WITH HIS LADY'S ASSISTANCE
A delightful Regency romance with a clever and personable heroine matched with a humble, but intelligent hero. The mystery is nicely done, the romance is enchanting and the secondary characters are enjoyable to get to know.
Captain Jack Dryden has been recommended to discover who has made two attempts on the Prince’s life. To do so, he must be able to mix with the ton, and spinster Lady Daphne Chalmers is chosen to teach him the ins and outs of society. To keep their true goal secret, plain, bookish Daphne will pretend to be the extremely handsome Jack’s fiancée — something even her own family finds difficult to believe. Yet, as they work together to investigate the attempts on the prince’s life, they find their fictional attraction becoming a reality. (CHERYL BOLEN, Apr., 256 pp., $9.98)
