Book Description:
A family that courts together…

Viscount Ryecroft has a beautiful sister he needs to marry off… if only he had the money for her Season in London.

His family is in financial ruins, and his mother is willing to do anything to help her children, including sell herself to the highest bidder…

Finds passion on their own…

Sophie Ryecroft will sacrifice love to marry for the good of her family… but instead finds passion and solace in an attractive alternative.

With so much riding on their one and only Season in London, Rye, Sophie, and Miranda can’t help but get hopelessly entangled with all the wrong people…


Sherri’s Review:
Just One Season in London is a fantastic Regency historical that balances three concurrent romances without it becoming confusing (or boring).  Although there are three stories going on, each story is seamlessly interwoven with the others to present a single, overall, pleasing story. However, I did find at times that I wanted to dig deeper into each of the romances but overall the affect was effective and each story is developed.

The Ryecroft family has been through a lot of suffering and all they need is the one season in London. During that Season, they need the beautiful, willful and loyal Sophie to make an advantageous and  wealthy match. What follows is clever and witty banter, humorous antics and a large dose of a slightly offbeat but loving family’s efforts to each protect the other.  I often laughed at their antics and other characters efforts to “aid” them in making the proper and correct society decisions.  Lady Stone was one of my favorite characters and she brought life and humor to the story and was a wonderful secondary character.

Just One Season in London is highly recommended for those that love Regency romances, second chances at love, clever dialogue or heartwarming love stories.
