A delightful oldie but goodie from Quick. Although her usual tropes are comforting they can be stale in some incarnations of her work, although this charming book is not among them. Despite having the alpha take charge hero Quick usually employs she also gave the hero a wonderfully complex backstory with a sweet, indulgent streak. Her heroine is much in the way of her usual bluestocking, take no nonsense style but Harriet is also wonderfully naive in some regards. This in combination with an engaging plot and several twists and turns makes this is a great, comforting read. Quick at her very best.
