The Rake and the Redhead and Lord Dancy's Delight are two wonderful stories by Emily Hendrickson that Signet had put into one book for her readers. Neither story is overly long, so each is a joy to read on a sunny afternoon.
In The Rake and the Redhead, Lord Norwood has made the decision to tear down a charming old village just to improve his view of the countryside from his manor. Of course this unfuriates Miss Hyacinthe Dancy beyond words. With a personality as fiery as her hair, Hyacinthe places herself in Norwood's path, only to find that his desire matches her temper in intensity.
This was a very cute and charming story. Norwood meets his match when confronted with Hyacinthe. They are a hoot!
In the next story, while returning to London to claim his new title, Geoffrey, Lord Dancy saves Miss Amelia Longworth's life not once, not twice, but three times and he is relieved to finally arrive in London whole and hearty. But now Miss Longworth is determined to return the favor of saving her life, even if it means disrupting Geoffrey's affairs and capturing his heart.
Lord Dany's Delight is my favorite of the two stories. Geoffrey and Amelia are like two star crossed souls that just need a little shaking up to find each other. Amelia has a perchance of getting into trouble and Geoffrey somehow always rescues her. Their romance is fun and exciting and will have you grining from ear to ear.
A womderful book for Emily Hendrickson fans. This will be a definite keeper for your collection!
