Oh I felt for poor Lady Hanna Morton. You see Hanna is in love with The Honorable Hayden Banks. Pathetically in love. Desperately in love. And everybody knows it. Hayden knows it. Hanna isn't good at Latin or math or polite conversation but she's exceptionally good at being in love with Hayden. And daydreaming. About Hayden.

I liked Hanna. Hanna reminded me of a puppy. Devoted. Irrepressible. Lovable. And she's brave. Despite her faults, and they're pointed out, repeatedly, she never lost her spirit, she was honest about what she felt, about what she wanted.

Hayden is determined to avoid the trap of marriage, his mother Lady Landale, whose duty it is to see Hanna wed, is determined to see Hanna wed - to him. Hayden is a genius but doubts Hanna's feelings because he 'had no empirical evidence of her love' despite her confession of her love. Hayden is guided by logic, by reason, by things he can prove, so you know things are about to get interesting.
