I hate saying it, but this is the worst book I've read in a very long time. It's painfully wordy, which makes the paragraphs hard to read and lacking in clarity. It's also peppered with capitalized words that have no business being capitalized, which is, frankly, ridiculous.
The storyline itself is paper-thin, and I personally find it creepy when the male lead keeps calling his soon-to-be wife 'infant' or 'my child'- it's just plain wrong.
The 'interesting and refreshing' female lead, Pommy, is an unlikeable, naive twit, being both annoyingly clueless and patently false in her so-called friendships. And why, why, why does she honestly believe that Derek (cringe) would want to marry his own, widowed sister-in-law??
The Earl for his part spends all his time swanning around being unreasonably annoyed or patronising, so you spend three quarters of the book just waiting for him to get on with something other than being an overbearing idiot.
All in all, it's a very weak attempt at writing a decent romance, relying heavily on its obscure and expansive vocabulary in a failed attempt to lend itself credibility, and lacking in meaningfully relationships between the hopelessly shallow caricatures gracing its pages.

I loved this book, and I love this author. The stories are engaging as are the characters. There is adventure and romance. If you're looking for a steamy romance then this is not the book for you but if you enjoy old fashioned romance then it is.

very into regency novels as they usually have a good story line but this was too much of a good thing it just went on and on everything happened that possibly could happen ! it took forever to read

This is the third book I've read from this author and have loved all of them. Will look for more from her.
