3.0 out of 5 stars so-so - the morals are a touch dubious, 15 Jun. 2011
By 
This review is from: Four in Hand (Paperback)
This is an easy and light read, albeit a tad daft (don't get me wrong, I know these books aren't meant to portray reality!) However, what had me getting cross was the morals - our heroes, all rakes and bounders, try to seduce gently bred virgins from their own social class, who, what is more, are under the protection of one of their own. I found myself wanting the girls to tell them to shove off, and not turn into limp lettuce leaves the moment one of them raises an eyebrow at them! I didn't like that one of the girls gives into the seduction, thinking she's destined to become a mistress, when he, noble soul that he is really, is intending to marry her. She didn't know when she succumbed, so in my book that was pretty rotten on his part. I also found the end ludicrous, even within the genre. Another reviewer has the right of it when they say this would have been better as a four-part series, and not crammed into one short, large font book. I didn't miss the endlessly described sex scenes from her later books, but I see she was setting one of her standards very early in her writing career - that of sex before marriage. There's a lot of it in here!
