After a humiliating first season as a debutante, Dianna Trowl is back and determined to bag herself a husband- even if she has to break social convention to do so. Lord Southridge longs for nothing more than a woman who stands out from the crowd, one who isn't afraid to speak her mind. Determined to find himself a wife this season it seems as if all his prayers have been answered the minute that Dianna walks into the ballroom...
This is a short and sweet historical romance, and as an introduction to Vayden's work it worked a treat. Southridge is just perfect - tall, blue-eyed and charismatic- whilst Dianna is a quirky heroine. I liked how even in such a short story we got narrative from both of their perspectives, it made it seem all the more romantic.
4/5 stars: a wonderful little read that I would recommend to any historical romance fan.
