I love historical romances! I’ve read a couple of this author’s other books and liked them, and I like this era of history. This book had an intriguing premise - heiress running from a potential betrothal answers a housekeeper ad for a tycoon’s aunt & uncle. The heroine, Miss Isadora Delafield, was mildly compelling - beautiful, rich, and kind, but immature and occasionally ditzy. The hero, Mr Ian Mackenzie, was a little more compelling - handsome, self-made, and loyal. They had mild chemistry and no sizzle. The storyline was simple and sometimes silly. Overall, I liked it, but I didn’t love it.
