I love this genre, although Ms. Richmond went beyond the usual to add a mystery that made it even more interesting to read. Geoffrey and Lady Harriet were wonderful characters. Although young, Lady Harriet knew what she wanted and took the opportunities that she had available to get it- or him. But she didn't force it or use the sometimes typical 'wiles' of the era. She was honest and straight forward. Geoffrey saw her more as a friend's little sister, at first, anyway. The more time he spent with her, the more he came to see her quite differently, but still saw her as too young. Of course, as they worked together, he saw her maturity and strength of character made her the perfect match for him.
Loved everything about the story. Can't wait to read more of the series.

Lord Geoffrey Clarence heroically saved the life of his best friend, Charlton Edgeworth, Viscount Pendholm, and six other people. He was then recruited to work covertly, in defence of crown and country – which resulted in the Prince Regent gifting him a substantial estate. Unfortunately, it came with a dangerous mission as a side ‘benefit’.
Lady Harriet Edgeworth decided, at first sight of Lord Geoffrey, that he was the man for her, her hero. In the year since, nothing has changed her mind. When Lord Geoffrey moves to an estate close to her home, she is delighted, and soon finds a way to volunteer to assist with the inventory of his new property.
Can Lord Geoffrey keep his mission secret, with Lady Harriet there every day? Can Lady Harriet convince Lord Geoffrey to see her as a woman, not just Charlton’s sister? And, if he does, can he keep her safe in the midst of a treasonous conspiracy?
