A lifelong love of American history led Deborah Schneider from teaching high school to writing novels. "Beneath A Silver Moon" won the Molly award for “Most Unsinkable Heroine” from the Heart of Denver chapter of RWA and was later a finalist in the New Historical Voice Contest and published by Dorchester Publishing. “Promise Me” won the EPIC Award for Best Western Romance. Deborah is employed by the busiest library system in the US. She’s received the “Open Book Award” from Pacific Northwest Writers and was named “Librarian of the Year” by Romance Writers of America in 2009. She writes steampunk and fantasy romance as Sibelle Stone.

Delightful and sometimes hilarious romance. The leading lady is a great deal more prissy than most historical romance characters, and that counterpoints wonderfully with the rough world she's found herself in. She's also a meddling know-it-all busybody; again, not common personality traits for a heroine, but they work well here.
I especially liked the details of her treatment of the hero's damaged younger sister, and how a strong set of ethics about How Things Should Be Done allowed her to both recognize the problems and start finding solutions.
