This is a fun story well told. Katherine is great character and independent woman who much like the three romantic interests in the book, is rediscovering herself. The feel of the times is beautifully invoked, the Napoleonic wars, smuggling, the London season and the country gentility. All the characters feel real and multifaceted and you really enjoy sending time in their world. The romance is engaging and I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I would love to read more about these characters as there seems to be more stories to tell.
