misery turns to surprised delight when the first event of her Season brings an unexpected visitor to her door - James Tilburn, whose tender kindness stole her heart in her youth. When the handsome young gentleman expresses his desire to court her, Daphne is elated. Their feelings for each other quickly grow, and it appears that, much to Daphne's disbelief, her happily ever after is within reach.
Yet nothing is as it seems. The couple find themselves caught in a tangled web of greed and deceit, leaving James and Daphne to determine whether they are willing to risk everything for true love.
The story was to long and boring to much description of Daphne emotion. To much time spent on Adam threats that never happens and to much of Artemis dramatic that was extremely boring and not funny at all. The book has some touching and sweet points between Adam and Daphne and Adam and his wife Persephone when he found out she was pregnant. It would have been better if more time was spent on Adam and Persephone relationship. It was like Persephone had no voice in all that was happening with her family. Based on what I read from her book about Adam and Persephone. Her character was there for her family and I can’t see her character idling in the background when her sister was hurting.
