“A Maggie Robinson book is like the best kind of chocolate: delicious and totally addictive!” —Vanessa Kelly, USA Today bestselling author
In Maggie Robinson’s sparkling new series, the quaint village in Gloucestershire is where the wayward sons and daughters of Great Britain’s finest families come for some R&R—and good old-fashioned “rehab”. But sometimes they find much more . . .
No one at Puddling-on-the-Wold ever expected to see Sarah Marchmain enter through its doors. But after the legendary Lady’s eleventh-hour rejection of the man she was slated to marry, she was sent here to restore her reputation . . . and change her mind. It amused Sadie that her father, a duke, would use the last of his funds to lock her up in this fancy facility—she couldn’t be happier to be away from her loathsome family and have some time to herself. The last thing she needs is more romantic distraction . . .
As a local baronet’s son, Tristan Sykes is all too familiar with the spoiled, socialite residents of the Puddling Rehabilitation Foundation—no matter how real their problems may be. But all that changes when he encounters Sadie, a brave and brazen beauty who wants nothing more than to escape the life that’s been prescribed for her. If only Tristan could find a way to convince the Puddling powers-that-be that Sadie is unfit for release, he’d have a chance to explore the intense attraction that simmers between them—and prove himself fit to make her his bride . . .

Delightful Regency Romp!
This is the first book by this author that I have read and I have really been missing something because the humor in her writing is extraordinary and wonderful! I am already looking forward to reading other romances by Ms. Robinson. The hero (Tristan Sykes) and the heroine (Sarah “Sadie” Marchmain) met in Puddling-on-the-Wold where Sadie was sent by her father to stay until she had mended her stubborn ways (i.e., not marrying as her father dictated). Tristan was the leader/director of the Puddling Rehabilitation Foundation that was intended to retrain the spoiled, socialite residents that came to stay at the Rehab Foundation. While Tristan at first recoiled from the hoydenish tendencies of Sadie, he soon came to respect her and the reasons she acted the way she did. And then it became a courtship of sorts with ups and downs because of Sadie’s distrust of Tristan’s motives in being kind to her but which merely made Tristan try all the harder to win her affections. Hilarity ensued throughout the ups and downs of this courtship and I laughed out loud at both Tristan’s and Sadie’s antics while they journeyed to their happy ever after. In short, it was a truly delightful book to read!
