"Alistair Carsington -- wounded Waterloo hero, third son of the Earl of Hargate, and a dismal judge of female character -- is commanded by his father to find a way to be self-supporting within the next six months (either by finding an occupation or winning an heiress) or risk impoverishing his younger brothers. He then heads for an isolated corner of Derbyshire to see a botanist about a canal and is confronted with the one thing he can't resist: a beautiful, desirable woman. On the other hand, Mirabel Oldridge, intelligent, independent, if rather sartorially challenged, has enough to deal with in managing the estate of her plant-obsessed father and isn't about to let a charming dandy, however heroic and handsome, distract her."--Library Journal

Loretta Chase is so good at what she does. I love how well-matched her heroes and heroines always are, I love the amount of period detail she always includes (this time, the main conflict between the two lead characters is over the building of a canal, and you can tell Chase did her research on the economics of the time), and oh, man, I love her dialogue so. much. This was charming, like all of her books, and from the very first page Alistair and Mirabel (which, as a side note, might be the most hilariously over-the-top romance character names I’ve read in a while) were so obviously engaged in a battle of equals. I love romances where the power dynamics feel equitable, and that was definitely the case here. Highly recommended for historical romance fans!
