Friendship…

Lady Theodora Montgomery departed Miss Emmeline’s School of Education and Decorum for Ladies of Outstanding Quality to attend her first London Season—her three dearest friends by her side. With her sharp wit and skill on the archery field, Theo is far more interested in winning a large purse prize than securing a husband. But when she is unmasked on the tourney grounds, her face exposed to all, she fears her identity and days spent gallivanting around London will cause not only her undoing, but the downfall of her friends as well.

Loyalty…

Mr. Alistair Price, heir to the elderly Viscount Melton, arrived in London with his eight younger siblings in tow. He is charged with keeping his family name above reproach until the Season starts and his sister, Miss Adeline Price, is presented to society—though that proves far more difficult than Alistair ever expected when he discovers his rebellious sister climbing down the side of their townhouse and scurrying off to Whitechapel for an archery tournament. His focus remains on saving his family from the certain ruin and disgrace Adeline’s actions invited—until Alistair catches sight of another female archer, her arrow connecting with far more than the center of her target.

And honor above all…

With Theodora’s future—and that of her friends—in jeopardy, will she agree to a marriage devoid of affection, or risk everything for the man who won her heart?

My Review

What a start to a sure to be addictive series! I stayed up to two in the morning reading the whole thing because I couldn’t put it down. I loved having the little backstory at the start because it really helped with knowing the girl later on. When Theodora and Alistair meet you just know it’s going to be an adventure with them. I loved all the archery and the girls’ reason for sneaking around and competing is a great one even if they are putting themselves at risk.  When Theodora was found out and threatened I almost screamed because of how horrible the man was.

Theodora is amazing! She’s smart, can take care of herself, and will do anything to protect her friends. I loved her from the start because she came off as quite until she was stirred up and then she was ready to fight. The way she figures things out to hit her targets is amazing and her work with maps is interesting.

Alistair is great. He has such a weight on his shoulders taking care of his siblings and taking care of the estates while his father is sick that he doesn’t think about his future. He is overprotective and has some funny ways of keeping his sister in the house, but he is very caring and loves his family.

I can’t wait for the next one and see what else happens with them all.
