There was a silence in the book-room, not the silence of intimacy but a silence fraught with tension
Nell is in a little spot of bother. An issue of rescuing her brother from his debts and her own expenses means she is in debt herself. And she doesn’t want to tell he husband, Cardross has told her she must be debt-free by the end of the quarter. But in the process of attempting to pay the bill she gets herself in even more bother. And then there is the problem of Letty, her sister-in-law, determined to marry despite her intended’s lack of fortune.
It’s a Heyer romance, you really should know what to expect. Plenty of drama and miscommunication leading to even more drama and trouble. But in the end everything will work out and the couple who are so suited will realise this and get married. Only in this case the couple are husband and wife at the beginning of the novel.
As usual, very readable and enjoyable.
