Book Review: Her Fateful Debut

Her Fateful Debut
Goodreads Summary
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? 
I loved this book! Can I have more clean, Regency spy novels please! I could read those books all day long! Like can they make Mission:Impossible movies but set in the Regency period? Yes please! Anyways, this book took me longer than I anticipated to read, mostly because school is busy. The spy aspect wasn't as present in the book as I was hoping, but I still loved the book. Penelope or "Pen" (I seriously swooned whenever Beau called her that) was such a good heroine. She was realistic and I just loved that she had a passion for learning and drawing. I really wished there was a book or even a short story to follow this one in which it shows her married life. It would be fun to read about her exploring Somerset. Beau was so dashing, even with his dandy disguise. And the fact that he knows jiu-jitsu is so awesome! Five stars for this book!

I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
