Lady Susannah Haddonfield is determined that her younger sister Della has a successful Season and makes an acceptable match. All Will Dorning wants to do is raise dogs and keep his younger brothers in line. It should be simple. Yet when malicious rumors begin to circulate about Della, and dogs start disappearing from some of society's most exclusive homes, Susannah and Will need to take action, although getting to the bottom of these seemingly disparate problems is more dangerous than anyone imagined.
VERDICT A brainy bluestocking with an aversion to dogs and an earl's second son who is passionate about them are thrown together in this intelligent, insightful, deliciously sensual escapade that is marked by an abundance of delightful canines, a villain most vile, and a memorable purple parasol. A refreshingly enjoyable read with the serious topic of bullying at its core. Burrowes (Daniel's True Love) lives in rural Maryland.
