i found Cordelia absolutely charming. How can you not love a character that can look great, even while cheating. The scene while they're playing dice in the carriage was great!
And plus, how could you not want to have a dashing, hunky hero like Leo come to your rescue? Man, he can rescue me anytime! LOL.
I enjoyed the detail that Jane did to describe the palaces and the real characters. I'm sure she gave some twists to the personalities of Marie-Antoinette and the King; but they were definitely helpful in the describing the scene of palace life and how they were supposed to act.

one of my least favorite by her. there is just something lacking in leo. cordelia gives him all of herself (as a 16 year old no less) but he seems to share nothing with her other than physical passion. also her husband, prince micheal, is very dark and twisted. it is heart-breaking and compelling, as well as well-written, but it is not 'romantic' romance.
part of the 'charms bracelet' trilogy.
