An unusual love story involving a seemingly plain and inexperienced young woman, who however knows very well what she wants from live and a much more life experienced hero, who doesn't really know yet which his priorities in life are. He is only to find out when he is close to losing all of it.
Well written love story with all necessary ingredients to keep the reader in suspense - incl. inventive ending.
Katherine Welles is a puritan lass down to the bone-- even if she doesn't want to admit it-- trying to escape her arranged marriage to a vile man. As her luck would have it, she manages to run away with the man she'd been helping recuperate,the infamous Raven, and enlists his help to reach her cousin in London.
Most of this book consists of their journey to London and the obligatory growing attraction between the hero/ heroine. And for the most part I was along for the ride. The writing is good, quick and light, but engaging enough. Our heroine was innocent and plucky enough-- though at times a little too insufferably naive-- to keep our hero on his toes and there was enough tension to keep me turning the pages. But it all turned sour when the Raven's secret was outed.
*Spoilers be Here!*
Now, one would think that the heroine, already knowing that Nicholas is the Raven, wouldn't be too much surprised that he had secrets. Kat even knew this going into their relationship, I mean, what do you expect after only knowing the man a few weeks? But her reaction to finding out the he is actually an Earl was way too over the top. In fact, I think most women would be ecstatic to find that their paramours were actually much better off than they had thought. And the fact that she was so upset because she thought he wanted her for her estate was laughable at best. That's what marriage was back then, and it was what she'd been expecting earlier in the book when she was betrothed to yet a different man. The whole misunderstanding between Nic and Kat could have been resolved if they had just talked to each other. But they didn't and her level of hate towards him seemed very misplaced.
I had to skim the last part of the book because it was just too drawn out and ridiculous.
In the end it's not a bad read, it's fast and light and fun at times-- but the ending sort of ruined it for me.
