This story may seem entirely improbable ~ and parts may be, who knows? But the crazy goings on surrounding Finn's invention of a horseless carriage and the subsequent exhibition of various prototypes were all too possible. Things could get dicey with that crowd. Anyway, where would we be without a villain?
The romance was sweet and showcased the strengths and vulnerabilities of both Finn and Alexandra.
A shady owner of an Italian castle leased the castle for a year to a group of three English ladies while simultaneously making the same deal with three English gentlemen. So, two more stories will follow this entertaining debut.
Incidentally, I will never again visit the fruit market without expecting to see "astonished bananas". lol Clever writing.
Enjoy your reading! :)
The characters are all well defined and none of them fall into any overdone stereotype. If you are looking for a 19 year-old, virgin heroine, don't buy. I find myself appreciative of slightly older lead women who have confidence and quirkiness. While the lady in question is not a bluestocking - she is smart, witty, proper and not wide-eyed-innocent at all. I like that a lot. If you are looking for a dark Duke who is afraid to love, don't buy. The lead man is strong, intelligent and self-aware (but a mere Mr.). I like that a lot too.
Her writing is good and tight- you don't have to worry about bad writing or cringe-worthy anachronistic lingo.
The plot is sort of unconventional but falls overall in the bucket of 'unlikely bed mates'. It is a really nice change from the usual rake-bluestocking choke. There are no balls, country parties or huge mansions. Well, wait, there is a huge mansion. And a car.
As for sex ... thankfully it's not "sweet" with chaste kisses. Not erotica level intense either. The sex is hot and at the right places. To those of you who care about this: the sex scenes are not silly and written with a good shade of maturity.
I am looking forward to the next in this series; but I do think Juilana Grey is capable of a better creation than this one. I'll keep an eye out for her.
