She understands the concept of characters and plot. She's got a grip on 'plot device' and uses it extensivly.
Randall, the hero, is one of those lords who's past included being a spy for HMS in the wars. supposedly, he was good at it. Yet his every flickering, passing throught is broadcast on his face for the heroine to read it. As there is no previous passage to indicate his face is actually blank, I had to conclude he's one of those peoople who's every thought is on his face. (as apposed to the 'special' heroine who is the only person to see his thoughts and soul) Spy material, he is not.
Sarah, the heroine, is a Lady who's family has been left in ruin, and been left to fend for herself (her brothers being giving homes with extended family, as they are worthy and she is not), and so must become a governess or companion. She's sapposed to be feisty, I guess, but I just found her naive.
The writing I found to be clumsy and cumbersome. I started 'seeing' the characters as paper dolls on popsickle sticks, with a childs hand bouncing them along in play, with a childs voiceover saying the lines. Does the heroine need to be reminded how low she is on the social scale? Bring up cook (never seen before) to her room, to give a two page long monologue on what the master does and says (after saying she never gossips about him).
It's books like this that give Regency Romance a bad name.
I gave it 2 stars, instead of 1, because there was nothing wrong with grammatical construction.
I would not recommend this book to anyone.

A well written Regency romp with a handsome hero and feisty heroine. The plot is predictable -but isn't that the the joy of Regency romances?Published on 12 Oct. 2012 by Fenella J. Miller
