Lord Fenton is a gambler and a dandy, and he will be stripped of his wealth and position unless he rises to his responsibility—one of which is to marry. Far from being a giddy groom, Fenton chooses the unobjectionable Alice Stanbridge simply because he had known her as a young girl and his mother feels Alice would make a good wife.

Alice, however, has harbored feelings for Fenton since their first meeting years ago, and his proposal is a dream come true. Not only would a match with the most-eligible bachelor in London secure her future, but it will also give her a place of distinction and admiration. Had anyone admired Alice for anything before now?

When Alice learns that she is not only an unwanted wife, but a demanded one, however, she closes her heart. Only when Lord Fenton faces the greatest trial of his life does he begin to find love beyond the folly. Could a great love come from a beginning such as this?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Real Dandy I enjoyed this read, quick and light hearted, no not really, it had a lot of deeper meaning that you will discover when you get to the end. You get great mind pictures of Charles aka Lord Fenton, so colorful and quite the dandy, and embarrassment to his family, and no regard for any ones feelings. Then you have Alice the sweet good daughter, who is chosen by a wise Mother to be Charles wife. It comes down to his father ‘s demands and his final submission. Come and enjoy how we get to this point. Alice and Charles meet when he is a teen and she a child, and she is one smart cookie, and you will enjoy the banter between them. There are lot of deep and hurtful secrets to be revealed here, and making no excuses, you wonder if a lot of people lived this way. Don’t give up on these folks a really good story is about to unfold. Enjoy! I received this book through I Am A Reader, Not A Writer, and was not required to give a positive review.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Take The Time To Explore Lord Fenton's Folly, the second book in Josi S. Kilpack's Proper Romance series, captured the Regency period well. With interesting plot developments and family dynamics as well as the author's easy writing style it was hard not be pulled into this story. The hero and heroine were at times a bit exasperating but still managed to win you over by the end of this book. Ms. Kilpack's over all end product is more than enough reason to take the time to explore Lord Fenton's Folly. *I received this ARC via Netgalley.*
