This is a good tale let down badly by many solecsisms.
Very rarely were first names used by the upper classes.
No nobleman would use the word "Quid".
At least the author got the spelling of whiskey correct.
Irish and American versions are spelt Whiskey, whereas
Scotch is Whisky- NO "E". American authors and editors are ignorant of this detail.
They didn't have pound notes at the time.
They used Sovereigns or Guineas - coins NOT paper.
The description of the emotions of the main protagonists is over emphasised and effusive - very off-putting.
Mary Ballogh and Stephanie Laurens do it better.
