I really enjoy how Loretta Chase tells a story. In this one, the secret is quite a secret, and kept me curious as to how it could possibly be resolved into a happily ever after ending. She managed, but it was a bit far fetched. But hey, this is fiction - maybe society really would be more accepting than I think.
I highly recommend for a lazy weekend getaway. :-)
Wonderful story by Loretta Chase. Darius Carsington, youngest son of the Earl of Hargate, is a handsome rake who also happens to be a scholar. Lady Charlotte Hayward, a beautiful twenty-seven year-old spinster, has a dark, dark secret in her past and doesn't want to ever get married. But when they first meet each other, there is an attraction that neither can deny.
I always enjoy Chase's books, but this one was not my favorite. The pacing seemed a little slower, and the hero's transformation was a little pat. This is not a bad book, but it is my least favorite Chase book.
This love story is not the run of the mill. She isn't the sweet little innocent virgin and there are some heart wrenching twists and turns. Fabulous love scenes and wonderful characters. Excellent book!
