Kerstan is an intelligent writer capable of elegant phrasing that rises above the genre's often turgid (and tumescent) prose. These are delightful regency romances written early in Ms. Kerstan's career and the love scenes are not as explicit as has become the style. These two stories are more akin to Harlequins best light fare than to the authers current darker novels, which I also highly recommend.
