A Sapphire Season by Lynn Morris

Saturday, August 15, 2015

Lynn Morris, bestselling author of The Baron's Honourable Daughter, once again sweeps readers into the Regency era with striking period detail. Lady Mirabella Tirel, the beautiful daughter of the Marquess of Camarden, takes a practical approach to love since a dashing captain broke her heart at age 17. Now at almost 22 years old, she has decided to endure one last London season to secure a suitable engagement and begin a simple life in the country. Sir Giles Knyvet is Mirabella's oldest friend and her most dependable ally, and he is also secretly in love with her. Yet he knows the prospect of a relationship is doubtful: Besides being a mere baronet, he aims to settle a large family debt before sharing his feelings with her. But as Mirabella draws close to a suitable match, Giles may need to interfere to buy himself more time.

Goodreads Summary

This was a cute book and would have made for a good garden read.  Mirabella has decided not to marry for love and instead looks on the more practical side of things.  Giles, on the other hand, is in love with her and wants to marry her, but cannot due to his financial circumstances.  He tries hard to find a way to keep her from settling for one of her other suitors.

I thought the book was cutesy and a sweet read.  Mirabella wasn't my favorite character, but she was fun to read about.  I did enjoy the historical setting and attention to detail that the author paid.  Giles was a kind love interest.  I thought it was sweet that he didn't want to burden her with his financial problems...but honesty is the best policy!  This book is recommended to adult readers.
