Her Fateful Debut: A Regency Romance
Book Description:

Classic Regency romance with a dash of suspense . . .
Beautiful Miss Penelope Swinton wants to live out her life as a spinster in her beloved Northamptonshire, but with an ailing father and an entailed estate, she must come to London and enter the Marriage Mart. And if she must marry, she is determined to marry for love.
In a brief respite from the social whirl of the season, she retreats from the restrictions of the ton to sketch in the park and stumbles over a French spy. When Penelope finds her life in danger, Viscount Beau Wellingham steps up to protect her, however he has secrets of his own. Wellingham leads a clandestine life as an agent for the Foreign Office trapping spies. In defending her life, he unwittingly puts her reputation at risk.
In order to save Penelope from society’s scorn, Beau presses for a betrothal. Though she resists, he insists. Soon Beau is unable to deny the attraction he feels towards her. Before he can act on his feelings, danger rises again. This time, his life is on the line.
With a desperate spy closing in, Penelope must choose the safety of what she has always known or a chance for love. But will she be too late?

Andrea's Review:

Her Fateful Debut is entertaining and a quick read. I liked how the spy aspects of the story kept things very interesting.

I liked Penny's character. She didn't fit the mold and was a good match for Beau. It was unusual for this genre that he went by his first name to everyone, but it made him more likable than someone who just goes by a title. Other than his past, he seemed like a good, moral character.

I prefer what some would call squeaky clean books, and this wouldn't fit in that category, but it is fairly clean. There was a swear word, casual mention of affairs, and some passionate kissing.

Tarah's Review:

I'm going to admit right up front that my view of this book was probably skewed by the last book I read by this author. I will also say that this book was a whole lot better than the other one I read of hers, but because of that other one I went into this with maybe not the right perspective. 

It was cute. It was quick, and other than me not really liking Beau (I'm not really one for rogues) I finished it with no problems at all. I'm not sure why I'm "eh" about it. Maybe because the characters didn't feel very deep to me (although, with the Ton being a factor was anyone really deep? But that is beside the point). I don't know. There just wasn't really anything for me to really sink my teeth into.
