Description
Kit Smith, honoring her father's dying wish, has moved to London to pose as the niece of Rose Singleton, a member of the ton. Kit can't imagine what influence her gambler father exerted to bring about Kit's introduction into polite society.

Hugo Devinish, a second son, went to sea as a cabin boy and is now a prosperous merchant and ship captain. He decides to attend a party in town to check up on an heiress that his young nephew is courting.

Meeting Hugo at a party, Kit wonders why he wishes to dance with her—until she overhears him explaining his mission to a friend. Kit muses that they must be talking about her. So, the family watchdog has been dispatched to investigate her, eh? Kit thinks it's not very charitable of him to describe her as "a chit with more hair than conversation." But more than that, she wonders why he thinks she's an heiress? Still, if he wishes to dance with a simpering simpleton, she can well oblige him!

For a Harlequin Romance it was well done   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

I've read several Harlequin romances, but this one was definitely different from the majority. The characters had a good sense of depth and the plot also had a focus beyond the romance. Kit is also smart, charming and capable for a Josei protagonist, something that almost seems foreign in the genre a lot of the time.

The development of the romance was well-paced with good chemistry from the start but not jumping straightaway to love at first sight. The art was also decently pleasing.

All in all, I enjoyed this one quite a bit. For what it was, it was solidly done.

I have to agree with the previous comment. This manga is really good. The characters have depth, and the love between them grows naturally. Apart from a few anachronisms, completely enjoyable.

This is so much better and deeper plot than other Harlequins!! The girl's got a goal and the power the achieve it. Not some blushing weak girl waiting for her knight but can get out of dangerous situations by herself. Definitely recommended.
