Miss Caroline “Caro” Braithwaite was deemed an “incomparable” during her first London Season and leaves in the middle of the season without explanation to the ton, her parents or friends.

The truth? Despite all of her suitors, there was one she was interested in more than the others and he suddenly became engaged, and she isn’t nearly as interested in the others.

When a good deed turned into a engagement and then a broken engagement, the last person Edward “Ned” Fitzhugh, the Duke of Beverley, wants to see at a house party is a woman he courted and would have offered for if he wouldn’t have proposed to another woman.

At the house party, despite their misgivings and desires to protect their broken hearts, Caro and Ned learn more about each other. However, Ned’s broken engagement becomes a messy entanglement he wants to clean up finally before committing again and other misunderstandings (and lack of clear communication) thwart his budding of a relationship with Caro. Who knew that deciphering social cues and flowery language was so difficult in the Regency era?

“Miss Braithwaite’s Secret” is the third in Utah author G.G. Vandagriff’s Regency Trilogy and includes characters from the previous two books, "The Duke's Undoing" and "The Taming of Lady Kate."

I'm surprised Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson is not on this list.

One of my favorite love stories is one men enjoy too: The Scarlet Pimpernel.
