THE MARRYING SEASON
A heroine who is a pattern card of correct behavior, a rascal of a hero, scandal, misunderstandings and the return of previous characters round out this delectable, well written love story in the third book of Camp’s Legend of St. Dwynwen series.
Lady Genevieve Stafford is genteel, albeit sharp-tongued, and she and her brother Alec have known Sir Myles Thorwood for ages. Genevieve finds Myles kind, charming and at times irritating, but she enjoys their squabbles. When Genevieve becomes embroiled in a scandal, her fiancé calls off their engagement. Myles comes to her rescue with his offer of marriage, and it’s not one of convenience as Genevieve thinks. He soon disabuses her of that notion as he patiently teaches her the joys of the marriage bed. They join forces to uncover the culprit responsible for the scandal that continues to hang over Genevieve’s head. (POCKET, May, 416 pp., $7.99)
