Whee ... this has a hint of Susan Johnson to it. If you can slip past a kinky little juvenile (pun intended) quasi-erotic bedroom scene, the rest of the story will hold your attention. But, it only gets truly interesting in the last chapter when the plot finally starts to heat up. Unfortunately, it's only to wrap up the story!
Not one of her better stories, in my opinion, but still better than many of the other offerings in this genre.
Oh, I did enjoy this one; a little more meat to it than the usual Regency romance and angst. An independent businesswoman (waaay before her time)finds romance and passion with a rake. Throw in a little foreign intrigue, a splash of patriotism, some interesting secondary characters, & you have a thumbs-up. Enjoy.
One of my favorite authors. She writes a great story with loveable characters. Her writing is fast-paced, has lively dialogue and with the great sexual tension everyone loves with a romance. I am looking forward the the rest of the trilogy!
Excellent! Almost as good as her debut novel, My False Heart, which I think IS superb.
Excellent book--can't wait to read the next in the series!
