Who would want to marry an escaped prisoner with no looks and no manners? Not Cassandra Davies. And it doesnít matter that the escapee is Christopher Warrender, her guardianís grandson, or that he was a prisoner of war, or that her guardian demands the union.
So when Christopher doesnít show any enthusiasm for the idea either and escapes again - this time to London Ė Cassandra is more than happy to follow him. Not to recapture him, but to find herself a worthy husband candidate and have her long awaited chance at a London Season.
And with the help of a new wardrobe and her guardianís sister she soon finds herself courted by a handsome, titled and eager marriage candidate. However itís the now polished and fashionable Christopher and his new lady friend that truly fascinate her.
It is a pleasure how both Cassandra and Christopher canít help gyrating to each other. Always there to help out the other, to show their support and offer friendship. Their love is not rushed or desired. It grows out of respect and admiration. Not consumed in passion, but simmering until needed and asked for.
I love the historical details and the feel of the era Kate Huntington fashioned. The research is obvious, but not overdone. Town Bronze is all I ask of a Regency. It is charming with wonderful characters, witty dialogues, a delightful touch of humor and a riveting writing voice. I sure will be watching out for more stories by this author.
