Daphne Farnham and her fluffy little dog While the dog could be supper she’s useless Daphne can’t understand why the humorless surgeon doesn’t like her everyone likes her She’s beautiful rich and has excellent fashion. Sooooo tempted to give this a full five stars just because it was such a delight to read Loved the characters and the setting The characters had backgrounds that made them what they were even the little dog Pompom Fun read

    Such a different and fun book This was a light hearted regency The characters and setting were a bit different The hero was a staid and grumpy naval surgeon on his way home to England The heroine was an heiress who had run away with a fortune hunter who had since died and she was on her way home to England too Of course they have nothing in
