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.
A Sapphire Season was such a sweet story to read. Mirabella and Giles have grown up together and have a very close friendship. So naturally when the season starts they decide to go to London together with two of their friends. Mirabella has a plan. In lieu of marrying for love, she makes a list of all the best possible matches she thinks would be suitable. She soon discovers the list may not be the greatest idea and it isn’t so easy finding someone you are compatible with. While she is narrowing down her list of potential suitors, Giles has been busy himself, catching the eye of a particular woman that ends up making Mirabella a little jealous.
I really enjoying Mirabella and Giles together. They had a fun witty banter that showed perfectly how close they were. Though I would’ve thought one of them or both would’ve realized their feelings a little sooner than they did.
Sometimes love comes unexpectedly and to a person you might have never thought that way before. A Sapphire Season is a good example of that. The story was easy to follow and the characters were likable. I’m a sucker for good historical fiction romances, especially involving childhood friends. If you enjoy reading clean historical fiction romances then you will want to take a look at A Sapphire Season.
RATING: 3½ out of 5.
