Format: Mass Market Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. The story of Robert and Lucinda is a bumpy and interesting one. Robert is a recluse, suffering from severe trauma sustained during the Peninsular War. Lucinda has decided to marry and Robert decides he's going to help her catch her quarry. This is a big step for Robert as he finds it difficult to socialise. Lucinda helps him to step out of the shadows more and more often to help her. He finds her fascinating and it helps him overcome his fear. The story wends its way round another suitor, Robert's panic attacks and a traitor who hopes to help Napoleon escape his imprisonment and re-start the war. There are outraged fathers, jealous suitors, meddling families and an exciting hunt for the traitor. All the ingredients for a book that you won't want to put down until you've finished it.

Robert's character is interesting partly due to his experiences at Chateau Pagnon. You find your self caring for him and his story along with Lucinda. I have read this story many times and would also recommend the other titles in the Lessons in Love series.

After reading London's Perfect Scoundrel and found it lacking, I had little to no expectations of England's Perfect Hero. Boy, how wrong I was. The story is written in such a way that the characters grow slowly, silently and sweetly on you, and in the end you sit there completely loving them without a slightest clue of when or how that happened. Well, that last bit isn't completely true. There was several moments where I applauded the hero and the heroine, but her especially as she was so opposite of many TSTL heroines in Regency romances. So let's start with her.

Lucinda is a surprisingly and refreshingly insightful and wise young woman. She's genuinly considerate, kind and unassuming. I love how she handles Robert (by not really handling him). She both realizes and understands without really trying that Robert, who suffers from PTSD, needs a person who can talk and act normally around him. A person who doesn't behave like they walk on broken glass, afraid that the tiniest thing they say would tick him off. She's honest in her responses to him - instead of acting all miffed when he's too direct or unintentionally insults her due to forgetting how to behave socially correct after the war trauma, she just decides to be just as direct as him, admitting that he insulted her, but that he is welcome to explain himself. She also realizes that a lot of things he does and say might have a deeper meaning than what is apparent. Examples is when he apologizes for a conversation she barely gave a second thought or seeks her out later. Instead of just waving the apology away, she understands that even though she thought little of it, he apparently did not and therefore felt it important to aplogize. So she accepted the apology.

Inevitably, the plot is full of political intrigue surrounding the 'Hundred Days War', which isn't my favourite plot device but is executed fairly well I must admit. Despite this I still felt a little disappointed by the novel. Robert, or Bit, who I did fall for in the first book lost a bit of his charm during his own story, maybe that was because he lost a lot of his mystery, I can't say.

Robert's difficulties in reconnecting to the world after his experiences during the war are dealt with well and his relationship with Lucinda is wonderfully, slowly developed. I was worried how they'd handle the story of Lucinda, the quietest of the three heroines of the series, and I was glad that she didn't undergo some sort of personality makeover to attract the hero.

Finally, the ending confrontation is a bit predictable, but nothing terrible in itself, albeit a bit rushed. Again, an epilogue would have really helped round off the story. I certainly preferred 'England's Perfect Hero' to 'London's Perfect Scoundrel' but 'The Rake' is still the best of the bunch for me with this offering coming in a respectable second place.

This is an old favourite and a constant reread. I really like both Bit and Lucinda and the way that their relationship develops. I also enjoy the way their extended families and acquaintances feed into the backbone of the book. Bit's relationship with his brothers is really heartwarming.

Of Suzanne Enoch's books, this trilogy is definitely my favourite. I think, however, that you will enjoy this book more if you read the three books in order. The story itself make a lot more sense in that you understand the context of the 'lessons' and you get to see more of Bit's character development.

Loved this book. Could not put it down. Have read a few of Suzanne Enoch's books and this was up to the usual standard.
