June Forever by Merry Farmer
This is entertaining, romantic and heartwarming. Sir Christopher is a bumbling, awkward and simple man. St. George is a charming, protective and caring man. Vicky is an untrusting, vulnerable, naive and impulsive woman who has been in hiding since an attack on her. Vicky's sister, and her friends, convince Vicky to accept a marriage proposal from Sir Christopher, even though she's not sure if she can ever let him near her. A week later they are in London for parliament to vote on women's rights and go to a masquerade ball. When Sir Christopher gets to the ball he walks up to Vicky and starts talking to her. She has no clue who he really is, but treats him as her knight in shining armor. Sir Christopher doesn't believe that she doesn't recognize him, he thinks she's teasing him. It's only way later in the night that he realizes that she really doesn't know it's him. Shocked by that knowledge, he doesn't correct her. She ends up sneaking around with St. George, because Sir Christopher can't seem to come clean, and she's too dense to put 2 and 2 together. I did like both characters, although I felt more sympathy for Sir Christopher than I did for Vicky. It ends up being very sweet in the end.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
