Booklist Review

When Harry Gerard, Lord Ainsworth, turns up at her door for a look at her family's much treasured painting, "The Girl with the Persian Shawl," Kate Rendell's initial reaction is to send him packing. Kate has found the implication that somehow in the past her family had improperly appropriated the painting from the Gerards insulting, but after meeting with him, she discovers that Harry never suggested such a thing and, as it turns out, her family's painting is not the one for which Harry is searching. Despite the prickly tone of their first encounter, the strong-willed Kate intrigues Harry, and Kate discovers she is not immune to the all-too charming Harry, but several other complicated romantic encounters must first be sorted out before the two of them will be free to pursue their mutual attraction. Popular regency author Mansfield gives readers another classic treat with this charmingly sweet romance, a regency notable for its polished writing and gleaming wit. --John Charles
