Viscount Ryecroft’s lovely sister Sophie is the family’s only hope for climbing out of financial ruin--but Rye has to scrape up the funds to take her to London for the Season, so she can capture a wealthy husband and save them all…


Their mother, Lady Miranda, will do anything for the sake of her children--even taking up again with a man she knew and loved long ago…

With so much riding on their one and only Season in London, Rye, Sophie, and Miranda can’t help but get hopelessly entangled with all the wrong people…
(from the back of the arc)

My Thoughts:

In JUST ONE SEASON IN LONDON, we meet the Ryecroft family. The family is comprised of a mother, Miranda, a son Rye, and a daughter Sophie. After the death of their father, the three are left financially ruined and it one of them takes it upon themselves to marry wealthy or in Miranda’s case, rekindle an old flame. They only problem in their plans is that they need to accumulate the funds to stay in London for Just one Season. When Rye receives an invitation from Lady Stone, it is an offer that he cannot refuse.

The Characters:

I also enjoyed the characters; they were three-dimensional and highly likable. They made you wish to see them succeed. Each one of them is determined to succeed for the other, and you get a true sense of family loyalty.

The Plot:

Well paced and well composed the story breezed by weaving a light tale filled with depth. I found myself constantly turning the page eager to see what happened next.

Overall: This was an outstanding novel that pulled me in and did not release me until the last page.

Would I read it again? Definitely!

*I do have to say that this is the second novel in Leigh Michaels’ Regency Romance trilogy and while it does stand on its own, I highly recommend that you read THE MISTRESS’ HOUSE first.
