Her Aunt Allegra said, A young lady with a fortune is subject to all sorts of untoward attentions by the worst sort of vagrants.

It is a lesson Tabitha Timmons, a penniless spinster, has never needed to heed. That is, until she is left a vast fortune payable only upon her marriage to the very respectable Mr. Barkworth - a match that offers little chance of discovering exactly what her aunt means by untoward attentions.

But the same can't be said when the Duke of Preston happens along Tabitha's path. He spies a rebellious streak in her that matches his own, and he makes it his mission to save her from such a passionless match, interfering in her life at every turn. All too soon, Preston - whose very name spells ruin - has Tabitha caught between the good fortune that guarantees her security, and his kiss, which promises an entirely different kind of happily-ever-after.

    " I am so glad that I didn't stop reading this book. I was tempted to stop early on when I felt like the main characters were not very nice and the book was moving along a bit slow. Then, BOOK, the story took off, I started to fall for the characters and the story became a fun ride. I will read the next! Thank you Elizabeth Boyle! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbi | 2/19/2014

    " Part of this book's appeal is that it read like a movie from the 1930s about the Regency period. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 2/19/2014

    " This is a good sweet romance with strong Cinderella elements. Preston, as in Duke of Preston, and Tabitha, a vicar's daughter, meet accidentally in her small village. The attraction and slow build of the romance were well written as is the fun, fast paced dialog. There isn't anything new here - just a good historical romance. But I look forward to read the next two in the series featuring Tabitha's friends Daphne and Harriet. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Barbara | 2/7/2014

    " Really pretty awful. There is simply no plot at all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Vilarino | 1/26/2014

    " What a pair, the rapscallions Dukeand the feisty Tabby. And Mr muggins was a hoot. Enjoyed reading the book but at times I found it a little bit slow going. "

    " This was a fun book with several laugh-at-loud scenes which I loved. It seems to be the beginning of a trilogy, and personally, I can't wait for the story of Harriet and Lord Roxley. (Note: since I listened to the audiobook I've no idea how to spell Roxley!) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clarissa-anne Teo | 7/7/2013

    " Couldn't really capture my attention but it was a good book nonetheless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsten Lenius | 7/3/2013

    " As always, Elizabeth Boyle gives us a lovely Regency period romance with engaging characters. This was an enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 ishie | 6/14/2013

    " Took a few chapters to get into it (oy, the Regency patter) but then it was all delighted giggles and cheerful insults to everyone's intelligence. Great way to completely neglect everything I meant to do this afternoon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noelle | 6/7/2013

    " I loved this book, can't wait to read the others. I loved Tabitha Timmons, and the Duke of Preston, enjoyed the story very much and the characters were charming. Like this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karyn Gerrard | 5/30/2013

    " Not a huge fan of light-hearted Regency romps, but this read was just what I needed. Also, the tawny haired hero, the Duke of Preston, was wonderful. Leaned a little too close to farce at the end, but all in all, enjoyable though few scenes went on a little too long. Definitely recommend~ "

    " Slow plotline. I found it terribly difficult to like the characters. They were just... kind of bland. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maya | 11/22/2012

    " It took them too long to get together, it drove me crazy. Otherwise great tale. Read in one sitting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel C. | 11/1/2012

    " The plot was a kind of a madcap muddle. Also, a historical romance writer should know that "a bit of muslin" is used to describe prostitutes, not ladies. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Claudia | 9/14/2012

    " Very little chemistry between the barely likable characters. No steam at all. Very disappointing! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie(babs) | 8/19/2012

    " Cute read and Preston is a doll. If you like Julie Quinn, you'll want to pick this one up. "
