Her descriptions evoked all sorts of images and emotions - I got a vivid sense of the characters, the time, the place. There was an almost gothic feel to most of the book and I found that to be a refreshing change from the usual Regency fare.
Unlike one reviewer who mentioned that she does not have any children, I have children (and grandchildren) and I thought the three little ones added a great deal to the story and mood of this book. They were a key element to the plot without taking it over and acted like real kids - they also provided some humor and fun.
The romantic tension and sexual chemistry between Harriet and Nathaniel was HOT! I was happy that the author took the time to build a solid relationship and friendship between the two of them before they jumped into bed because I rarely enjoy a story that has the hero and heroine between the sheets in the first chapter.
The book started off slowly as the characters were introduced and the mood was set, but the tension built with each chapter and that kept me turning those pages, anxious to see how it all turned out.
I rated this book 5 stars because I felt it was terrific and I look forward to reading more books by this talented author.
