What a treat! A rare heroine who is truly goodness and grace... unafraid to try to help those around her and right injustice. "Arabella" is innocent, yet brave and strong. She doesn't give a fig about impressing the ton, which makes her a breath of fresh air.I loved Beaumaris' gradual change from trying to mock her and having fun at her expense to a true admiration and love for Arabella. It's a gentle romance, and while Arabella still seems a bit young, to me, for a 30-year old man, it seems that Beaumaris won't mind a bit helping Arabella to mature into a grand lady.Loved the dog, Ulysses! Love that Arabella puts family and those who need help first, despite what the ton might think. Loved this book!
