I had a hard time putting this book down. The H/H both have strong (but likeable) personalities, storyline is decent. Upon reflection, Jack is being added to my list of favorite hero. I hate spoilers, so that's all you'll be from me :)
I started out unsure because I'm not so much a fan of Regency and the Ton. But I have to say I loved this book! I could not put it down. Jack is definitely a tortured hero but he is to-die-for. You won't be sorry you read this book.
