This sixteenth century book is set in the debutante balls of London, England. Drusilla Clare is the orphaned daughter of a merchant king and therefore quite rich, making her an advantageous marriage. But one thing stands in the way. Her opinions. Lucinda has an opinion on everyone and everything. And not popular ones either. She believes in feminine rights, and love marriages and everything in between. Meanwhile, Gabriel Marlington is the absolutely gorgeous young man, seeked out by every young girl around. He is notorious for his escapades and mistresses. He's not so rich though and the only advantage to marrying him is the connections one could make through him.

Overall, I thought it to be too descriptive in the case of Gabriel and not descriptive enough in the case of Drusilla. Style of writing is okay, though not commendable.
