Constance looked at marriage as an occupation, she figures it would be easier for her to obtain a job than to get married. All she has left of her broken engagement to Sir Geoffrey is the pearl necklace he had given to her. She decides she will only be able to heal her broken heart at Bath, so she and her best friend Harriet head out to Bath.

While traveling to their destination, their carriage is robbed; the only thing Constance is giving them is the necklace and throws it to the bandits. Sir Geoffrey is frankly upset, is that what Constance thought of his gift to her, she threw it away without a second thought, and she had no fear of the “bandits”.

He decides then and there to show Constance they were meant for each other and determines in the end she will agree to marry him. He soon learns he has his work cut out for him, as Constance is a stubborn little miss and she does not like to be told what to do by anyone.

What a hoot of a romance, which is surprising as the time period was Regency England, most times the Lords and Ladies are portrayed as stuffy and they have their noses up in the air, not true this time, they had wit, charm and were not afraid to own up to their mistakes to their friends and family. Constance was my favorite character she was a feisty English miss, who just wanted someone she could love and count on to love her back, she didn't think that was too much to ask for.
