I thoroughly enjoyed this conventional tale of haughty Lord falling for strong willed governess. Although there were a couple of sub plots the central plot was the developing romance between the two main characters (that is not always the case in some romances unfortunately). What I loved about this novel was the fact that, apart from a previous marriage that was barely mentioned, there were no ex mistresses, lovers, previous grand passions for the hero to overcome. The only initial barrier to the couple uniting was their different social status. I just loved this gentle, thoroughly enjoyable "old school" romance.

This was a sweet story. The relationship between the hero and heroine was lovely and the way the heroine helped to revive the hero was great. A conventional love story of a man falling for the wrong woman but with some interesting twists along the way, and who doesn't love a happy ending anyway!

This book is a strange mixure of good writing and horrible writing. The author knows the construction of the English language.
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.
