I know that people give out about the Americanisms that slip into the text, but they are so, so few — the humour and the general heart-warmingness of this series more than makes up for it.
To fill out the storyline, there were some awesome minor characters. I loved little Rose, Thorn's ward, who was orphaned following the death of her "mudlark" father and turned up very unexpectedly in Thorn's arms and heart. I do believe that was when I fell in love with Thorn. Although an illegitimate son, he never forgot his humble beginnings and was loyal to a fault so to speak.
I even liked Laetitia or "Lala" as she was called by her family and friends. We know from the outset that once Thorn chooses Lala as his future wife for reasons other than love, he is doomed to failure so it's not a spoiler to give this away. From Thorn's and India's first encounter, when they meet to discuss her restoring/redesigning the home he has purchased for Lala, we immediately know he is done for - the only thing to be determined is how long it will take him to realize he's a goner. Their notes to one another as she sets about decorating his home are very entertaining.
The fire between Thorn and India was f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s. India's wounds from her past and Thorn's concerns that he was not good enough for a lady caused some misunderstandings between them, but that is, after all what makes the book.
Altogether a little more depth and spice than a standard regency romance, and well written.
