A Dangerous Compromise

By

Clarissa Derhurst is in London for her first season and is determined to a find a rake, with whom she can have a grand passion, to marry. Lord Wolviston, very much a gentleman, has just returned to London after a nine-year absence. He glimpses the beautiful Clarissa at a party and overhears her disparagement of country gentlemen. He decides he must transform himself into a rake in order to teach her a lesson.

While I enjoyed Donnelly’s first Regency, A Compromising Situation, I found the motivations and actions in this linked book (Clarissa and other characters appear in both) muddled and not particularly believable. Clarissa was a very annoying heroine – I much preferred her witty friend Jane, who, regrettably, did not have a speaking role in many scenes. Perhaps the author’s next book will revolve around Jane?
