Better than your average romance fare,
By A Customer
This review is from: One Perfect Rose (Fallen Angels Series) (Hardcover)
Mary Jo Putney achieved a blend of romance and plot that I have never before encountered in a romance novel. She also escapes the tedium of historical slang often used by writers of Regency period romances. While this book suffered from the same illness that so many romance books do--too much sex--it provided an interestng plot line, well developed characters, and a happy ending that every true romantic will sigh over. The realistic emotions experienced by the characters when facing such weighty life issues as the possiblity of an untimely death and whether or not there exists a life after death will keep a reader's mind stimulated and interested. This book is worth reading for any adult reader who is looking for a better than average historical romance.
