Lord Strapshire is the most-eligible bachelor in town, and he has set his sights on the lovely Bianca Davidson. It’s too bad that Bianca finds him to be an insufferable boor. In order to deflect his attention, Bianca plans to ask Mathew Hensley to pretend to court her. The problem is, Bianca hasn’t spoken to Mr. Hensley since they were both involved in a particularly embarrassing incident years before. But he owes her a favor, and Mr. Hensley might be Bianca’s only hope.

Bianca is being pursued by Lord Strapshire and, even though he's handsome and highly desirable, she wants nothing to do with him. Her mother is determined that she is his perfect match. She becomes desperate enough that she comes up with a plan to ask her neighbor, Mathew Hensley, to act as though he's courting her since he owes her a favor stemming from "The Incident" many years ago. And that's when the fun begins!

This was a fun, quick read! It's short so can be read in one sitting, and I felt like it was a complete story (although I would have loved for this one to be longer as well). I loved getting to know Bianca and Mathew and watching their relationship develop. It takes a while before we get the details of "The Incident," but we know it was enough to make them uncomfortable around each other. This was enjoyable from beginning to end and, of course, I love that it's clean so I can easily recommend it to anyone that enjoys regency!
