For various reasons Lady Leona (the heroine) chooses to hide her identity and pass herself off as "Lady L' when she meets Aldwin, a young man in the service of their over Lord Geoffrey De Lanceau. Fair enough, however Aldwin's reaction to her shabby clothes, dirty nails and insistence on remaining incognito is to back out of the transaction he was sent to arrange with her and attack her, tie her up and kidnap her instead. He reasons this outrageous treatment is okay because she can't possibly be a real lady.
In fact he concludes she is of poor descent and only carries herself like a lady and speaks like one because she is a courtesan, as apparently poor women cannot acquire such abilities by morally sound means!
Leona's constant switching from hating Aldwin to happily wanting to snog him grates as much as his 'nasty' attitude towards those less fortunate than him. Although admittedly even when he begins to think she might be a lady his ambition to be knighted still drives him to force her compliance. No wonder the man is so old and not yet a knight, he's an idiot!
But as if the author wishes to emphasize the validity of his attitude towards the poor, the villainess of this tale is a heartless courtesan, and not of 'noble' birth, but a mere 'farmer's daughter'.
Now I realize Aldwin is right, 'Lady L' did have useful information' but it was his daft idea to fulfill his mission alone and to use violence to get information from her, apparently going through with the exchange and then having Leona followed required more brain power than Aldwin possessed.
Awful lead characters and poor plotting ruined this for me and I didn't read much, so it might have improved if I had persevered, perhaps the h&H miraculously realise their supposed to use their brains for thinking?

This is 2 of 5 novels in this series, although bk 5 isn't due for release until later in the year. I love Dominic, but had hoped his storyline would have been as gripping as all the others. Perhaps it was Gisela that didn't totally engage me. However, the authors style and imagination is to my liking, and I have read the other 3 so far in this series, and loved them. I think you will probably enjoy this one as much and have a more sympathetic approach to Gisela than I had. Well worth a read.

A good read will try to get previous books to read them too. Will look at this author again and hopefully will enjoy more of her books.
