I received a complimentary copy of this book from Library Thing. This is my honest opinion of it.
I really wanted to love this book, but came away disappointed. While the character Simon is convincing as a romantic lead, his love interest, Lydia, is inconsistently developed. In one scene she is strong, in another she is hysterical. The setting is so full of anachronisms that it is difficult to tell just when this historical romance is set. Amazon has it categorized as 'romance--historical--medieval,' but since part of the action talkes place in New York City, this clearly cannot be the case. However, based on some of the rules of conduct of the town where Simon and Lydia live, the confusion is understandable. But, the "rules" are also inconsistent. Lydia, as an unattached single lady, must always wear her hair up, but she can go on an extended trip with a single man without a chaperone. These inconsistencies, along with a plethora of under-developed villians make for an unfulfilling read. Younger readers (early YA) readers will find the simple writing style approachable, and the romance between Simon and Lydia sweet and tame.
