The story is nonsensical, repetitive and full of inaccuracies for the period.
The writing is of the following standard:
"The depth of those words ran deeper than any ocean." (I could provide example after example of gems like this. One particularly excruciating scene is the one where the h secretly observes the H handing over money to his brother - what is it about the brother's feet?)
And where was the editor? The h calls the H a "cod" on two separate occasions. The first time he is a "heartless cod" and I think the second time, pages later, he is an "insufferable cod".
Even the cods are outdone by another hilarious statement. First, the context - after her father dies, the h discovers a journal, written by her mother, describing an affair, which makes the h aware that she is not her father's birth child, because he was sterile. The h comes to London, trying to find her birth father. So much about this story is ludicrous (the scene at Whites is jaw-dropping). The author asks us to believe that the h could find her birth father, when her main clue, other than that he was a member of the ton, is that he may have kept a distinctive letter opener gifted to him by the h's mother, decades before?
Moving right along, the h begins eliminating men from the ton, one after another, generally by searching the houses/studies of likely candidates, looking for the letter opener or a handy journal entry/collection of letters/whatever.
One possibility bites the dust without even appearing in person, on the basis of info provided by servants. What a shame he isn't her father! He sounds amazing!
"The impossibly well-endowed Earl of Ivertine was told at a very young age that he was incapable of bearing children, eliminating the likelihood that her mother would have found him desirable and worthy of her end objective."
What a shock it must have been for the young man - to be told he wouldn't "bear" children! (More of a shock, however, to have been told he could.) And then to be "impossibly" well-endowed - whatever that is. A double blow! No wonder the mother looked elsewhere, in 19th Century England, to deliver on her "end objective."
Once I checked, I had my own shock. I thought I'd received this book as a free offer. Instead, I found, to my horror, that I paid full price for it. And left it too long to request a refund. Hence this review.
ETA : the one point is for the lovely cover.
A lazy editor reflects badly on the writer and the publizher.
I did like the hero, Harold Jakeston. The author does a good job of fleshing out his character quite well. By far the most interesting character for me though was Ellington. She was a spit fire of a girl and as we learned the truth of her upbringing, it became clear why she acted the way she did. If Ms. McKnight writes Ellington's story, I would be most interested in reading that one.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
