Review: Joanna, despite her unfortunate marriage, has managed to come out on the right side of things and is an optimistic, confident heroine. Lord Tyndale is a worthy hero with a confident, strong exterior and a soft middle nobody knew existed. They have good chemistry and it's enjoyable to be party to their conversation. Despite his misgivings, he's smart enough to pursue his feelings and she's just weak enough to consider hers. Regencies are a tricky genre given the high bar set by Heyer, but Pennington does a nice job of it in her own way. A good clean read.
