Violet Somerset looks so much like her younger sister Hyacinth that the rakish new Lord Dare, in need of a wife and determined to get it over with in speedy fashion, begins to court her under the mistaken impression she is the shy musical prodigy he had heard such wonderful things about. Instead, it is the bluestocking, trouble-prone Violet who becomes the object of his perfectly inappropriate attention, which is fine by her – she wants to learn more of the world, and Dare has little compunction about teaching her things delicate unmarried ladies aren’t supposed to know. But when they are caught out, Dare insists they marry, and while Violet is furious that he has blackmailed her into the match, she is still very curious about all those things she has yet to learn… This book is just like Violet herself: amusing, maddening, improper and quite captivating. – Clara Shipman
