It's warring nations, dueling philosophies and the battle of the sexes as American-born Miss Liberty Baylis takes on Simon Lansing, Viscount Brodham, in the fight for her friend's happiness.
Brodham wants only to retire to the peace and quiet of his country estate, but he'll take on the cheeky American chit if that's what it takes to keep his nephew safe and happy.
The war is on . . . but when banter and flirtation become weapons and kisses disrupt strategies, will Brodham and Liberty ever wish for the battles to end?
Not the usual US/UK H/H conflict
There are differences in behavior between the American protagonist and her English ‘opponent’, but they are minor, and not overblown because the pair are reasonable intelligent people, not given to histrionics. Thus far no main characters are given to them, for which I am grateful. Throwing a paperback at the wall is one thing, but doing the same to your electronic device is yet another!
There is a description of a color of Cossack trousers which seems to have been lifted from The Devil Wears Prada, which I found amusing.
I certainly enjoyed this story. I think you will too.
