A wonderful romance...
on 29 October 2004
This is the first Liz Carlyle I have read - and having finished it I have gone straight to order anything else I can find written by her!
It is so refreshing to read such a unique spin on the "innocent miss seduced by the heartless rake" story. The characters are real and compelling and their growing love for each other entirely believable. Bentley, in particular, is such a contradiction and strangely complex. On the surface he is a worthless charmer - but as a reader you start to fall for him just as Frederica does. It just goes to show how readily women fall for flawed, damaged men! And when we find out just why Bentley is so hurt and damaged - not only is a real shocker but it will just make you adore him even more!
This book would probably be even more enjoyable if you read Beauty Like the Night and My False Heart first - as they introduce Bentley and Freddie several years before. But, if like me you read them after (and believe me, you will want to read more Liz Carlyle) it won't spoil your enjoyment of this wonderful book. Enjoy!
