An absolutely charming and adorable Regency romp! I loved that Juliana had an independent streak but still wanted to conform to society etiquette and propriety (a nod to accuracy rarely seen in historical YA novels). She was so lovable and clumsy in an non-annoying way, and Spencer was always there to swoop in and rescue her, while remaining entirely un-smothering and non-stalkery. The romance is very slow-burn, and there is plenty of London society jostling, and frequent spy action to keep things rolling along. Also, my favorite romance trope: contrived flirting/dating that turns into something real. A delight! ~Allison Senecal
