Dutiful Jessamine Barry is tired of waiting patiently for a man to decide her future. So even though Lancelot Marfleet, second son of an aristocrat, is taking an interest in her during the London season, she refuses to consider him as a suitor. Instead, she's ready to take fashionable society by storm--and finds a rakish young man all too willing to help her do it.
Can Jessamine trust her heart to lead her to a love that proves true through thick and thin? Or will her rash actions close the door on the life she really desires?
First of all, can I just say that I love the name Jessamine? It's so pretty. In fact, I loved all of the names and characters in this book. I picked it up last night for some before bed reading and didn't put it back down until I'd closed the back cover. Jessamine, damaged by a past relationship, is searching for her place in this world during a time when your place was determined by who you wed. I don't know that she really broke all the rules, but she did what she could to get herself noticed and it led her to places she never ever considered. Again, another book that I sighed when I closed the back cover because I wasn't ready for it to be over. I hope that the author comes back to these characters, not just Jessamine and Lancelot but Rees, Megan and Celine as well.
I received a copy of this book for the purpose of this review. All thoughts, comments and opinions are 100% my own.
