Description
Charity Effington learned two valuable lessons from her first betrothal:
1) When one loses the attention of an earl, one gains the attention of every gossip in London.
2) Despite the lingering scandal, she’s not prepared to marry for anything less than love.
 
After an exhausting Season, Bath’s first annual music festival offers Charity the perfect escape. Between her newly formed trio and her music-loving grandmother, Charity is free to play the pianoforte to her heart’s content. That is, until their insufferably rude, though undeniably handsome, neighbor tells her to keep the “infernal racket” to a minimum.
 
Hugh Danby, Baron Cadgwith, may think he’s put an end to the noise, but he has no idea what he’s begun. Though the waters of Bath provide relief from the suffering of his war injuries, he finds his new neighbor bothersome, vexing, and…inexplicably enchanting. Before long, Hugh suspects that even if his body heals, it’s his heart that might end up broken.

        Starred review from April 28, 2014
        Knightley’s first prelude to a Kiss music-themed romance will delight Regency fans looking to escape London’s stuffy ballrooms. Charity Effington wants to play the pianoforte at the Summer Serenade in Somerset and enjoy Bath’s social whirl without gossips tittering about her broken betrothal. Hugh Danby, Baron of Cadgwick, seeks relief from his war wounds in Bath’s famous healing waters so that he can live up to his new baronial responsibilities. The last thing he wants is to fall in love, especially with a pianist whose music aggravates his condition. Charity is overwhelmed with a petty rival, a competing suitor, and an overbearing father, but new BFFs May and Sophie are on hand for comedy and support. Hugh alternates between letting down his guard and hurting Charity with his distance, unable to believe in his own worth. Their intricate courtship dance is supremely gratifying, and readers will eagerly await future stories of the Summer Serenade.
