When I first began this book and realized that the hero and heroine were on the run from kidnappers and that the hero Tarquin would have amnesia I was a little hesitant. I'm not the biggest fan of these kinds of tropes. Boy did this book prove me wrong. I loved this book. It was so enjoyable! In fact, my favorite part of the book is when they are on the run.

I completely fell in love with Terence Fish and was sad to see Tarquin regain his memory. I admit, that it took me awhile to warm up to Tarquin. I found him very pompous and quite stuck up. I did enjoy watching him transform from this type of person into someone Celia could love and trust. I thoroughly enjoyed watching him fall in love with Celia and seeing her true beauty.

Celia was a great heroine and I loved how she doesn't just roll over when things don't go her way. She is constantly thrown opstacles and it was great to see how she would overcome them all. She didn't just cower in the corner and wait for others to help her. She figured out solutions for herself. It's great to read about strong heroines, especially in historicals.

I loved watching both Celia and Tarquin fall in love. They both had such strong negative opinions of one another and it was great to see them overcome them and become more accepting and friendly towards eachother. Their love for eachother didn't feel rushed or nonexistant. I truly felt them falling in love with one another and it was great to see.

Another thing that I loved in this book was that we got to see more of Sebastian and Diana. I admit that I haven't forgotten these two at all. It was great to catch up with both of them and the rest of Diana's family. One of my favorite scenes in the book is when Celia and Tarquin show up and Diana has gone into labor and both Sebastian and Diana's father are reacting to her being in labor. It was truly hilarious and I could not stop laughing. It is definitely one of my favorite parts in the book.

After reading this book, I am extremely anxious for the next one in the series. I am really enjoying this series and I can't wait to see what happens with the other characters. Hopefully we get to see more of Diana's siblings.

I've read all 4 of the Burgundy Club books, and this one is not my favorite, but it's still a darn good book. It's as if the author set herself a challenge, to use the most ridiculous plot devices, and least compatible couple in the world, to see if she could make a believable romance out of it. And she does! If you enjoy strikingly different characters and witty, intelligent writing, you'll enjoy Miranda Neville. There is no padding in her stories, every scene is there for a purpose.
Speaking of ridiculous plot devices: this book has not 1, but 2 kidnappings, an over-the-top foreign villain, amnesia, and a mysterious and valuable missing ruby from India. Neville has a great sense of humor, and I especially enjoyed the parts set at the Montrose family manor(two of the Montrose sisters are of heroines of "The Dangerous Viscount" and "Confessions of an Arranged Marriage". The theme of the whole series seems to be 'opposites attract'.
