In the end I decided that I couldn't really warrant more than 3 star rating for it.
For me, the characters lacked depth, the pace was slow and there was a lack of content to the piece as a whole. It left me feeling decidedly underwhelmed in a way, as if the author had failed to engender any kind of emotion into the piece ... almost like it had been written as a casual observer rather with any real feeling being achieved.
I've popped it in my One Off Reads folder, but would like to reading something else by Ms Rosk to see if this was a one off baddie, and I could gel with more of her work.

I was reeeally trying to like this book, and even looked past a couple serious plot discrepancies (On one page Blaise is trembling at the thought Eliza could be his sister, literally a couple pages later Blaise is recalling how he is the illegitimate son of a stable hand- so that kinda negates the past few pages....and then there is "Lady Elizabeth" whom everyone treats and introduces as a Lady, yet is the illegitimate daughter of a prostitute...)The whole thing was just too back and forth between too many extremes to find believably, one minute she is Eliza the peasant girl then she is Eliza the lady and every other page you will read about Blaise's "hideous orange hair" not to mention how he seems to despise and distrust her one minute and then is calling her "my love" the next for no rhyme or reason. It was just a lot to try to overlook in such a short amount of time I stopped reading it at about 50%. Maybe it's just me, but it seemed to much like 3 or 4 different so-so ideas kinda thrown together instead of just sticking to a couple and trying to elaborate on them and make them work. I really hate to leave such a negative review since I can imagine how much work and effort goes into coming up with an original story, but honestly if I had read a similar review I wouldn't have passed on the free download and found something else.
As for me and if I would take the undertaking of writing books, she did much better then I would.
For the review:
I found the book to be interesting, a slow start but by the middle I enjoyed the read. I did not have trouble putting the book down to get things done. It was long when I felt it could have been shorter and got the same effect. But with the being a first book for the author I give her a high 5. It was a good book.
