Talented new author Martha Kirkland makes a pleasing debut with THE MARRYING SEASON (2). A handsome baron travels to a country estate near Canterbury to retrieve his family's famous betrothal ring, given impetuously by his scapegrace younger brother to a mysterious young miss. To his chagrin, the gentleman finds himself unexpectedly drawn to the beautiful lady he mistakes for his sibling's enamorata. Ms. Kirkland smoothly intricates many classic farsical elements into this appealing Regency romance.
