In 1851, Cecilia Paring has serious reservations about marrying her fiancé, Devin Montlake. Gone is the boy who could capture her heart with a word or a glance and in his place is a man who has made it clear that to be a proper barrister's wife, the exciting and impulsive Cecilia must change as well.

Although Devin Montlake loves his orderly life as a barrister, he's determined to follow his roadmap to achieve his goal of becoming a judge. His biggest obstacle seems to be convincing his headstrong fiancée to fulfill her social obligations with a modicum of propriety.

But when the jewelry collection belonging to Cecilia's family is stolen the night before it is to be auctioned off and Devin is framed for the crime, he discovers that following his much-loved rules won't solve this particular problem. He'll need the inventiveness of his irrepressible fiancée to catch the thief.

Cecilia stood up, plucked one of her discarded dresses off the bed, and hung it in one of the wardrobes, shoving her other dresses aside haphazardly. “Devin isn’t the type of man to lower his standards. He expects me to raise mine and conform to what society expects a barrister’s wife to be. And I’m trying. Truly I am. Did I tell you he wants me to take comportment lessons?”
“What?” Evangeline’s look of outrage made Cecilia feel better. “But I thought he loved you…why would he want to change you?” Evangeline looked genuinely worried.
“Why indeed?”
“I know he’s always been a bit stiff-necked. It’s just his way. As I recall, his parents are exactly the same, aren’t they?”
“They’re even worse. Maybe I’ll be lucky and tomorrow’s auction will be a failure and Devin will break our engagement.”
“Don’t even say such a thing,” Evangeline scolded. “You’ll bring us bad luck.” Then she pulled at her bottom lip with her thumb and forefinger as she she lowered her brows. “Do you really think Devin would do something so low as to throw you over?”
“No, of course not,” Cecilia said, brushing the question away with a casual wave of her hand. “It was just a bit of wishful thinking. He can’t back out. That would be breach of promise. He can’t afford to have a black mark like that against his name. Just think of the damage it could do to his career. He wants to become a judge. Did I tell you that?”
Evangeline plopped  onto the edge of the bed. “Then I suppose you’ll need to take those comportment lessons.”
The knot of tension in Cecilia’s chest tightened. “I suppose you’re right, which is why Devin thought of it.”
“Of course I’m right. I might be the youngest person in our family, but I’m also the most sensible one.”

My Review:

My Rating: ****

Steam Factor: !!!

Cecilia and Devon are getting married soon. Both starting to wonder if they're right for each other, although at this point there's not much they can do about it. Solving a mystery together helps them see the truth. Very sweet. I thought the characters were great and I enjoyed the bit of mystery and historical setting. A quick, enjoyable read. I loved it. 

About Sheridan Jeane:

Join Sheridan as she explores the clash between the old and the new.

Sheridan has always loved books, history, and stories about amazing people who blaze new trails.

Despite naming their daughter Sheridan because they thought it might someday look great on the cover of a book, Sheridan's parents urged her in a more practical direction for college. Sheridan earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science with a minor in English.
