The Naked Baron
When Grace Belmont went to London for her season accompanied by her aunt, Lady Oxbury, it was for one reason only—she wanted to experience London and the ton before she settled for marriage with her neighbor, a botanist, who cared more about roses than he did about Grace. As for her Aunt Kate, she hoped that Grace would find a better match than the botanist. Prettier and older, Grace was also taller than the average girl, which meant most men danced face to bosom with her. The one exception was David, Baron Dawson, nephew of Alex Wilton, her aunt’s one true love. Being taller and a bit older himself, David was instantly smitten with Grace, imagining how well their bodies would fit together when making love. In order to get close to Grace, David enlists her in a scheme to reunite his uncle and her now-widowed aunt. The rest is pure Regency fun.
This is another in Sally MacKenzie’s “Naked” series, and this sort of Regency romp is her forte. Her characters are more complex than those of the average Regency romance, which gives The Naked Baron more depth. An easy, enjoyable book.
