This is a clean romance and Barbour evokes the Regency period very well.
Helen Prestwick arrives unexpectedly from Portugal, holding a baby, on the doorstep of Edward Beresford, twelfth Earl of Camberwell. She claims that the child is the legitimate son of the Earl's late brother and Helen's late sister, and therefore he, the baby, is the heir to the Earldom.
Edward allows Helen, her duenna and the baby to stay at the ancestral Camberwell seat while he investigates her claims. He seems remarkably tolerant of Helen's sometimes shrewish and insolent behaviour, and I just didn't "feel" the romance between the two of them. The story moves along well enough, but there's something missing.

A pleasant faradiddleReviewed in the United Kingdom on 18 January 2018
But marred by poor auto spellcheck ‘named’ instead of ‘flamed’ for example is a consistent error. After various misunderstandings hero and heroine are united.
cuteReviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 October 2016
sweet little story, entirely predictable; not very witty or intriguing, but nevertheless mildly amusing...good for the commute...but where oh where are today's heyers? not here...
