3rd in the series. They are meant to stand alone, but I do suggest to read them in order.

Excellent book. Although there was a little part near the middle that seemed to drag just a bit, I really enjoyed reading it.

The hero (Duncan) and the heroine (Margaret) meet by fate and with a short courtship, marry. This took up a good part of the story and afterwards would normally seem to be the end of the book, but the relationship continues to develop. And as has been the case with this series, the conflicts don't tend to arise simply because of lack of communication. Although it does cause some discomfort caused by "secrets", it doesn't control the majority of the story line. (That is a personal pet peeve of mine:)

The characters' personality were strong and honest and likeable. I would recommend it as a good read.

I gave the book 5 stars because it is a great read and also a Mary Balogh series book. I have loved all Mary Balogh books since the Signet series.
This book is about the oldest Huxtable sister who gave up her chance of a life of her own to raise the 2 sisters and brother. Finally it is her turn to have romance and get a life of her own. Be sure to read the other 2 books first. They make the story complete.

It was refreshing to read one of these historical romances were the "hero" actively works are falling in love as a goal. Usually it seems it is something he does not want until it smacks him in the face.

Great book! This is the first one I've read by this author and I loved it. It was not like your normal romance story - the woman was actually older and had more life experience; she was not a pushover. I like that the couple was actually friends first, letting love take its natural course. I highly recommend this book.

I've read the first two books in the Huxtable Series but this one so far is my favorite. I could not put it down until I finished it. It is absolutely a wonderful story.

Maybe I would have been more invested if I was reading the series in order, but it just felt very repetitive and predictable to me.

Best of the series so far. Good characters with more plot and complexity and intrigue than in the first two installments of the Huxtable family. I really like Meg and Duncan - and Toby; really can't stand Crispin; was intrigued by Duncan's situation and really liked the situation as that unfolded. I enjoyed the complexity of this story. I look forward to Stephen's tale.

Hooray! With the first three books of the Hustable Quintet, Ms. Balogh has finally and beautifully acknowledged the fact that sexual tension before marriage can be just as exciting, if not more, than the consumation - especially in 19th century England. This fits so much better with factual history than her other works where she imposes 21st century morality on 19th century society. Her writing is just as wonderful and these stories are just as riveting while actually being historically correct!
