Sin & Sensibility by Suzanne Enoch

Yes, I am still on my historical kick. This is the first in a 4-pack about the Griffin siblings. Suzanne Enoch creates a family where you can feel the connectedness between them, as well as get a glimpse into the personalities of the individual members. I like them all. This is Eleanor's story, the only girl in the family of the Duke of Melbourne. Wanting to be free to pick her own husband and feeling something is missing from her life, she declares her independence from her overprotective brothers. She is seeking she knows not what, but wants a grand adventure before she is required to settle down.

They cannot stand that she may get herself into trouble, so her brother, the Duke, enlists his best friend to "watch over her". Of course, he becomes her adventure.

This is a fairly light story - no deep penetrating emotions evoked, and I thoroughly enjoyed it for what it is. Suzanne Enoch wrote perhaps one of my favorite historicals, England's Perfect Hero, which is incredibly intense and emotional, so it was nice to (re)read a light story by her. She does both equally well. Thumbs up on this one.
