Is she an innocent or not? Prudence Mallow, weary of the poor relation role, discovers her calling in writing novels. Modest, sincere novels, not the scandalous fare of Lord Dammler’s Cantos from Abroad. Drawn by the rakish marquis into the hotbed of London society, Prudence finds herself in way over her head--and heart. Regency Romance by Joan Smith; originally published by Fawcett
Tears of joy
I've been reading a lot of hist rom, and have become numbed by the general mediocrity. Thank goodness I came across this book, it was a jolt to my system like a shot of adrenaline straight to the heart. Utterly brilliant, delightful, lol funny dialogue. Wonderfully well conceived plot (and plot within a plot, don't want to give away too much...) if I can give 6 stars I would. Loved it so much, will buy the physical book to add to my "good books" bookshelf. Why are you hesitating? Start reading already!
