Back Cover Blurb:

All’s fair in love and politics…

When ambitious solicitor Norman Wynford-Scott is ousted from his legal studies due to a holiday revel spun out of control, he adapts a new plan of running for the Parliament seat of a local village. Only trouble is, the same irresistible woman who ruined his good name is thwarting his campaign at every turn.

Widowed and drink-addicted, Lady Elsa Fay has retreated to the family village of Fleck to regain her sobriety. She’s distracting herself from her troubles—and her memories of the one passionate night she shared with Norman—by organizing the Parliament campaign of her husband’s cousin. Until Norman arrives intent on winning the seat for himself.

Shamed and determined, Elsa will do all she can to send her former friend and now adversary packing—even if it means breaking her own heart in the process.

My Review:

Boyce is a very descriptive author. Everything comes to life in such a major way. It combines well with this fast paced, exciting tale. it starts on a high note and keeps pace throughout the entire novel. Politics and intrigue mix with chemistry and a great deal of misunderstanding for a fantastic outcome.

Elsa has quite the unique characteristics for a heroine in a historical romance. It was very original and absolutely unforgettable. I love how the author uses her to purposely flaunt the social conventions of the time. Norman, on the other hand was so precious. He was so unsure of himself yet perfect in almost every way.

This novel was exciting, comical and enjoyable. Boyce definitely makes history fun here!
