I liked the H/H and the story. I even liked getting a feel for this period in England. I usually read stories that take place in Regency England. However, I think Ms. Royal got carried away with her research. We get the history/background on just about every dish they ate, every town/hotel where they stayed, and every clothes they put on their bodies. In addition, we started learning the English for Scot phrases/adages. I am still planning on finishing the series. I usually do.
