The review --
I so totally loved this book. The story is simply wonderful. When Tessa sneaks off from the ball, she gets more than she bargained for - an engagement. The Earl of Arlington has a liaison with a lady friend of his, but little does he know, they're not alone.
How it all works out, and their engagement, and their discovering they have more in common than they know, it all makes for a wonderful romance story that I simply adored.
