not one of her better books-also this book is set before regency times, I believe Elizabethan? The time of big hoops and powdered wigs-not my personal cup of tea. The heroine was a bit vapid, and Balogh kept using the same "slang" for that era, like Zounds and La-it became very annoying after a while.

Another brilliant Mary Balogh book. A bit different from the typical romances, Thief of Dreams goes so much further into depth of character. It'll tear at your heart, and you won't forget this story. A wonderful, wonderful story.

The book is Georgian, not Elizabethan -- roughly the same time period as Georgette Heyer's These Old Shades or TV's Garrow's Law, though I don't recall an exact year being stated. You can thank the publisher for not putting a cover on it that would have shown the characters in their setting and perhaps prevented some of the confusion.

The exclamations used by the characters were common in their day; people really did say 'zounds' (God's wounds) instead of 'wow' or 'oh ****'. One thing you can trust Mary Balogh to do is not screw up the English language :)

This book is a standalone, not related to her other two Georgian books, Heartless and Silent Melody. Although I like her Signet regencies best, her Georgians are good reads also.

Nigel has plans of his own. Plans that could break her heart. At once, he is both her worst nightmare --and her dream come true.
