Excellent! Well-written narrative, charismatic characters and enjoyable romance, with a cunningly-constructed mystery. You could probably read this one without any knowledge of Liz Carlyles connected world or having read the previous two books in the series ('One Touch of Scandal' and 'The Bride Wore Scarlet' in the Fraternitas Aureae Crucis series ) but I think it would probably add to your reading experience. Its hard for me to judge, since Carlyle is one of my favorite HR authors, and I love the world of connected characters she has created and have read the books. An older George Kemble makes a key appearance in this one :).
