Darn you Linore Rose Burkard! I started reading Before the Season Ends around eight o'clock on a Saturday night. I intended to read a few chapters before bed. Instead I didn't get to sleep until 1:30 am! I couldn't put this book down! Ariana Forsythe is the perfect Regency romance heroine. She's innocent with a good heart and a strong will. Her parents send her for a season in London with her wealthy aunt to evade an inappropriate suitor. Her aunt quickly warns her to give a wide berth to the Paragon of the beau monde: Phillip Mornay who is known for shattering the hopes of any woman who gives him a second look and yet is beloved by everyone who is anyone. Of course, Ariana and Mornay meet cute and then are forced to spend time together due to the machinations of an angry hostess. In the hands of a lesser author, this plot could have quickly fallen into stereotypes, but Burkard has created wonderful characters, fascinating secondary characters, and lots of twists and turns guaranteed to keep this series thrilling. Ariana's faith truly defines who she is, and everyone around her is touched by lightness that surrounds her. I really love that Burkard didn't make the antagonists caricatures or super-evil. They are simply people motivated by their own self-interests who have regrets and insecurities. I simply cannot wait for the sequel, The House in Grosvenor Square, to come out in April!<br/><br/>
