To Love a Lord - Michelle Pennington

Synopsis: Patience doesn't have a fortune to permit her the luxury of being selective in her matrimonial choices. So when she gets a love note from the rake she's been crushing about, she's more than looking forward to the upcoming house party she hopes to meet him at. Meanwhile, Lord Stanton has come to appreciate the hidden gem the beautiful Miss Wendover truly is. Now that he's also managed to get invited to the house party, he needs only prove to her he's worthy of her attentions.

Review: A debut regency novel for Michelle Pennington, but we can only hope there are many more in the works. She's done a good job of preserving the regency world while keeping it lighter than a Heyer can be. We can appreciate that, while it's definitely a contemporary regency, unlike many authors, Pennington doesn't water it down by constantly explaining the ins and outs of the period. Patience is a lovely heroine who is no simpering miss and is mature enough to see the reality of her situation quickly. She makes good choices and more than deserves her HEA. Stanton is a worthy hero who keeps his head about him while falling for our Miss Wendover. The supporting characters round out the story nicely and add to the entertaining adventure. A good clean, fun regency.
