Virginia resident Benjamin Torrance is now a duke currently residing in England. He asks Lady Pamela Sinclair to marry him after he forgives her for her transgression of having an affair with Edward Tremayne. An irate Pamela loves Benjamin, but rejects his proposal because she feels she did nothing wrong in her relationship with Edward who as single at that time.
Pamela's friend Amanda Detweiler knows that Benjamin and Pamela love each other and belong together. She begins a matchmaking campaign with the help of Lady Millicent, who happens to be Big Ben's probable future fiancée. It will take all her skills and perhaps a miracle to bring this stubborn duo to their senses This seems like an impossible task since these would be lovers differ over Edward and neither one wants to compromise their viewpoint.
The third Amy Lake Regency romance is a fun tale that fans will enjoy especially those who read the previous two books because many returnees play key roles in LADY PAMELA. The story line remains inside expected sub-genre rules, but feels fresh because of the two angry lead protagonists and an amusing, often sardonic Amanda. The Regency audience will look forward to more tales starring other cast members, especially when Amanda meets her match.
