      This is one of those cute, light, frothy Regencies that I love to read The heroine s antics are hilarious.I had a hard time liking the hero at first, but he slowly grew on me and I liked him better by the end of the book, but I didn t really care for him as much as I liked the heroine It made it a bit hard to root for their romance.Overall, a fun, light Regency read.
