Lively and fun story of an uninhibited American ward sent to her English guardian when she is orphaned at 17. A little Unsinkable Molly Brown, a little My Fair Lady and lots of laughs.

A good read all in all. There is a secondary story line that proves to be interesting as well.

The characters were fairly well written. I wished that the hero would have been more willing to give in to his heart, but I guess it had only been a year since the death of his first love, so it is understandable.

I do like a little more detail in the physical aspect of the relationship. I felt that was the only thing that could have increased my rating on this book.

Part of a historical trilogy - The Bodyguard, After the Kiss, and Captive. All three are wonderfully written, very powerful stories. Lionel had been betrayed at the alter by another woman, and vowed never to love again. Then he meets a headstrong American, Charlotte, and becomes her captive.

American raised Lady Charlotte Edgerton shows up at the home of her guardian Lionel Morgan, Earl of Denbigh after the death of her father and the sparks begin to fly. It keeps page turning.
