Clumsy Chloe has been bullied and belittled all her life and has a chip on her shoulder, always rising to her tormenting cousin's bait, to prove herself. That aspect of this book has been discussed in prior reviews and I agree it was tiresome. It's so long ago, she should have gained some perspective and distance and ---here's a word, maturity.

Michael marries her, I think, to replenish his family's coffers, but also because he feels he can better protect her from other people. So the relationship is rather lopsided and doesn't really change all that much. Michael's father is the one to rebuke his son that there's more to Chloe than her cruel moniker, "Miss Bumblebrother." It would have been better if Michael had discovered that on his own, without being prodded.

Still, not a bad way to pass a rainy afternoon.

Reading this story, I found myself torn between two extreme reactions - appreciation and dislike. As a result I gave it the middling option of 3 stars.
The premise is one common to Regencies. The unmonied titled hero has to marry the untitled monied heroine. Here it is Lord Michael Lyndon and Chloe Russell. Chloe, alas, had been spitefully nicknamed "Miss Bumblebroth" by society and suffered for it during her season. She withdrew herself from further hurt, but now her brother and sister-in-law have arranged her marriage to Michael. He, also, has been dragooned into the matter by his father the Earl to bring in much needed money for their estates.
Chloe might be clumsy, but she's no fool and amusingly attempts to give him a disgust of her at their first meeting (where he is to propose). She also paints and is busy making a fortune unbeknownst to her family. A believable sympathetic young lady.
Michael is similarly well drawn and instantly likable - not a rake or a dandy, but a Corinthian who has been straining at the fatherly leash that has kept him from his desire to run the family estate of Chimneys.
There is instant attraction on both their parts and although both had intended to negate the whole matter, they find themselves wanting to be married.
So they marry and discover each other and their hidden sorrows. Chloes anguish as being tormented as a child by her cousins and brother is really brought far more to the fore than the tragic history that Michael hides. Really, it seemed her pain ought to have paled into insignificance at that which was haunting him and his parents, and definitely tainting his relationship with his father. Chloe kept on falling back on her clumsiness and needing constant reassurance from him, and going about quailing at her cousin Edwin. When we discovered the reasons behind this fear of Edwin, I felt deflated and asked 'Is that all?'. One suspected something far worse.
Chloe's problems just pushed Michaels into the background and his recovery through her advice was made into a few vague lines regarding unseen events. A let down. Maybe this was due to the publisher's restraints regarding the length of the book, as there were other side issues that seemed cut short to the detriment of the story and its characters. The ending itself suffered badly in this respect.
The supposedly dirty dish, Edwin, I felt definitely was hard done by. He really had the potential to be an interesting character, but was shoved aside by Michael's desire to pummel him at every turn for so much as glancing at Chloe. Why does assault and battery at the hands of the hero deserve applause, when the exact behaviour from the semi-villain curry contempt?
As I said I enjoyed most of this story - well written for the most part, good characters, a believable recreation of Regency society.

Chloe Russell, after a disastrous and clumsy debut had retired from society, keeping to herself, in order to keep the sneers of her hated nickname - Miss Bumblebroth from her ears. She convinced herself that if she wasn't exactly happy, living with her brother and his wife, her cousin, she was at least content. Now at 21, it came as quite a surprise that her brother was promoting a betrothal that had been somewhat arranged by her late father years before and his friend, to Lord Michael Lyndon, heir to the Earl of Grantham. He was a true Corinthian, athletic, handsome and titled. The fact of the matter that was while Lyndon came from an old and revered title - there was little left of the money to go along with it therefore, Chloe's dowry and inheritance was the main attraction.
Michael was not happy with the dictate from his father that he offer for Miss Russell, as he had heard all stories of her clumsiness and knew of the nickname she had been sporting since childhood. Upon meeting her for the first time, her outspokenness and candor, truly shocked him, as did her intelligence - but pleasantly so and he did offer for her. Chloe fell in love with Michael right off and it wasn't long before Michael began looking forward to spending time with her. She didn't become graceful overnight but with each other they became comfortable, and even Michael, the athletic Corinthian sharing some painful memories of a turbulent childhood tragedy.
This has to be one of the sweetest regency romantic love stories I have read in some time. I confess to have started smiling from the very first pages of this book right to the very end. The innocence and the outspokenness of Chloe was so utterly charming and honest. Michael, Viscount Lyndon, while the total opposite of Chloe was totally sympathetic, kind, and supporting of Chloe - a true knight in shining armor - even if he was the last person to realize that he had fallen in love with her. The supporting characters were all amusing and fully developed and I especially loved the part where Chloe's sister-in-law Helena tries to explain the marital obligations of the wedding night - this was an absolute scream! This was a most excellent read and will go on my keeper shelf to be re-read and enjoyed again.
