The bickering between the all the characters, the chemistry between Gregory and Samantha and last but not least, the secondary romance between Theresa and Duncan. Which was just straight out hilarious and entertaining to read about. Theresa and Duncan got their ending in the book too but I kinda wished they had another book dedicated to them. Plus, Theresa's character really surprised me as I was expecting someone who was just downright cruel.
Anyone who reads this book cannot not dislike Duncan because he's just downright hilarious. I'm also beginning to realize that in books like these, the hero's best buddy is always a rake and extremely funny. Which is why they should all also get their own books.
Of course, with some of the other reviewers, I have to agree that the spy plotline was a little bit weak for me taste. It was there but never seemed to get fully developed and whatnot. Also I was really annoyed that the hero was so against the fact the Samantha's past as a thief. I thought his reaction was a little bit overwhelming, I mean, really? After all that they went through and how they got together, added with the chemistry that they shared. I thought it was a little unnecessary. But overall I would recommend this book because how Gregory apologizes to Samantha is very endearing.
...an interesting heroine with flaws I can relate to;
...a hero with much to learn either about himself and about others.
What this book has:
...a heroine with an immensely interesting background, and one that I seldom encounter in my constant reading of historical romance fiction;
...a hero that has SO much to learn about himself, and his daughters, and the lady he wants to align himself with;
...a setting that I can well imagine as I read because it is described so well;
...secondary characters who intrigue me to the point where I want to know what their story is, too;
...an antagonist of the heroine that turns into an ally
...another antagonist who I would dearly love to shove into a mud-bog but gets their comeuppance in a far, far more intriguing manner than I could have devised;
...the ability to make me laugh and cry and get so lost in the telling that I'm annoyed when something (real life) intrudes and interrupts me from my reading.
Ms. Dodd is as fine a storyteller as there ever was and this novel, like all the others I have read by her, does not disappoint.
The steamy romance scenes definitely build on the charged tension between the leads, and though I'm not a big reader of those sorts of things, I can see why the author included them, though it seemed over the top. There was a part near the end that really towed the line between consensual and non-consensual and that made me cringe a little, but the author pulled the scene back towards consensual eventually. Getting back to the Sound of Music aspect - I really loved the tiny nods to the musical that inspired the story - I'm thinking the title is a play on "My Favorite Things", the children sing, and there is even one part where a character wonders if she was wicked in her childhood. That really made me smile. Overall I really enjoyed the development of Colonel Gregory and Samantha's interest in each other and the way Samantha won over the children. And the children's hand in bringing the Colonel and Samantha together in the end!
