Amelia Stalwood, for all that she is the ward of a gentleman, has only ever known the friendship of servants. When an effort to help a friend with the dusting inadvertently lands her in the arms of a notoriously rakish marquise, suddenly her life gets turned on end. In spite of her efforts to remain in obscurity, she somehow acquires influential friends, who drag her into society, whether she is ready for it or not. But what will society think of her?
I am delighted to discover another author of Christian romantic comedies, this time one who focuses on the Regency era. This was a charming novella, and even with a strong dose of humor, the author worked in a significant message on what being washed clean by Jesus really means.
I highly enjoyed this introduction to the author's upcoming series, both the story and her writing style. I will definitely not miss A Noble Masquerade! Miranda (the upcoming heroine) and the rest of the Hawthornes have been introduced, so now I am eagerly awaiting their stories too.
