You can't touch this author when it comes to the details of the period from politics to dressing and everything else. Hr description is so vivid, reading her books literally takes you into that era. That said, this to me wasn't one of her best.
The heroine is unlike other heroines I've read by this author. I felt she was quite immature, forever quarrelling with the hero and lacking common sense which is usually the strong point of Georgette's heroines. She came across to me as a spoilt, rich, beauty with hardly any sense and I found her unnecessary arguments with the hero so tiring I had to skip quite a few pages. I've read much better from this author!!
