sadly, really bad last novel...

I hate to have to write a bad review for Miss Mansfield's last book before her death, but I must be honest in saying this book is not worth reading.

While the premise is interesting(older heroine35/younger hero 27)-the immature characterization of every character in the book had me quitting in disgust 60 pages in.

The hero's excitement with finally meeting his "Venus" 10 years after seeing her naked, then his boorish and unkind manner when he finally meets her and sees she-lo and behold-has aged is very unrealistic for a 27 year old man of the world. The author also has the hero do something very uncharacteristic in spilling his drink on a young lady he simply wants to get away from? Very unrealistic for the period-and surprising from an author who wrote many novels in the period.

I understand that Elizabeth Mansfield wrote many other, better Regency romances. Do yourself a favor a skip this one.
