Of Paupers and Peers

Of Paupers and Peers (Sheri Cobb South, 2006), Book #101 of 2006, is a light, quick, engaging read, the kind of story that first made me a fan of traditional Regency romances back in high school, when I read Marion Chesneys and Clare Darcys by the boatload. It's barely over 200 pages long, so the characters fall in love improbably fast, but it's a pleasurable read for all that, making playful use of those well-worn romance tropes, amnesia and mistaken identity.

That said, what I'd really like to see from South is a sequel to her mystery from earlier this year, In Milady's Chamber.
