4.0 out of 5 stars This is classic Shirlee Busbee... 17 Feb 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Although this book was not as exciting as her earlier works, I still enjoyed it because of the historical detail that is synonimous with Ms. Busbee's work. The caracters are fun but I thought that she could have gotten a little deeper into Chance's earlier years so we could get a better handle on the man he was in the story. Fancy was a fine lady but I expected a little more fire from her especially with Change and most definitly when she butted heads with Jonathan. I hope we don't have to wait too long for the next episode from Ms. Busbee's imagination. Thanks, Rita Hidi

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!!! 23 Jun 1998

I just love this story. I have read it a couple of times and I think you should too. There is nothing like a good romance. Ms. Busbee is one of the better storytellers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful, cleverly wrought tale 23 Aug 2000
By Deanna Roy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
On their way through Virginia, Fancy and her sister are captured by ruffians and saved by Chance and his friend. When they reach their destination, a tangled web of who is planning to marry whom, partly solved by Chance's forcing Fancy to marry him by sneaking into her bed one night, brings on a tale of jilted loves, revenge, and learning who truly stands to inherit a huge estate.
This is really a tale of several twisted romances between three men and the two sisters. It is upbeat, funny, and overall well done. I read the book quickly and was held in terrible suspense several times. The subplot of Chance's possibly being the original beau's brother was a great turn of events and really kept me going. This was a not-to-be-put-down book in many ways, so I do recommend it.
