Format: Mass Market Paperback
It's been several days since I read this book and initially I couldn't remember what it was about - not a good sign! It's an enjoyable enough book, if clearly a little forgettable.

Zoe Lexham isn't your average young girl. She has spent twelve years in the exotic East, having been kidnapped and forced to live in a harem. When she escapes and returns home to London, it's clear that her shocking history might have an effect on her family's reputation.

Lucien de Grey is an old family friend. Zoe's father is like a father figure to him and he decides to use his position as Duke to try to reduce the problems that Lexham faces. Plus Zoe was a childhood playmate before she disappeared.

But Zoe doesn't know entirely how to behave, and when spending time with her Lucien seems to forget too. Can they find a happy ending?

I usually like Loretta Chase's books - Lord of Scoundrels is absolutely excellent - but this one wasn't quite as memorable. Although both Zoe and Lucien were good characters, some of the plot felt a bit forced, such as an attempt at a mystery. However it's a good read for those who like their historical romances.

I was getting really excited about this book and absolutely loved it until about 3/4 of the way through. Both hero and heroine are great characters, its extremely well written and very witty, great dialogue, excellent scene setting and period detail and some very moving insights into their backgrounds and past history but for me there was not enough tension between the two characters to make a really great love story. They were obviously made for each other, they were attracted to each other, they got married, they acknowledged their love. There were not ever really any serious obstacles in their path. The drama/tension is provided by a rather unbelievable baddie who never really threatens either the heroine or the relationship. Thus the declaration of love when it eventually comes lacks any kind of emotional punch. Not very satisfying in the end although it seemed so promising at the start.

PS: I should add that this only gets 3 stars from me because Loretta Chase is generally so brilliant that my expectations are very high. By most other measures this would be a four star book but I want more from LC.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story, amusing, well written, good sense of place/history. A previous review gives the book only 3 stars but I believe it deserves the 5 stars I have given it. The heroine, Zoe, was amusing and the hero, Lucien, masterful but reserved and somewhat bewildered with Zoe, the story seemed historically accurate. Loretta Chase is getting back on form.

If like me you enjoy a humorous romance then this one is for you.
Zoe was kidnapped and spent her growing up years in a harem learning how to please men, (although she remains a virgin). Lucien spent his growing up years living with Zoes family, when she escapes and gets back to her family the fun starts. Zoe doesnt know how to behave, she is shockingly forward and outspoken she lists one of her qualifications has "knowing all the arts of pleasing a man". Lucian the Duke decides to teach her how to behave in public "after refusing her proposal" The first few pages will have you laughing out loud and so it continues throughout the book. Worth all the 5 stars I have rated it. If this is your first L. Chase book, also try The Last Hellion, and Lord of Scoundrels, and when you have read them try her early works "Lord Perfect etc.
Enjoy.

Zoe Octavia Lexham was always the problem child - she never obeyed the rules, she only wanted to learn what the boys learned, and she was forever running away. But for the young Lucien de Grey, she was the bright spot in his life. Until Zoe went travelling with her parents... and never came back.

Twelve years on Lord Lexham still looks for his daughter's return. Lucien, however, has long given up hope. Which is why when he hears of Miss Lexham's miraculous return he's eager to prove to the world that she's a fake and a fraud.

Until he sees her... and she asks him to marry her.

Zoe's spent twelve years locked in a harem, but now that she's home and free she wants to take her true place in society. And it just so happens that the boy she liked so well in her youth is now a grown-up, fashionable duke. Even better, Lucien says she doesn't have to marry him to regain her place.

Except that he's terribly handsome these days, and Zoe's learned all these skills about how to please a man. And herself. How's a girl - who's never been taught to say no - to resist? How can a duke - who needs never deny himself anything - not be tempted?

Loretta Chase is a master at unusual situations and/or settings for her tales. And this is no different. She brilliantly evokes Zoe's differences and the troubles she faces after being away for so long. At the same time she focus on the strictures and high stakes of Regency society at its height, and the prices to be paid for success - and failure.

Having said that I did find Zoe a little tiresome and childish at times, and Lucien sometimes fell flat. All the ingredients are there for a classic Chase story, but for me it never quite meshed (although Zoe definitely improves in the second half).

Not one of Chase's best, but still enjoyable and packed with a true Regency feel. A solid read, and a nice way to pass a few hours.
