Emily Rutherford is having a very bad day.
Of course, having the man you've loved forever announce his engagement to your (now very former) best friend will do that.
Emily is sure nothing good could possibly come out of this horrid situation. But she lets her sisters--along with Francis Riley, the delectable but brooding Earl of Dunhurst--convince her that a season in London will be just the thing.
Now Emily has a choice: sulk in a corner while her sisters enjoy the glitter of the ton . . . or become the belle of the ball, dazzling everyone on an earl's arm. But as Francis helps Emily get back on her feet, she quickly realizes that a childhood crush is nothing compared to the power of true love.

1 . Loved it!
Posted February 05, 2012 by Christie G. , New York, NYI simply loved this book!
We've come a long way in this genre and this is certainly not your granny's romance novel. It's well written, entertaining and easy to follow, with just the right combination or romance, adventure and intrigue, without the overly ornate descriptions so typical of this genre(which eventually make me skip a few pages ahead just to return to the plot).
The well defined characters simply come alive and, as the story unfolds, you suffer and rejoice with each of them as you come to understand what makes them tick and cheer them on in their quest for love, adventure and a sense of purpose. The plot line is well laid out and keeps the story flowing while maintaining the reader's interest throughout.
I particularly liked this author's writing style. The book is sweet, interesting, charming and love affirming.
I truly enjoyed this book. I have the e-book version, but will be ordering the paperback in February when it comes out. It's worth keeping!
I simply cannot wait until the Sophie Barnes' next book comes out! I hope she turns this into a series.
