I enjoyed it- 4 stars. More of a traditional Regency style than Putney's older books. I like stories where the hero knows his own mind. In this one, the heroine had an abusive first husband and has to be convinced to try marriage again. I went back and read the first book in the Lost Lord series, but it's not as good as this one.
I have been enjoying the series so far. Mary Jo Putney brings romance and intrigue together to create a great story. Sexy romance between the two main characters while someone plots their demise. I think you'll lik.
