I love a good regency romance and this one surely kept my interest and made me smile. This book felt a bit like a breath of fresh air as it was a bit different than the usual regency's I read.
Annette is a protector. Circumstances have led her to a most undesirable place with a vicious aunt and two young brothers to take care of. Annette has shored up the walls of her heart to survive except when it comes to her mischievous brothers who are her whole world. I loved watching Annette and her brothers thrive under gentler care. The smiles and happiness that came as a result of a little kindness made all the difference. For Annette, it meant that those walls of defense slowly came tumbling down. It was a sweet process and one I enjoyed very much.
The little brothers brought humor and levity to many situations and Owen was a champion in my opinion. I just loved him. The characters really make this book come alive and the added bit of intrigue and mystery was a bonus.
This is the first book I have read by this author and I will be keeping my eye on her for future books.
