This is the story of Colin Chase, Earl of Greystone & his family. A friend of Charles II, he first set eyes on the heroine, Amethyst (Amy for short) when she was only 12 & out watching the King's Coronation. Many years have passed & he's engaged to Lady Pricilla, a prim & proper lady. Although he doesn't love her, he needs her dowry to pay for doing up his castle, which will be their marriage home. Out shopping for his sister's birthday present, he meets Amethyst & is enchanted with her & is amazed to learn that she is an accomplished jeweller.
The attraction is mutual & instantaneous. However, Amy is engaged to her father's apprentice, Robert whom she doesn't love. Days before their wedding, the Great Fire of London takes place & Amy is left with nothing: no home, no jewellery shop, no father. She is rescued by Colin & taken back to his family's home, Cainewood Castle.
Both Colin & Amy are betrothed to another so cannot & should not act on their feelings. Colin is determined to marry Pricilla, not for love as he felt abandoned by his parents when he was little. Amy is just a merchant's daughter with nothing to offer an earl. How can these two be together?
I really enjoyed this novel, even more so than "Alexandra". I thought it was very sweet. However, I found it difficult to believe that Amy was left alone with Colin on numerous occasions - what happened to protecting her honour?
what's going to happen next" they are wrong. At each turn of the narrative the outcome is delightfully crafted. The places are described so well, they become as if one knows them. The behaviour of all characters were plausible and likeable. Have a great time reader.
