REVIEW: Her Fateful Debut By G.G. Vandagriff

Classic Regency romance with a dash of suspense . . . 
Beautiful Miss Penelope Swinton wants to live out her life as a 

spinster in her beloved Northamptonshire, but with an ailing 

father and an entailed estate, she must come to London and enter 

the Marriage Mart. And if she must marry, she is determined to 

marry for love. 
In a brief respite from the social whirl of the season, she 

retreats from the restrictions of the ton to sketch in the park 

and stumbles over a French spy. When Penelope finds her life in 

danger, Viscount Beau Wellingham steps up to protect her, 

however he has secrets of his own. Wellingham leads a 

clandestine life as an agent for the Foreign Office trapping 

spies. In defending her life, he unwittingly puts her reputation 

at risk. 
In order to save Penelope from society’s scorn, Beau presses for 

a betrothal. Though she resists, he insists. Soon Beau is unable 

to deny the attraction he feels towards her. Before he can act 

on his feelings, danger rises again. This time, his life is on 

the line. 
With a desperate spy closing in, Penelope must choose the safety 

of what she has always known or a chance for love. But will she 

be too late? 

I love the regency romance novels that I can find. This one was 

amazing and i absolutely love this author. It was so amazing 

that she added the spy twist to this romance gave it a lil more 

action and pep to it.

Penelope of what can you say the poor girl is so stuck in the 

eyes of society. What is and isnt right and finding her way 

through it all.

Beau what an intriguing man with so many secrets to unravel 

throught out this book. He is a wonderfully romantic type 

character and falls hard and fast for this girl. But worries 

about what he has gotten her into because of his life.

A must read for anyone into romance novels.
