Mar 26, Patrizia rated it did not like it. Wikipedia in English 1 Elizabeth Thornton. But Clara overwhelms even his infallible logic, and when wedlock looms, all he can do is try not to lose his head over her. He kisses her against her will when they first meet, which she blames herself for in some misguided, bullshitty way. Extremely entertaining, captivating and interesting sexy read. Catherine seemed like a promising heroine at first but she gave in too easily and allowed self-doubts to nearly ruin her marriage.

His cousin, Charles Norton, an open-faced young man of three and twenty, looked at Rutherston with an appreciative twinkle in his eyes. When I think of it, my dear cousin, you have been in a blue funk since we set off from town yesterday. Now what can have occurred to put you in the dismals? He thought that he had a fair idea of what was troubling his cousin.

Lord Rutherston gave his cousin a sideways glance, and seeing the open laughter on his face, relaxed his own grim countenance. A comfortable silence descended, and each man was left to his own thoughts as the soft rolling hills of Surrey flew by.

He was in a blue funk, and Charles had unerringly fingered the cause. The conversation at the dinner table on that cold January evening in the year of our Lord had been all of the Regency Bill that had just come before Parliament. With the sovereign, George III, reverting to one of his mad and melancholy spells and retired once more to the seclusion of Windsor, it was imperative that his heir, the Prince of Wales, be appointed to the national helm as regent.

Too many matters of importance vital to the safety of the country had been left in abeyance, Rutherston reflected, and the British army in Portugal was suffering from lack of direction as a consequence. If he does, we can expect even less support for Wellesley in the Peninsula.

Then who will be left to clip the wings of that damned upstart Corsican? The Whigs have served their purpose. Now that Prinny is taking over the reins, he will not need their support against his father and his ministers. No, I think the Whigs may be counting their chickens before they are hatched if they expect the prince to bring in a new government.

He had squared his shoulders and set his expression resolutely, like a man about to embark on a well-matched duel. He was aware of a knowing smile exchanged between his older sister and her husband, Duke Henry, as he offered his mother his arm to lead her dutifully from the dining room.

Their interview had been brief and to the point. The marchioness had merely reminded him, as she had so often done in the last number of years, of his promise. That deuced promise! He tried to recall the circumstances that had induced him to make it. He had been a mere five and twenty at the time. It was the sense of anxiety, he decided, that had pervaded the atmosphere when he was in the presence of his mother and sister and had intruded upon every conversation.

To them, it was an intolerable thing and not to be borne that his name should die out and the entailed estates and the title revert to the crown.
