“Regency Romance with a modern sensibility
I love Regency Romance, but I adore Tessa Candle’s books. Unique and totally relatable heroines, irresistible love interests, and a cast of family, friends and villains that thoroughly captivates.” – Ev Bishop, USA Today bestselling author
The earl finally finds his mystery woman—will he lose her forever to his enemy, his best friend, or his own dangerous mistake?
London-hating dreamer, Lydia Norwood, has failed spectacularly as a débutante. Now an encoretante whose family has lost a fortune, Lydia discovers that the beau monde is hard on a nouveau riche social climber, particularly one who is no longer riche and only wants to climb trees. Lydia must stave off the effrontery of rogue lords and conniving competitors long enough to make a good match, or else incur society's scorn by being so scandalous as to earn her own money. Falling for the unattainable Lord Aldley is a distraction she cannot afford. But they share such an enchanted history, how can her heart resist?
The tragically virtuous Earl of Aldley is tired of ambitious families hurling débutantes at his head, but cannot hide in France forever. He returns to London to seek out the mysterious tree-climbing girl who once saved him from a scheming chit, and finds more than he bargained for. Abductions, seductions, trickery and injury all endanger Lydia, but Lord Aldley's heart is imperiled beyond rescue. He has only just found her—will he lose her forever to his enemy, his best friend, or his own dangerous mistake?

Good story overall. But the ton of the last quarter doesn’t really match the tone of the first three quarters. We go from innocent blue stocking and prudish noble, to brazen no longer so innocent young woman and go for it earl. Idk. And the side stuff with Tilly and Rutherford is also a bit sodden. It just didn’t feel like it lead into the events of the last quarter very well. Instead of developing, the story jumped. Considering it’s length, I consider this quote the feat. But overall, it’s an interesting story, if a bit drawn out.45
Long book. Well maybe not to long but sure seemed liked it. Had some really good parts in it. However, Too much stuff between the main characters with other people that distracts you from Adley’s and Lydia’s story. Not much romance in it until almost the very end.35
