Like the vast majority of American novelists (Carla Kelly notwithstanding), Ms Hoyt's tone when writing about London is just a bit "off". And as this whole series is set in and around a London slum, that's annoying. Georgette Heyer couldn't have written well about East L.A. - I know that, but it still annoys me. I hate being able to tell an author isn't English, if the book is set in England.
Gripe #2: I'm tired of this plot. I never liked the idea of 18th-Century Bruce Waynes (and this hero, being a Duke - is even sillier).
On to the good - and there's a heap of it. The romance is interesting, the main characters fully fleshed-out with REAL motives for their actions. The supporting characters are great - a short but terrific scene between our heroine and a fellow (older) companion especially stood out to me. The love scenes are seriously good (and - yay! - take place at a realistic point in the story).
In short, top-class stuff from a mature author at the peak of her powers (though my favourite of Ms Hoyt's books is still The Raven Prince...).
PS: Ms Hoyt: I'd like to see Apollo's story - but please, no more Ghost!
