When Pippa’s father dies, she learns he was an earl — and that she is illegitimate. Part of her inheritance is a London Season, although she must masquerade as her half sister’s cousin.

Provincial Pippa knows nothing of rakes and routs, and she fears repercussions should Society discover her deception. In this sweet Regency romance, Pippa must remain faithful to herself as she navigates the ton and seeks a husband. But if she does meet a man she can love, will he be able to overlook the circumstances of her birth?- Goodreads

*Short review for a short read*

This is a very short story; 4 chapters, 78 pages. So it is a decent read in between your reads.

If you are expecting development of character or intense emotions or even a fight, it doesn’t happen in this read. It is very straight forward and the romance leaves a lot to desire. I wouldn’t say that it is insta love but the I loves you are thrown fairly quick and overall the men and selfish human begins.

Pippa is intelligent, strong willed and honest. Which apparently aren’t qualities you find in women of her time. Compared to her sister, she sticks out; only if she speaks. Other than that she is considered that beautiful plain. But to the point,

I don’t necessarily have an issue with this book. It is extremely short, so things move very fast and there isn’t a whole lot of build up. One thing I give this book credit for it does its best to stay away from predictably. Considering how short it is, I was surprised that everything I thought would happen didn’t happen, exactly how I thought.

I didn’t necessarily want more from this world or book. It was just a decent filler between reads. My recommendation is read it because you are curious because if you decide to read it because of hype, you will be disappointed.
