The gowns, the dinners, the dashing young gentlemen ... every young lady dreams of experiencing a taste of life amongst the nobility.

For Catherine Taylor, the dream becomes a reality when she is invited by her uncle Sir William Cavendish to stay with him and his family in their charming village of Barnbury. Four weeks of fine parties and  even finer society, all in the idyllic Somerset countryside - there surely could be nothing more enjoyable.

However, life in Barnbury is not quite as Catherine expected. Between the wild Viscount Russell, his flirtatious sister and the rude Professor Lawes, tension mounts and sparks fly between the younger members of society, as Catherine begins to realise that the noble life might not be quite so 'noble' after all.

Love this already. You've done a great job with the period language and details. I can picture Broxcliffe Park vividly and it's just like something from a BBC Jane Austen adaptation. Look forward to meeting the wild young gentleman ;)

After reading so many historical fiction books, I finally found one that really grabs my interest, and that's pretty rare! I love your style of writing. :3

I'm utterly confused as to why such a well and accurately written story would have so little votes. I've been on the hunt for a story like this for a while and so far I've enjoyed it very much. I plan on reading on :)
