I received my copy of Dance for a Diamond by Melinda Hammond from the author through the Goodreads First Reads programSet in Regency England against the background of the Napoleonic Wars Dance for a Diamond follows the independent minded Antonia Venn as she opens a dance school despite the misgivings of those around her Determined not to rely on the charity of her relations Venn opens her dance school in Bath constantly aware that her independent streak makes her a target for condemnation and possible scandal It seems a struggle to maintain a respectable reputation as a dance school worthy of the attendance of the young ladies of Society and Venn must navigate the unwanted advances of the likes of Sir Rigby who see her as an available mistress Antonia and her comically annoying assistant Miss Chittering are modestly successful in their venture and attract several pupils eager to learn the latest dances before their London come out including the new turning dance the Waltz Antonia develops a relationship with her pupil Isabella and her mother Lady Burstock It is through this relationship that Antonia finds herself face to face with the ever dark and demanding Sir Laurence Oakford who saved her from inevitable ruin in a brothel in the opening pages of the book and sent her on her way to Bath Oakford s tortured past colours his ability to politely deal with Antonia his sister Isabella and others Prone to moodiness and a desire to dominate every situation Oakford s brash personality means that he and Antonia are constantly brushing each other the wrong way Navigating societal pressure the financial challenges of being independent her roguish cousin Charles the chatty Miss Chittering impulsive and brattish Isabella Sir Rigby and moody Oakford Antonia has her hands full Not familiar with Regency period terminology I found myself looking up terms for clothing dances and transport I rather enjoyed the learning experience I admired Antonia s independence which I am sure would have been as reckless and impulsive in that time period My only fault with the book was that at times the romance elements were so vague that I wasn t even aware certain characters had had the opportunity to develop feelings for one another until they suddenly declared their love such as with Charles and Isabella I enjoyed the sparring between Oakford and Antonia and the back handed way that she learns about his past and his personality Dance for a Diamond was an enjoyable read and I will certainly read other books by this author While there is romance blooming between the lines it is not always evident to the reader
