I liked the story here and I liked that the woman didn't have to be virginal! :) I didn't however think the other characters were expanded on very well, especially since there is supposed to be a series of these books. I will read the rest and hope they improve.
Wow, the author has finally written a book that was disappointing to me. This offered a humdrum storyline with flat, one-dimensional characters.
I really liked this unconventional post-Regency, early Victorian-era story of Gideon Pearsall and Judith, Lady Chester, a widow. He's 32 and she's 30; both have vowed never to marry again. But it seems this couple was struck by a "lightening bolt." I look forward to the next book in this series.
I have all of the books in this series on my TBR. And since I really, REALLY need to trim my TBR, somewhere in the back of my mind I was hoping that I wouldn't like this book and could take the entire series off my TBR.
Well, for the first 100 pages or so, it looked like I might get my wish. This is one of those books where the hero and heroine fall into bed first, and fall into love later. Even though there was lust aplenty in those first hundred pages, I wasn't feeling the passion. And the witty banter seemed .... forced. But then their emotions FINALLY got involved in the story and both characters started to seem much more human. I devoured the rest of the book and can't wait to finish the rest of the series.
I love this book. It is the first of "The Last Man Standing" series.
