Lady Larkspur will try anything to avoid her impending arranged marriage
to a much older man. Marrying for duty can't compete with marrying for love, but she can't wed the object of her affection, Dr. Benjamin Queensman. For starters, he's related to her future
husband, and he doesn't seem to be
interested in her. Then a trip to Brighton
to cure Lark of poor health exposes
her feelings to Ben. In the meantime, Lark's best friend finds a love of her own. Sharon Sobel weaves a warm, smoothly paced tale. Lady Larkspur Declines (4) is certain to capture
and retain the interest of any lover
of Regency romance. (Mar., 240
pp., $4.99)
