The Blue Devil
The Regency Matchmaker #1
Melynda Beth Andrews
Kathryn St. David is starting her London season at her Great aunt Ophelia Palin's house. She arrives late to the Masquerades ball thrown in her name. She enters the house through the backdoor and decides to clean herself up after a long trip. She goes to the room she thinks has been assigned to her. While in the room she witnesses an exchange between a man and a woman. She makes a noise and runs away before she can be discovered. She misinterprets the situation and believes the man (Nigel Moorhaven, Marquis of Blackshire) was taking advantage of the lady. She is able to find the right room and proceeds to dress as the fairy character, Titania from A Midsummer Night's Dream. She decides to interfere and save the reputation of the lady. Later she declines to dance with the Marquis.
Her Great aunt discovers that she has lost her diary at an enemy's home, Lady Marchman's School for Young Ladies. Kathryn assumes the identity of a teenager while trying to recover the diary. To her surprise, Nigel's ward becomes her roommate.
Blackshire has placed his ward there to investigate a possible traitor exchanging secrets with France.
Funny situations prevailed.
