Book Description from Goodreads:
Independent and spirited, Miss Annis Wychwood gives little thought to finding herself a suitable husband, thus dashing the dreams of many hopeful suitors. When she becomes embroiled in the affairs of the runaway heiress Lucilla, though, she encounters the beautiful fugitive's guardian - as uncivil a rogue she has ever met. Although chafing a bit at the restrictions of Regency society in Bath, Annis does have to admit that Oliver Carleton, at least, is never boring.

My Review:
Lady of Quality is a Regency romance. The author used her excellent understanding of human nature to craft realistic characters and a fun story. The different personality types rubbing up against each other created the humor and relationship tensions in this story. There was a nice level of historical detail woven into the story.

There was no sex. There was some explicit bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this humorous romance.

If you've read this book, what do you think about it? I'd be honored if you wrote your own opinion of the book in the comments.
