Jenny has other problems to deal with besides an alleged mooning suitor. She owes rent and her landlord wants her to barter sex as payment. She refuses his offers, but Mr. Bucket is not a man that easily accepts any denial of his pleasures. Can Jenny turn to Latimer or is he faking affection to get into her boudoir?
THE ORPHAN is a fun regency romance that follows the story of two middle class types. Latimer is a heroic individual, but THE ORPHAN belongs to the title character Jenny. Her struggles with Bucket while debating whether Latimer is her savior or a leap from the frying pan into the fire make the tale. The return of the Shakespearean-spouting ghost adds humor as Stella Cameron provides a fresh look at the era with an engaging yet simplistic tale.
I had a little trouble understanding why, exactly, Latimer had set his cap for Jenny, but she proves to be a worthy match. However, I hate, Hate HATE the device of phonetically spelling the words uttered by someone with a Scottish accent, and thus found myself skimming everything uttered by Jenny. "Och." "Dinna" "Ye." Blech.
As I said, though, the intrigue in this novel was much better plotted than the last two novels in the series, and the villain was actually a surprise to me.
Hopefully the next and final book will continue on this trend.
