This book had an OKAY plot. I think I'm getting a bit bored of this same scenario with the girl dressed as a boy and running away and the one who makes himself the guardian falls in love. I don't know if I could swallow the age difference. Perhaps If i was able to feel them more. What I mean is, you know when they each fell in love but you don't feel it with them. You still find the situation a bit awkward. Atleast I did. This one did not keep my attention as well as the others. This would make a great 1st book to read of Georgette Heyer. Since I've read so much better, it could be that I expect more. :) Still, it's a quick read and good.
