Reader Review: This was a fantastic book .The earl had grown up on the streets and I could not help laughing at his insisting that he only wanted a certain lady as his bride,although the lady was determined not to marry and had already told him so.Certainly one of the best romance books I have ever read. I highly recommend it. Candace camp can you please hurry up with the other 2 books in the series.I keep checking but so far nothing.I can hardly wait.
Lady Irene Wyngate swore she'd never marry, keeping suitors at bay with her caustic tongue. But there was one man she couldn't scare: Gideon, long-lost heir to the Earl of Radbourne. He had been kidnapped as a child and grew up tough on the London streets. And though he had been restored to his family, he was still more at home in gambling dens than stately ballrooms.
Irene isn't attracted to Gideon, or so she says when matchmaker Francesca Haughston asks for her help to civilize him for marriage. After all, he is a true rogue with a dubious past. A handsome rogue, she has to admit, but as she reluctantly begins to yield to love, wicked family secrets come to light with devastating consequences for the reluctant lovers.

The Bridal Quest
Irene covered a sigh as her sister-in-law continued her descriptionin detailof the gown she had purchased yesterday. It was not that Irene disliked talk of fashion; indeed, she was fonder than she cared to admit of conversations regarding styles and colors and accessories. It was listening to Maura converse about clothes that bored Irene to the point of unconsciousness, for anything Maura discussed was ultimately more about Maura and her own taste or perspicacity or beauty than it was about the subject at hand.
Maura was, quite simply, the sun around which all interests and all people circled, at least in her own mind. She was unremittingly self-centered, which Irene would not have minded so much if she had not been thoroughly dull and prosaic, as well.
Irene glanced around the room at the faces of the other women. None of their three visitors, she saw, looked as indifferent or bored as she felt. She wondered if her own expression conveyed as little of her inner reaction. It was difficult to tell, no doubt because all the well-bred ladies had been brought up, as she had, to convey a polite interest in other people's conversations, no matter how tedious they were.
Irene's mother, Lady Claire, was one of the women now listening to Maura with a pleasant and interested look on her face. She would, of course, have considered it bad form to have allowed any other expression to mar her features, but Irene knew that more was involved; her mother was frightened to express a dislike for, or even a disinterest in, anything her daughter-in-law had to say. For the past year, ever since Humphrey had married Maura and brought her back here to live with them, Lady Claire had walked on eggshells, knowi...

I loved this Candace Camp novel! Gideon and Irene's story is fun, Irene is very witty and determined not to marry and Gideon is determined to marry her. Francesca does a great job bringing them together and you have to wonder if they don't have clue what she is doing or if they want to be together but can't say so. Either way, it is a great love story!

I like Candace Camp's books because of the substantial plot lines and multi-dimensional characters. I also like that scenes and interactions have some meaning and aren't a pretext to jump into bed. Although the miraculous returned-to-the-manor-after-years-away-because-of-a-nefarious-kidnapping-and-now-he-must-be-polished-for-the-ton story has been done, I think this book was saved by Gideon himself, his"match", Irene, a stubborn woman with no desire to wed (ever), the secondary characters (Odelia, Maura, Jasper), the truth behind Gideon's kidnapping and, of course, the tension between Lady Francesca and Rochford. It was a pleasant was to pass a few hours.
