Sophia Harlow is attractive and young and scarred by being jilted at the altar. She has moved away from her village to London and now writes a column about weddings for a popular newspaper.

Lord Brandon, the Duke of Hamilton, is handsome, rich, and scandal free. He feels the weight of his responsibilities and is very staid and sober. He will be marrying the perfect Duchess shortly.

Sophia’s wedding column is very popular with the Ton and she and the other Writing Girls have escaped the stigma that would usually come with such a profession. What no one knows is that she actually hates weddings and is very uncomfortable until the couples actually speak their vows. Brandon is going to be part of one of those couples shortly and is very content in his choice, until he is captivated by Sophie.

This is one of the best historical romances that I have read this year. The two main characters have undeniable chemistry and have a lot of obstacles to overcome. The subplot of Clarissa and her prince is almost as gripping as the main storyline. The author has a fine command of all aspects of the Regency era despite her heroine’s unusual profession. Her descriptions of the people, places and customs of the era bring the story to life almost as much as the wonderful story she weaves around Sophie and Brandon.
