A good love story except for two things. As in the 1st and 3rd books of this series the hero rapes the heroine, and is forgiven. Rape is treated like the trauma it inflicts just goes away if the rapist is someone you love. If these two things don't bother you, you will probably enjoy the detailed romance of Rahab McClellan and Jericho Smith, aka Goeffrey Hunter-Smythe, the Earl of Stanhope. Oh yeah, nothing the heroine does is ever right, or works out right. Three cheers for the feminist movement.
