My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Slightly different from the traditional Regency Romances I’ve read, but thoroughly enjoyable. Both the hero and the heroine were delightful characters.
When art instructor Hannah Alexander agrees to accompany four of her students on a country house visit before Easter, she never dreams of entering into a dalliance with the owner David Tenant, the handsome new Earl of Brentfield. But one moment in his company and she’s in danger of losing her heart. There are secrets aplenty at Brentfield, enough to challenge any lady’s sensibilities, even those of Hannah’s protégé, Lady Emily Southwell. As events unfold at Brentfield, Hannah quickly learns that loving David comes at a price, to her future plans of being a portrait painter, to her position as a teacher, and to her very life.
This clean romance with a touch of romantic suspense was previously published by Zebra as A Dangerous Dalliance.
