My Rating: 5 Stars
Philip Wyndham has never envied his older brother for being the heir to Edenbrooke. He would much rather carve out his own destiny than live under the constraints of that position. But when his older brother dies unexpectedly, Philip's life is turned upside down as duty requires him to give up the life he planned. Philip takes on his new role as the most sought-after bachelor in London with alternating reluctance, boredom, and resentment. But all that changes the night fate leads him to an inn, where he meets the incomparable Marianne Daventry.
My Review:
I devoured Edenbrooke years ago and couldn't wait to get my hands on this little gem of a novella to get a glimpse into Philip's head. I wasn't disappointed. Of course, I wish it was longer, but I enjoyed every minute of it and now I really want to re-read Edenbrooke.
I believe there are always two sides to a story and learning the background to Philip's life really helped me understand why he does some of the things he does. I found things to be humorous at times, but I also felt an undercurrent of loneliness, which really endeared him to me all the more.
If you haven't read Edenbrooke yet, and love a good, clean, Regency, pick it up and be sure to read this one as well so you have a better understanding of the entire story.
