Get it at Amazonfrom our DIK review: The Pursuits of Lord Kit Cavanaugh is a delightful read that took me back to Lauren’s earliest, subtle Regencies, with the added fillip of strong, sensual protagonists that her readers have come to expect in recent years. Something else that I enjoyed - learning about the titular ‘pursuits’ of Kit Cavanaugh and his love, Miss Sylvia Buckleberry. Sylvia and Kit are acquainted; they were paired up, as bridesmaid and groomsman, at the wedding of Kit’s brother (Randolph) and Sylvia’s friend (Felicia) in The Designs of Lord Randolph Cavanaugh, the first of Laurens’ Cavanaugh series. The wedding isn’t a pleasant memory for either of them. Kit Cavanaugh - a gorgeous physical specimen - was Sylvia’s beau ideal during the less-than-memorable years she endured the London Season. How sad, for Sylvia, that Kit’s stellar looks were matched with a disreputable, rakish demeanor. Or so she thought. Given her unhappy memories of London, Sylvia was chilly and dismissive to Kit at her friend’s nuptials. For reasons that are explored and explained in The Pursuits of Lord Kit Cavanaugh, Kit deliberately adopted the persona of a bon vivant during his years in London. Only recently has he felt emboldened to pursue his dream: “Kit is all business and has chosen the bustling port of Bristol to launch his passion—Cavanaugh Yachts.” Of course, it’s inevitable, following the immutable laws of romance, that Sylvia will be awaiting in Bristol: “Miss Sylvia Buckleberry’s passion is her school for impoverished children.” Imagine her shock and dismay when she is told that she has a week to find a new location for her school and that she is being displaced by Lord Kit Cavanaugh! Sylvia is not prepared to meekly accept her fate: she storms the barricades.
