Daring Debutantes, Book 1...
When Victoria Barclay, privileged daughter of the Viscount Grantham, has a life-altering experience as a young girl, it sets the course for the rest of her life. She is determined to make a difference in the world, no matter the consequence, and becomes a highwayman—or woman, as it were—robbing the rich and donating her pilfered gains to the poor.
Life-long friend and neighbor, Phineas Dartwell, Earl of Leyburn, suspects his dear friend is up to no good. She’s become evasive, and even worse, he cares that she’s become evasive. When she refuses to confide in him, claiming it’s for his own good, he severs the friendship out of wounded pride and a wounded heart.
But when Victoria’s activities are brought to light in the eyes of the magistrate, Phineas must find a way to acquit his friend—and dare he hope, future wife?—of the charges.
Nice easy fun read!
Read it in a few hours- predictable but I liked it anyway.
An okay story
It was predictable but nice enough. I would have rated it 3 stars except that:
(1) nowhere in the story did the female main character where a purple mask as depicted in the cover (her mask was always described as black), and
(2) the "climactic" courtroom scene was cheesy, IMO.
Interesting enough book. Could have been better.
