Sabrina is a bit of a jaded woman. She has seen how her father's infidelity hurt her mother - but only because her mother loved him. So she has sworn off love and is looking for a man she can tolerate long enough to make an heir and a spare and then live their separate lives. But that is becoming more difficult than she originally thought. Instead of finding the one perfect suitor, she ends up with four imperfect ones - including Henry.
When Henry is re-introduced to Sabrina he finds himself incredibly attracted to her. But even though everyone is certain they will make a terrific match, she shuns him again and again. He watches her accumulate several other suitors but knows she will never really be happy with any of them. Then he realizes that one of them is a horrible person that does not have anything near her best interests at heart.
Each of Sabrina's suitors was such a different personality. As characters, they played well off of each other and really showed quite a span of male personalities. Watching her interact with them was very amusing at times, and at times very scary (especially once we figure out who and why the bad guy is). It's impossible not to root for Henry every step of the way.
This was a great historical romance. It had every element I look for in it, and I loved that it was missing the lying and hiding that tends to be a common theme between main couples lately. There was just enough intrigue and excitement and you really got to see just how fickle the ton could be. I loved every second of it.
