A Facade, Not So Elegant.

I read the first book in this series by Kristi Ann Hunter and really enjoyed it. It had just enough suspense and romance to keep my mind engaged. When An Elegant Facade showed up on my radar, I jumped at the chance to read and review it. Here's what Amazon.com says about the book:
Lady Georgina Hawthorne has worked tirelessly to seal her place as the Incomparable for her debut season. At her first London ball, she hopes to snag the attention of an earl.

With money and business connections, but without impeccable bloodlines, Colin McCrae is invited everywhere but accepted nowhere. When he first encounters the fashionable Lady Georgina, he's irritated by his attraction to a woman who concerns herself only with status and appearance.

What Colin doesn't know is that Georgina's desperate social aspirations are driven by the shameful secret she harbors. Association with Colin McCrae is not part of Georgina's plan, but as their paths continue to cross, they both must decide if the realization of their dreams is worth the sacrifices they must make.

The big secret isn't all that big--but to Georgina it may have been the most significant thing in her life. Going to all the Society balls and being on debut for her London season was part of her plan to gain marriage to a titled man with money.

There are so many books like this one--a social climber wants to marry a rich, titled man to secure her place in the ton. Because this book is like so many others, at least that I've read, I had a hard time reading it through. This is a three star book.

My thanks to Bethany House Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book.
