Another mediocre piece of lesbian fiction, although slightly better than some I've read. The story had so much potential and it was wasted. This author would have benefited from an editor that demanded the story line and plot be fully developed and extraneous words be eliminated. There was so much potential for the Alex character,I was disappointed that her background was only slightly addressed, a whole chapter could have been written on it alone.
Alex has been on her own since the age of eighteen. Her life is physically harsh and demanding, but she lives as an independent woman.
Lady Cassandra, on the other hand, is bound by the suffocating rules of her Regency world. She is on the marriage block, her suitor the arrogant Lord Alfred Cavanaugh.
What could be less likely than the flowering of passionate love between two women from such vastly defferent worlds? What could be more hopeless?
Appalled by reports of his daughter's visits to the stables, Lord Stonehurst banished Alex from the Manor and arranges for Cassandra's marriage to Lord Alfred - putting an end, he thinks, to his daughter's recklessness. But he has gravely underestimated the courage of these two young women determined to make real their impossible dreams.
