Can Miss Tavistock’s mistake ever be undone?
Young Miss Tavistock is promised in marriage to Captain Rempeare by the wish of her dearly departed papa. But the captain’s been at sea for a decade. When she finally meets him, tempestuous sparks fly, and she impulsively adopts a daring false identity. Going by “Lady X,” she vows never to marry such an infuriating man.
Captain Gabriel Rempeare is prepared to fulfill his duty and marry Miss Tavistock—if only he can clap eyes on her. One circumstance or another keeps them apart, though he cannot seem to avoid the maddeningly lovely Lady X. When fate throws them together in London, Miss Tavistock discovers the real nature of the captain, and regrets her subterfuge. But can such a noble man forgive deceit? Or has her mistake already cost her everything?
My thoughts: This story was a lot of fun, with it's nod to Jane Austen and The Importance of Being Earnest. Miss. Tavistock finds herself caught within a web of deceit of her own making when she makes a rash decision to go by a different name to avoid Captain Rempeare. I would of liked for things to not be quite so dragged out with her charade, so we could of had more time with the story after she reveals who she is. That said, this book is still a delightful Regency story to pick up!
I received this book from Celebrate Lit. This is my honest review.
