Lady Belling's Secret




      Lady Belling's Secret
Lady Francesca Bellings has been madly in love with her older brother s best friend for as long as she can remember and, of course, the object of her affection never considered her much than an annoyance in braids But while Thomas Wallingham was off fighting Napoleon, she grew up Now her life is moving along in all the expected directions of a well bred lady of the ton, but a chance encounter with her first love throws everything into turmoil From a young age, Thomas Wallingham escapes the crushing apathy of his own parents by spending as much time as possible with his best friend s family In order to avoid a messy scandal, he enlists in service of the Crown, disappointing his adopted family by going off to war When he unexpectedly inherits a title, the new Earl of Harrington returns to London desperately hoping five years of estrangement can be forgiven All his plans are cast asunder when he rediscovers Francesca Thomas finds that he can think of little else than the willowy flame haired beauty After a heated encounter and giddy with romantic feelings, Thomas plans to ask for her hand in marriage but is devastated when a nearly hysterical Francesca tells him she is already engaged to be wed to the Marquess of Dalton in less than two weeks Loving him than she ever thought possible, Francesca is terrified of repeating a scandal that nearly destroyed her family But if she thinks that Thomas is going to go away quietly, she is sadly mistaken Endeavoring to be in her presence as much as possible, Thomas chips away at her resolve to honor her family and her commitments, and they find it nearly impossible to keep their hands off each other even as her wedding date draws devastatingly nearer.The problem of a fianc who won t disappear is compounded by the discouraging fact that Thomas comes to discover the man is not the evil, lecherous brute he d imagined, rather a great fellow he comes to genuinely like and respect But just as soon as Thomas can finally see a clear path to all he desires, the wrath of his best friend, Francesca s brother, crashes down on them As the date of the wedding draws menacingly closer, it s only by the machinations of unexpected parties that clear the way for Thomas and Francesca to be together But even then, it will only work if Thomas can overcome the diminished self worth beaten into him by his father, and Francesca can accept the actions of a man who loves her even if he can t say the words.

    Honestly, it was Ms Bright s humor that snared me.She created delightfully flawed characters I adored Thomas and Frankie Even the secondary characters, right down to Thomas s butler and the dogs were truly likable.So, there were a few historical inaccuracies They certainly didn t detract from the clever dialogue, the hysterical introspection, or a beautifully crafted story I found it to be a romping ...

    Amylynn Bright s writing reminds me of an early Julia Quinn She has the same light, humorous touch A littlematuring and she will be a great writer.The reason though that I couldn t award the fifth star is because of the odd historical mistake, and the most egregious is right in the title t...
