I enjoyed this book, but I felt somewhat detached from it the entire time. It just seemed a little off. It is a bit of a departure from the typical, and in some ways that makes it interesting, but it also felt a bit like it had been rushed and not completely thought through. I found it difficult to believe that the heroine and her aunt could have spent all that time in London with the hero without once hearing him addressed in a way that revealed his circumstances. Also, so many couples where there are love triangles and individuals settling for partners that they don't really want, yet at the end in the blink of an eye, with almost no time elapsing, everyone is very happy with their relationships and they are all buddy-buddy. No bitterness or hard feelings. Some the story just seemed so contrived and the main relationship, although the characters had a long history together in their youth, felt like it hadn't been given enough to grow with...especially on the heroine's side. On the plus side, the story was generally sweet and it was a nice, clean novel. It was appealing to me to have a hero who was just a kind, good man...not the tormented rakehell so prevalent in the genre.
