By Anna Oxford VINE VOICE on 7 May 2006
Format: Paperback
I've read most of her other books and must say that in recent years they have seriously dropped in quality. This is the worst yet - preposterous storyline, two-dimensional characters and sloppy period research. Give this one a miss!

I enjoyed this book up until the explanations are made of what actually happened eleven years ago. Those explanations are so far-fetched as to be ludicrous and somewhat spoilt the book for me.

I'm also amazed that an author of the standing of Johanna Lindsey should have made such basic errors when it came to English hereditory rights and entail. I'm no expert, but even I picked it up straight away and then looked it up on the Internet just to make sure.

1.Under English law a heritory title usually passes through the male line and normally would neither be inherited by a daughter or her son (there was apparently one rare exception to this made by Parliament to the Duke of Malborough). So, there was no way that Margaret's son would inherit her father's title. 2. Entail - the original entailed estate given with the title would pass to the nearest male relative of the male line as with the title e.g. a distant cousin or even an uncle.So "White Oaks...the entailed manor of the Earls of Millwright" would not pass into the "possession" of Margaret, a daughter.
Other property could also be entailed by the owner and by Regency times these entails had to be renewed by each succeeding owner. However, these entails would also pass down the male line.

I would have thought that a young Regency aristocratic lady would not keep using the word "bloody" as freely as Margaret does. Also, nit-picking here, I do wish American authors would realise that we British do not use the word "fall" for Autumn, its an Americanism that ought to be picked up by the publisher's proof reader. Margaret was supposed to be English in origin, not American.

All the criticism above sounds as if I didn't like the book and in fact I did.

I have to admit to some disappointment with this book. It lacked the sparkle of other Lindsey novels, and lacked the punch of the Mallory series. However despite this I will always buy any Lindsey book because normally she can't be beaten. I hope her next one recaptures the old magic.

Am I being paid back for bringing this book back from the reader's leavings shelf on holiday, I wonder?

I have always loved Johanna Lindsey in the past and have quite a collection on my shelves, but this one really is 'beyond the pale'!

First of all, the cursing, a lady or gentleman would not use 'Bloody Hell' at all, maybe 'damnation' or something like; it was on every page, almost!

Secondly, Aristocrats were educated and spoke real English not 'course' instead of 'of course' and we would hear 'M'dear' spoken by older gentleman as in 'Pygmalion', not young bucks!

Then we have John Wayne popping up as usual, 'The hell you will', heavens above, how do they get away with it, do they think we are so simpleminded that we accept anything? I suppose the answer is a resounding YES! Those Americanism's are a pain in the 'butt'!!!!

The ending descended into farce and probably if we were watching poor old Giles being repeated knocked down by Sebastian we would have laughed, I must admit that I read with my mouth open and wondered if it was Johanna Lindsey or a child who had written this garbage. I had to read it to the end, though, just to make sure.

At least the names were acceptable, Sebastian and Giles I do like!

I have every one of Johanna Lindsey's books collected over a few years, she never fails to disappoint me as I read them for sheer "getaway for the mundane trudges of life" and Johanna can transport me to this realm within the first few chapters and then imagination takes over. It is down to the individual what they want to get out of reading for me I enjoyed the intrigue of Raven and his father.
