Charity watches each of her sisters make plans to marry, one by one, and she is overjoyed for their happiness, but she doubts she will ever feel much of the same. She is busy in her causes, in her book groups, in her thinking bluestocking ways, but she has a secret. And no one knows, not even the man himself. But through all of her forward thinking ways, she is pining for Lord Lockhart.
Lord Lockhart is the wealthiest man of any of their acquaintance. He recently received yet another inheritance when an old eccentric uncle passed on and he seeks for ways to use his money responsibly. Charity is a good resource for him in this regard. And he just might have secrets of his own where she is concerned.
Rating: Mild. Mild kissing; mild (nonsexual) violence or horror.
I have been looking forward to Charity’s story. I always enjoy a bluestocking finding love story. Charity is a good person as is Lord Lockhart. And they are well suited. I was happy to see them find a way past the obstacles that were put in their way. I don’t think I’ve ever read this particular scenario in a plot before. It was different. I liked both Charity and Lockhart but they would have benefitted with some more communication which is odd because in some things they communicated really well. I was surprised to see Charity try out her feminine wiles for a while and to see her surrounded by admirers.
