5.0 out of 5 stars "It's rags and riches all in one place!", 14 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Truth About Lord Stoneville (Hellions of Halstead Hall) (Mass Market Paperback)
I just love how the author described Halstead Hall! Other reviewers have cited the plot already so I won't do so anymore.

I have to say since Stoneville was a recurring character in the "School for Heiresses" series I thought it was a good idea to write a "spin off" in a new series. And in this one Oliver Sharpe's(Stoneville)character is developed. I was never sure in the heiresses books if this guy was good or bad and I'm glad this book refers to that as well and answers the all important question: "why?". It's a mark of a good author when the characters stay true to who they are through the entire book and the reader understands why they say or do certain things and how the relationship benefits them to become better people.

I thought Maria was a good character and definitely had a personality that was strong enough to handle a man like Oliver. The development of the story is believable and the love scenes are awesome -- in fact, I think this is one of the few romances where the love scenes actually reflect the stage in the relationship. There is definitely a difference when the couple have fully committed themselves to each other. Of course, heroes from the heiresses series Lord Kirkwood and Foxmoor also make an appearance and Norcourt is also referenced (well I guess they are all Stoneville's friends after all)There are some new characters too who I am sure we will all get to know a little bit better through the series.

This is a good book, and the interactions between Oliver and Maria were so sweet they made me ache sometimes! I think if a romance is to be considered good then the reader should be able to also "fall in love" with the hero and, man, how I wish I was Maria! Looking forward to reading the next book in the series! If you like Sabrina Jeffries then this one will not disappoint!
