I finished Victoria Hinshaw’s The Fontainebleau Fan last night. It is a traditional Regency with just kisses and much time spent on developing the relationship. It felt so unexpected that I thought for sure it must have been published in the 90s but it was published in 2002. Zebra was a good company for traditionals.
Artistic Meg find out her copy of a fan was sold as the original and she seeks Wakefield to set things right. She ends up being hired by his grandmother to paint a mural on her new conservatory. This is all well and good but though she thinks Wakefield is arrogant, he is also very handsome. Sometimes he is charming and kind. What is his real character and why does she allow him to steal kisses?
It’s a perfect Regency romance, and I haven’t read one of those in ages.
