Clarkdale has always been the ignored daughter by her father.
In fact she is treated as more of a servant than a daughter,
but in her mothers eyes she's a young lady. Pamela finds an
injured man near a stream one day and takes him home to
recover. But, as her father doesn’t like strangers he is kept
in the stables. Pamela is drawn to Kitt and after a shock one
night she is caught by her sister sharing a kiss. This causes
Pamela to be disowned and thrown out of her house. She seeks
a position as a ladies companion, and finds it with Lady
Claire. In a humorous twist of events Lady Claire turns out
to be Kitt’s Godmother.
Covington is actually an Earl, but he doesn’t reveal this to
Pamela while he is recovering in the stables. But when she is
disowned and banished he wants to step in and do the right
thing. While he has sworn off marriage he is willing to be
engaged to her to help her save face.
when Pamela agrees to the engagement she is still denied a
voucher to Almack’s. In a time when the ‘ton’ considers these
vouchers to be everything this is a blow. Things are heating
up all around Pamela and suddenly everything she knew about
her family seems to be dissolving around her, and she is
falling in love with the one man who scoffs at love, Kitt.
If you are a
lover of the historical romance genre then The
Importance of Almack’s is a must have for you. After
reading the story I just wanted to sigh. There were a lot of
twists and turns as well as secrets being held in this book,
but the author does a fantastic job of pulling them all
together in the end. This was a love story at its best. In
the end The Importance of Almack’s made me want
more historical romances from Denise Patrick.
