Not one of the Bridgerton series and slightly more obvious plot than the norm for Julia Quinn. You can tell this was one of her first novels. But Julia Quinn on a bad day still beats Nora Roberts any day.

Julia Quinn is a goddess. This may not be her best effort, but then her mediocre is still a cut above.

I'm a huge fan of Julia Quinn but this book was a huge disappointment. For one, I was so tired of reading about how the "hero" was tortured over something that, in my opinion, he had nothing to really do with. I wanted to pull out my hair and scream, "Get Over It Already!!!" I had struggle to read the last few pages...in fact, I'm not sure I did read the last few pages. The story started out okay but quickly went downhill.

Lady Arabella Blydon is staying at her cousin's home in the country when she meets Lord John Blackwood. Bella finds John intriguing. He is a wounded war hero who one minute is very cordial, and the next minute he is very cold. John, who blames himself for the death of an innocent girl, feels that Bella deserves a better man. Even though he finds himself falling in love with her, he keeps pushing her away.

I really liked both Bella and John and thought they were a great couple. The only drawback with this book was that I really didn't understand John blaming himself for the young girl's death. I think that is why I couldn't quite give this book 5 Stars. Otherwise, I found this book a quick, entertaining read. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
