Anne Gracie is a new author to me and a real find! Her books are definately keepers!
The perfect Waltz is so well written you very quickly bond with the characters and want to know what happens next.The lead male character is Sebastian Reyne, a secretive, complex man with a past. He is an interesting character, he cares deeply for his sisters and is willing to make personal sacrifices to ensure their happiness. He falls passionately in love with Hope, but rejects her and his own chance for happiness, because of his sisters. Hope is attracted by Sebastian and chance events keep throwing them together.She does not consider him to be her dream man however, as he evokes too many unhappy memories of another time.
The story has all the elements of a good Regency romance, but it is the depth of the writing and the way that Gracie as a writer involves us and makes us care about her characters, that is the strength of the book. I read this book first ,although it is the second in the series and it didn`t spoil my enjoyment.However, I do recommend that you read the books in sequence, as her first book, The Perfect Rake, ia equally as good, and many of the characters are in both books. I can`t wait to find out what happens to Faith in the next story, I hope it will be published soon.
