review 1: What a fun twist on the regency romance! Sophie's lameness and the loss of her mother and little sister make her feel like damaged goods going into the London season, but she is drastically underestimating her charms. Having finished "Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell" not long ago, I enjoyed the overlap of the magical elements and the Duke of Wellington's leadership in the war against Napoleon. Particularly recommend for regency romance readers looking for a touch of magic.

... moretury European society with the help of magic and a hot suitor" thing plenty of times before.And lastly–the title. It sounds like one of those 5-dollar trashy paperback novels you see in the grocery store next to the magazine rack. A No-No. less
