The Moment Stealer

Charity Girl - Georgette Heyer In lending his aid to the struggling runaway Charity Steane, the Viscount Desford firmly embroils himself in a hash of fruitless searches, endangered reputations, and even a surprise betrothal or two. It's evident from the start who he ends up with, and you just want to see them interact more than you care about what happens to everyone else but unfortunately, the story keeps them apart for nearly the entire book. It's a pity -- Desford and Hetta seem to me to be an excellently solid pair that works off each other in a perfectly balanced way, and the book only gives a glimpse of what they're like as a pair.
