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.Read more ›
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.
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.
