4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet , romantic , lots of chemistry between the two main characters, 24 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Some Like it Sinful (Mass Market Paperback)
Its not often that i stop and think ' im really enjoying this' in the first few chapters of a book but i constantly found myself thinking this as i read 'some like it sinful'. I think what made the age old plot of a handsome nobleman holding up a choach carrying a beautiful young woman so original was the characterisation. I really like Clara.Whereas other authors constantly tell us how intelligent a heroine is and then the heroine goes and does the complete opposite, we see for ourselves how level headed Clara is. She is cool and calm and she doesnt panic and constantly whine to be released by Hawksley. She actually offers to help him find the information he seeks as she very quickly realises he means her no harm and wishes to find his brothers murderer.As for the hero. i loved the way he respected the heroines intellect and actually seeks her help when he finds out her skills in problem solving - at no point does he belittle or underestimate her abilities.Clara isnt the type of heroine that constantly needs saving, she actually comes to the rescue in causing a needed diversion at one point.

They made such a lovely couple and i liked the way they were honest about their feelings for each other.It was nice to see the gradual progression from admiration, to affection and friendship and finally falling in love. The dialogue was fresh and lively, and the story moved quickly. I really like the supporting characters as they were well developed and very likable.

The only thing that stopped me from giving this a 5 star review was that fact i felt that it ended quite abruptly, i think it would have benifeted from an epilogue maybe. Also, Ms Raleigh resorted to the predictable plot device of the heroine finding out the heros true identity (very minor deception although he should have been more upfront) in order for the heroine to leave and run straight in to danger.

So all in all , although im new to reviewing i really loved this book and would definently recommend you read it , wonderful characterisation!
